Say goodbye to boring weekends with our weekend guide!

To eat

1. Chef Eric Low’s creations at #happyplateSG campaign


As part of the #happyplatesg campaign to minimise food waste at home, celebrated chef Eric Low will be hosting free cooking demonstrations every Sunday until Nov 22 at Tangs Orchard.

In addition, dine in at The Providore at Tangs and take a picture of your empty plate for a chance to win a hands-on cooking session at The Providore.

Don’t forget to also post a picture of your empty plate online and hashtag #happyplatesg. For every three hashtags, Electrolux will donate a food bundle through The Food Bank Singapore to help a family in need.

2. Rooftop Peruvian grill


Switch up your weekend plans with dinner and drinks at Tiger’s Milk, Singapore’s first Peruvian rooftop bar and grill.

Enjoy signature items such as Tiger’s Milk Trio of the Para Picar (small plates), where shots of seabass and octopus are served in three different variations of spiciness; Amarilla, Ricoto and Nikkei. For gutsy diners, be sure to try the Peru street delicacy, Lamb Heart, which is marinated in harissa paste and red wine vinegar, then served with salsa criolla.

Finally, end your night with a classic Peruvian cocktail like the refreshing and tangy Pisco Sour.

To see

1. See Star Wars aircraft and characters in the flesh


Can’t wait for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to begin? Then join Imperial Stormtroopers and the starfighter X-wing pilots in an action-packed exhibition at Changi Airport Terminal 3, where a life-sized X-wing takes centre stage, and the TIE fighter stands tall at Terminal 2.

Bonus: On Monday (Nov 16), head down to Shaw House Urban Plaza (Level 1) for the official Countdown Event.

There, you can get the exclusive Star Wars: The Force Awakens Light Side/Dark Side package, which includes two IMAX 3D tickets to the first midnight screening on Dec 17, two Star Wars: The Force Awakens IMAX 3D movie vouchers, four regular popcorn combo vouchers and two sets of limited edition movie collectibles.

2. Watch the epic return of Singapore’s #1 musical

Beauty World has seen multiple stagings since its debut in 1988, but this time, it’s back with a difference. The story follows a small-town girl from Batu Pahat who sets out on a quest to find her father in Singapore. She winds up in a dubious cabaret, where she learns some heartbreaking truths about love and life.

One highlight to look out for is actress Jeanette Aw, who has forgone her usual good-girl roles to portray the beautiful but vindictive cabaret queen, Lulu.

3. See the famed CERN Collider in real life


The award-winning Collider exhibition will be making its Asian debut at ArtScience Museum this Saturday (Nov 14). Explore all 27km of the world’s greatest scientific experiment, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which made the 21st Century’s most exciting scientific discovery, the Higgs Boson.

You can also be immersed into the heart of an experiment that will recreate the conditions that existed just after the Big Bang.
