Audi Fashion Festival and more this weekend

The weekends are finally here, just in time for you to catch the remaining days of Audi Fashion Festival 2012(through May 20). Catch Jonathan Simkhai, named one of Elle.com’s top 12 designers to watch and Saena Chun, who has worked for Celine, Chloe and Sonia Rykiel and many other big names in fashion!

Still on the subject on fashion. This weekend also sees the return of Blueprint Emporium(through May 20). Head down to Suntec Convention Centre to get your mitts on limited edition as well as sample pieces from the most coveted and emerging fashion designers.

If you haven’t already been to the Universal Studios Singapore, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to roll out. Experience the newest attraction, Transformers: The Ride, in a hyper-realistic 3D thrill ride! Join the Autobots as you become a freedom fighter in the ultimate battle against the evil forces.

While you’re in Sentosa, why not go go for the Maritime Silk Route Exhibition @ Maritime Experiential Museum & Aquarium (MEMA)? Housing several exhibitions based around the theme of the Maritime Silk Road, this steel-and-glass ship-hull museum features the Typhoon Theatre -- definitely not for the seasick ones. The Typhoon Theatre allows audiences to “board” an Arabia-bound sailing ship and in the journey, experience a storm. Grab your adventure gear and go forth.
