5 Things To Do In April 2015

1. World Street Food Congress

Yup, it’s exactly what it sounds like – your favourite street eats in one place. The World Street Food Congress transcends barriers and brings to you cuisine from Malaysia to Mexico – think food trucks, local hawker stalls and street snack carts. Mark your calendars people!

Date: 8 – 12 April 2015

Time: Varies (See here for details)

Venue: Open grass field by Tan Quee Lan Street (a short walk from Bugis MRT)

3. Affordable Art Fair

Even if you’re not an art connoisseur, you probably know that good art pieces can easily burn a hole in your pocket – even if the pieces look paint splatters on a canvas (it’s called abstract art, my friend). This is where the Affordable Art Fair comes in – dozens of sculptures and paintings at reasonable prices. So if you’re looking at sprucing up your home with some art pieces, you know where to go.

Date: 17 – 19 April 2015

Time: Varies (See here for schedule)

Price: $15 (Standard Ticket)

4. Singapore Yacht Show

Even if you can’t afford a yacht of your own (because who has one just lying in their backyard am I right? #casual), the Singapore Yacht Show will give you loads to dream about. Whether you’re there to admire the luxury boats, or just mingle with like-minded people, the exhibit will have you dreaming about your next nautical adventure. And hey, it also makes for a good OOTD background.

Date: 23 – 26 April 2015

Time: Varies (See here for details)

Venue: ONE°15 Marina Club and Sentosa Cove (See here for details)

5. The Music Run

As much as you’d like to sleep in on a Saturday morning, The Music Run is something you should consider waking up for. The fun run (read: no serious marathoners here) will have you running to pumping music ranging from Pop to Old School (Michael Jackson yesssss!) with hundreds of other revelling runners.

The actual running distance is 5km (the music genre changes every 1km) so it should be easily manageable for most.

Date: 11 April 2015 (Saturday)

Time: TBC (Check Facebook page for updated details)

Venue: Sentosa Island (Route here)
