Is it February already? If you are wondering what you did in the January, we are hoping that you were following our weekend guides. Ok enough about us; let’s talk about you and what you are going to do this weekend.

This Saturday, KidsFest 2013 will be holding a production which brings interesting parts of Britain’s history to life. Part of the second ever KidsFest, it promises to bring quality theater productions for the little ones. Tickets, which are available at Sistic, cost $38. So expect an entertaining and educational time for you and your children.

LASALLE is currently holding an exhibition showcasing the Asian cultural performances of its performance arts students. Presented via a series of photographs and video installation, the exhibition showcases the journey of these students as they learn and perform traditional Asian arts forms. So expect, Chinese opera, ‘dikir barat’, Noh Theatre and other Asian art form to be on display by these students. Best still, it’s a free exhibition so go on and drop by LASALLE this weekend.

The weekend cannot be completed without the mention of Chinese New Year. Most of you will be busy preparing for the upcoming festivities. Did you know that the YMCA is actually conducting a guided tour which will bring you to the places where you can buy the best goodies? The tour will bring you to the Fassler seafood factory where you can buy ingredients for your reunion dinner. So bring lots of cash because we are sure there will be some spending involve on your part.

This brings us to the actual preparation for the celebrations. You might be fretting and worrying about all the cooking which you might have to do. So why not get some help? ToTT will be having a cooking class especially for the occasion. The one-day workshop will cost $68 and you will learn how to cook dishes such as a Steam Ginger Marinated Chicken with Jin Hua Ham and Mushrooms and other dishes by Chef Eric Low. The class has a limited capacity so do make sure you book your spot quickly.
