If you’re sick of going out for dinner and a movie every single weekend, try one of our top three activities this time around.


Sentosa Buskers Festival

For once, you get to participate in an activity at Sentosa that’s not hideously overpriced! The Sentosa Buskers Festival, which is on until 14 September, is an upbeat event that stretches all the way from the Beach Plaza to Palawan Beach. Fire dancers, magicians, living statues and nimble-fingered jugglers will be out in full force from 4:30pm onwards. If you’re considering a career in the circus, you’ll get chance to learn a few tricks in the “Let Me Try” interactive zones.

How much? Free. You just have to pay Sentosa’s entrance fee.


Epicurean Market

If your idea of a food fair is trying samples at NTUC, this year’s Epicurean Market, which takes place at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre from Friday to Sunday, will probably shock you. People who describe themselves as “foodies” will get spasms just thinking of sampling dishes from some of the best restaurants in the land and meeting celebrity chefs. Attend master classes on cocktail tasting, Thai desserts and European cheeses and stuff yourself with gourmet food and wine samples.

How much? $22 for a 3-day pass that also comes with a pair of Schott Zwiesel wine glasses. Citibank cardholders get 10 % off.


Noise Singapore Music Mentorship Concerts

Noise Singapore Music Mentorship Concerts

Noise Singapore is a month-long mentorship programme that matches young creative talents in Singapore with some of the most prominent artistic professionals in the country. From Friday to Sunday this week the musicians in the programme will be performing at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre and Concourse in the evening. Many of these guys are actually good, so grab a beer and rock out by the waterfront.

How much? Free!

In my previous life, I was a property lawyer who spent most of my time struggling to get out of bed or stuck in peak hour traffic. These days, as a freelance commercial writer, I work in bed, on the beach, in parks and at cafes, all while being really frugal. I like helping other people save money so they can stop living lives they don't like.
