Laughter is the best medicine this week!

Hello people, and welcome to a new week. We’ve got a kick-ass programme of events lined up for you this week, with massive sales, digital installations and a comedic bonanza like no other to round it off!


Catch Asia’s beloved comedians from all over the region as they come together for one night only at the Kings and Queen of Comedy Asia. In case you’re wondering, the Queen of the night (and MC) is no other than wildly popular local diva Kumar, whose razor-sharp insight and antics are beloved by locals and foreigners alike. Prepare for some serious bellyache as the Kings (and Queen) work their comedic magic! Get your tickets now, or find out how to win a pair today!

While you’re working up to end the week on a bang, don’t miss out on our selection of world-class entertainment during the week either. Drop by the Esplanade on Monday for our very own expert contributor Patrick Chng’s solo performance. Showcasing classics from Hank Williams to Bob Dylan, to originals gleaned through his years in music, travel through time with Patrick and his guitar!

If you’re in the mood to shop this week, you’re likely to be one very happy camper. Isetan’s Japan Fashion and Lifestyle Festival stretches till Thursday, so get your fix of all things Japanese right now. Adidas is also having a massive clearance sale with merchandise at up to 70 percent off, so what are you waiting for!
