TGIF!: Your weekend guide (7-9 March 2014)

Round up your girlfriends and catch an eclectic mix of acts at the Mosaic music festival, theatre production 'Poor Thing' or even head down for a zumba class together. 

Music and nightlife:

It’s the 10th and final installment of the Mosaic music festival at the Esplanade, which begins this weekend and runs till 16 March.

Catch the likes of Hellogoodbye and Kurt Rosenwinkel on Friday, Caspian on Saturday and Olafur Arnalds on Sunday. Also check out our gallery of Mosaic highlights where we’ve picked some hot ticket acts during the 10-day long festival.   

Over at Zouk, party with your girlfriends as Belgian DJ, The Magician makes his Singapore debut. DJs Adrian Wee and Aldrin provide support.

Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers’ (The Magician Remix)



Catch The Necessary Stage’s riveting and interactive theatre experience, 'Poor Thing', which sheds light on ugly Singaporean behavior. But first, read our review.  


If you’re keen on keeping fit, why not sign up for Pilates classes at SAFRA Toa Payoh, Tampines or Mount Faber. This class caters to people of different fitness, strength and flexibility levels, so there’s no need for beginner’s anxiety.

Over at Zinga fitness, which offers a variety of Zumba variations (including Zumba Fitness, Zumba Toning and Bokwa) you can bring along your gal pal and they pay only $8 for any class on the day. Offer runs from 8 to 14 March. More details here.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Marina Barrage will also be playing host to the X-Bionic Venus Run. There will also be a unique collection of collectible women’s shoes on sale for charity at level 1 of the barrage. The catch is that they’re made from multi-coloured and multi-patterned 3M scotch tapes, so they aren’t meant to be worn. But we think they’d make pretty additions to any shoe-lover’s mantel. All proceeds will go towards the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations.

Shopping & Dining:

But of course, there’s nothing quite like a pair of real shoes. Surrealist Love Scene and WEARTO is holding a clearance sale at their warehouse. Come armed with your shopping bags and grab shoes priced at $30, $50 and $80. Brands such as Irregular Choice, Poetic Licence, United Nude, French Sole, Lulu Guinness and more will be on sale. More details here.

iLight at Marina Bay, Asia’s only sustainable light art festival, will feature more than 25 light art installations from around the world that will transform the Bay into a twinkling, magical landscape. Check out our gallery of 10 highlights from iLight 2014

Held in conjunction with the festival is dining festival Savour 2014 , which has moved to a new home at the Marina promontory.

There are over 20 acclaimed chefs (some of whom are real lookers, take it from us) who will be on hand to cook for you, teach you how to cook, and mingle with guests. Our friends over at HungryGoWhere have put together a guide on what to expect at Savour 2014.   You have until 9 March.

After Savour, you can take a stroll down to the waterfront of the Marina Bay Sands event plaza, where some of the tenants and F&B brands from Pasarbella will be setting up shop from 7 to 30 March. Favourites like Dutch Colony Coffee Co. and Sea Salt Caribbean Deli will be there too.
