Before catching ‘Rio 2’ out in theatres now, rejig your memory with a free screening of ‘Rio’ at City Square Mall.

Fitness

This Saturday, round up a couple of friends and head down to Sweat in the city: Hip Hop Yoga where you’ll get to twist yourself into pretzel shapes while a Snoop Dogg track pumps in the background.

Head down to the Skechers Electric Run, held all along the Marina Bay street circuit. It’s a 4km-long fun run filled with neon lights, and electric wonderland, and a DJ party at the end of it all. Saturday’s run is sold out, but tickets for Friday are still available.
