TGIF!: Your long weekend guide (25-27 Mar 2016)

For some fist-in-the-air rousing indie music, Kyo is hosting another Poptartthis Friday with DJs Weelikeme and KidG headlining the proceedings.

Theatre stalwarts Claire Wong and Noorlinah Mohamed star in Checkpoint Theatre's Recalling Mother, a production where the two actresses examine their relationship with their mothers. 

This is the last weekend and then we say goodbye to Potong Pasir. 12 artists install works in a bridge, 3 flats, one of which has been frozen in time since 1984, a black and white colonial, and ending in a cemetery. Can artists shape how we encounter a neighbourhood, its stories, its politics and its community? What does the sand quarry have to do with the kampung? http://peatix.com/event/145656/

It’s the last weekend to check out popular art walkabout OH! Open House  which goes to Potong Pasir for its latest edition. Discover stories of the neighborhood’s past – such as the sand quarry, the pond, the village, Bidadari cemetery and Alkaff Gardens – through awesome installations and performances by 17 artists peppered in different locations around the area.

The legendary songstress may no longer be with us, but Teresa Teng’s music lives on. Sichuanese singer Tong Yao pays tribute to the late iconic singer, performing classics at this one-night-only affair.

For a day out with nature, head over to the Kranji Marshes (11 Neo Tiew Lane 2; take the Kranji Express bus from Kranji MRT Station which operates daily from 8.30 am to 5.45 pm). The marshland is home to more than 170 species of birds, 54 species of butterflies and 33 species of dragonflies. The marshland is divided into two main areas: One open to the public, and a core conservation area limited to visitors who register for guided walks, due to the ecological sensitivity of the area. These guided walks will begin at the end of the month.
