Potted Potter, Wonder Girls, Aaron Kwok and more this weekend

Seth MacFarlane from Family Guy makes his cinematic debut this weekend as the voice of the foul-mouthed teddy bear in the movie TED and Ethan Hawke stars in this murder mystery set in Paris; The Woman In The Fifth.

Get the ‘unauthorised’ Harry Potter experience, with Potted Potter; two guys take on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes.

Asia's Michael Jackson and part of the ‘Four Heavenly Kings’ of Cantopop, Aaron Kwok will put up a performance like none other with revolving stage effects and breath-taking dance moves. Don’t miss this one.

Even if you are not a K-pop fan, there is something about The Wonder Girls; great dancers, gorgeous good looks, and mega hits to their credit. This weekend catch their first full solo gig in Singapore and is part of their highly-anticipated World Tour 2012.

Ingrid Michaelson,  an indie singer-songwriter from New York, British band Mystery Jets and Swedish pop sensation Robyn are all playing in Singapore this September. Buy your tickets now, if you haven’t already or browse our concert picks of the month before taking the plunge.

Carrefour is shutting down operations in Singapore, and the aisles are already emptying fast. Make one last grocery run, and we have a roundup of exclusive buys and clearance discounts to help.

Immerse yourself in soulful contemporary tunes performed by local and regional artists from Malaysia and Indonesia at Pesta Raya: Songs of the Soul.

Do your bit, and get fit. Introduced as part of SAFRA's 40th Anniversary, the 40,000m Challenge will see climbing enthusiasts scaling a total of 40,000 metres over six days to raise funds for charity; the grand finale culminates on the 8th.  

The Philharmonic Chamber Choir (TPCC) returns to SOTA Concert Hall with another exciting collaboration – this time, with Japanese shakuhachi master, Ueno Koshuzan. Come to the concert, close your eyes, open your ears and be mesmerized by the music.
