A 3-day cultural and culinary feast: Hari Raya Puasa, Diner en Blanc, and Ratha Yatra. Only in Singapore do you have such diversity.

Didn’t get invited to Diner en Blanc on 18 July? No worries, there are plenty of other fun and frugal things to do this week without having to pay a hefty fee, pack your own food, bring a table and chairs, and adhere to a strict dress code where you run the risk of wearing the same thing as someone else.
