2. Watch three Singaporeans fight it out on MasterChef Asia

MasterChef has finally come to Asia, and three lucky Singaporeans were picked to duke it out in the pressure cooker! Watch 15 contestants battle for the top prize, which includes US$50,000 ($70,800) cash. The series premieres tonight at 9pm on Lifetime (StarHub TV Ch. 514).

3. Visit the circus in town

The circus has come to town! But it’s not the usual slapstick show you’d expect. Instead, this is a magical performance on an art-installation stage that will mesmerise and show you the relationship between the circus and contemporary art. Watch out for the three small circus tents, or cabanons, in the open field opposite Bugis Junction.

To do

1. Slide down a giant inflatable slide – four HDB storeys high


Bouncy obstacles and walls are the next festival fad, so hop onto the bandwagon at the Sentosa Fun Fest. Besides the four storey-high inflatable slide, you’ll also get to slip down a horizontal slide, dip in a foam pool, navigate an inflatable maze and more.

If tickets for this weekend are already sold out, don’t worry – the mega festival is on until Sep 13, so you can still book tickets for next weekend.
