TGIF!: Your weekend guide (19-21 April)

Being woken up by the sound of your children clamouring for a waffle breakfast, or by the pounding in your head because you partied too hard the night before; welcome to another Saturday morning. Instead of converting into a couch potato for the day, consider dragging yourself out for a bit. You won’t miss your sofa (that much) while you’re out, trust us.

Fashion Festival 2013

VivoCity is set to bring the excitement and glamour of fashion runways, minus the exclusivity, in their Fashion Festival 2013. Catwalk models will be strutting their stuff starting this Friday at VivoCity’s Amphitheatre, featuring brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Aimer, and Desigual. Kicking off this year’s VivoCity Fashion Festival is Tommy Hilfiger. The brand’s new Spring collection has brought back nautical fashion like a fresh breath of sea salt air. Stripes, white rope and clean navy are just some of the things you can expect on the runway.

Fictive Fingers’ Surface Printing Workshop

Get your old stained t-shirt out and bring on the creativity with Fictive Fingers’ Surface Printing Workshop! Run by two sisters, Hani and Aisah Dalduri, Fictive Fingers is a small independent craft studio that puts its focus on painting and hand printing textile and paper. They have developed their work into décor, stationery and even apparel.

In the span of two hours, you will learn stenciling, silkscreen and rubber block printing. If you have sort of an addiction for looking at craft on Pinterest, this will be probably be pure bliss. Classes run from now til next week, including this Friday evening. They are capped at 4 participants each though, so if you’re interested, you might want to register, like, now.

Record Store Day is making its way to Singapore for the first time this year, and in honour of that, Fred Perry has brought #vinyloftheday and Vinylicious Records together to curate more than 100 exclusive vinyl editions alongside all-time favourites at the Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection Shop. The exhibition will be held from this Saturday til 28 April. Located at 19 Ann Siang Road, the swankier arm of Fred Perry will also be celebrating its last store event with Record Store Day, before it moves into the heart of Orchard Road.

One of our favourite clubs, Zouk, turns 22 this weekend. When it throws a birthday, the club REALLY throws a birthday party. This year, the club celebrate sports with its own Zoukolympics and that means you got to come in your sporty best. Providing the party tunes will be DJ Gareth Emery as well as resident beat merchant Hong.

All you really need for a kick-ass Sunday is good food, good music and good finds. Trash & Treasure ticks all those boxes in ‘The Virgin Event’ happening this Sunday at Little Diner, Bukit Timah. Expect to be able to get your hands on more than 10 famous street wear brands, including OBEY, MACBETH, and illest. Since you’ll probably crave for some grub after all that shopping, you should try Little Diner’s panini selections – we saw swiss cheese and espresso bacon jam on the menu, and were instantly sold. You and your street wear lovin’ buddies will be entertained with the tunes of Someone’s iPod while you shop, eat and drink.

Want to enjoy a meal with your spouse without having to force your kids to finish their veggies (or even touch them)? Home-grown restaurant Charly T’s will be conducting a complimentary cupcake decorating workshop for the little ones with dining adults. While you enjoy their signature rotisserie chicken and ‘home-style cuisine’, your tots will be just as happy surrounded by frosting and sprinkles. Kids meals are also available from $9.50+, and offers favourites like Mini Burgers or Sausages with Fries, as well as a complimentary soft drink or homemade iced tea.
