TGIF!: Your weekend guide (28-30 Nov 2014)

The long awaited weekend is finally here again. Who says weekends are all about lazing in bed and dreading the Monday Blues? Fill your weekend with fun, laughter, and maybe even wit as you bond with your loved ones – friends and family.

For those needing a good laughing session after 5 days of stressing out, you need A Night of Comedy with Rex Navarrete (28 -29 Nov). As one of the hardest working Fil-American comedians, you will experience a change of American stand-up comedy with him; and of course while losing yourself in the world of laughter.

To shake off the weekdays’ blues further, and if you prefer loud music and heaps of dancing, One Night in Ibiza  is h(e)aven for you this weekend! Good news is, you don’t have to spend thousands to go crazy in the party capital of the world. SPACE IBIZA will be here at Siloso Beach.

DJ Gareth Emery will be spinning his unique blend of trance, house and electro at Zouk on Saturday.

Head down to the Suntec Convention Centre for the first Singapore Art Fair. It is the first fair in Asia to feature modern and contemporary art from the Middle East, North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, with art from 59 galleries from 22 countries and by 230 artists.

Yes, gourmet tongues, you are not forgotten. Spanish Wine Tasting Eventhosted by SindhiWines, located in the highest vineyards in the whole European continent, will be held at Esplanade rooftop this Friday. Or coffee connoisseurs want to expand ­your coffee knowledge? Join Coffee Talk  where you go through the journey and history of the coffee bean.

Let American rock band Hoobastank be ‘the reason’ to blow $118 this 30 November. Expect to hear hits ‘Crawling In The Dark’, ‘Same Direction’, ‘Remember Me’ and ‘The Reason’ as well as songs from their latest album ‘Fight of Flight’.

Can you hear the sleigh bells ringing already? Yes Christmas is almost here, and Gardens By The Bay will be transformed into a Christmas Wonderland this holiday season. Don’t miss the Southeast Asian debut of stunning sculptures of light from Italy. Come explore the European-style Festive Market, check out an enchanting 200-year-old Spiegeltent and experience winter in the tropics as we celebrate Yuletide in the Flower Dome.

Talking about history… isn’t it interesting to witness a live demonstration of the wet plate collodion process – a tradition photographic process invented over 150 years ago. Bask in the professional photography scene at National Museum of Singapore(Nov 29).

This holiday season, 'Mystica' is back at the Night Safari for its fourth annual run – the boldest and its most glamorous one yet. Every Friday and Saturday from 21 November to 20 December, visitors will be greeted by performers dressed up in costumes and various mascots as they take the nocturnal walking trail.

Get ready your comfortable gears and be spontaneous atRace Against Time. Ever aspired to be a botanist and wondered how it feels? Head down to Singapore Botanic Gardens this weekend and learn about the urgency of plant exploration, collection, and specific documentation as species and habitats face the threat of endangerment.
