I had the opportunity to visit the recently opened Alive Museum, an optical illusion museum where you actually become a part of the artwork. Located in Suntec City, the museum covers 10,000 sqft. It has over 80 works of art, 9 of which are locally themed. That number will increase to more than 100 by early next year. The works of art are all hand-painted by a team of artists who refresh and update about one-third of the collection and exhibits every year, allowing visitors to have a different experience each time they visit.

For those of us who do not have NDP tickets, here are some free events happening in other parts of our island nation on 9 August. (more…)
If you weren’t one of the lucky few who scored tickets to the National Day Parade this year (or you just don’t like dealing with massive crowds), but still want to see the amazing fireworks live, you’re in luck. Every Saturday evening, as part of the National Day Parade rehearsals, you can watch rehearsals of these awesome visual displays. The rehearsals started last Saturday, but there are still three more rehearsals to go. Sounds like a nice way to spend a night out!
In addition to the 40 Community Clubs and 3 Safra Clubs that will be screening the World Cup final match live (you can find a list of them here and here), you can also catch the game at 38 McDonalds outlets and at the newly opened Singapore Sports Hub with free parking at the Singapore Indoor Stadium carpark from midnight until 6am.

Where can you get a buffet, a private room with a plush sofa and big screen TV, free wifi, and free entertainment (up to 4 hours) for less than $15? Did I mention that the buffet also comes with free-flow coffee, tea, soft drinks, and ice cream? You’ll find all this and more at Kbox. For other budget-friendly buffet, please see my previous posts here (part 1) and here (part 2). (more…)
As ticket prices for some cinemas have recently increased, more and more people are trying to find good deals. Finding the cheapest option can be quite confusing since each cinema chain has different pricing tiers, promotions, and terms. If you want to get a good deal ($7 and under), I’ve created this easy-to-use chart that summarises all the current promotions. The prices on the chart are valid for all of 2014, unless otherwise specified. (more…)
Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, but to the secular community, it is a celebration of spring, of new beginnings, and of hope, peace and harmony. Earth Day is a day meant to promote awareness for conservation, sustainability, and environmental protection. Both are days to honour and respect the creator and/or the creation. And both can be great opportunities to educate and inspire the next generation. Here are some free events happening around Singapore that celebrate these two important days. (more…)
