Free things to do this weekend

With the highly anticipated opening of gallery precinct Gillman Barracks, art lovers have much to look forward to at this up-and-coming destination for contemporary art.  Open to the public from 15th Sept onwards; catch the much lauded exhibits this weekend.

That’s not all, we rounded up the top ten art expositions currently on in the city; contemporary, surreal, modern and mixed media, take a cue from our go-to guide.

For yet another art gallery fix, head to new Japanese art gallery Nikei Fine Art. They launch their debut exhibition 'Kaomise' with a collection of artworks by renowned artists from Japan and other regions in Asia.

Cat lovers unite at the annual ‘Cats of the world’ photo exhibition and furry-flea market. Go gawk at pictures of fantastic felines, and pick up a catty trinket or two.

Restaurant week is around the corner (7-14 October 2012) and registration begins this weekend.  With meals going for as low as $25++, start your selections early and snap up the best deals here.

 The Malay Heritage Centre re-launches this month with a refurbished new avatar, and they are celebrating by hosting the Malay CultureFest with an array of activities for everyone - folk stories, workshops, lectures concerts and more all month long.

F1 fever is coming to town and PUMA has prepared an F1 Simulator for those who want some F1 fun for free. Lucky shoppers will also stand to win a chance to meet Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg in person.

Want some respite before F1 frenzy next weekend – take a quite stroll down the Changi Point coastal walk, the 2.6km boardwalk that goes all the way westwards to the Changi Beach Club (at Andover Road), offering views of the open sea, private yachts, Pulau Ubin and parts of Malaysia.
