Things You Should Be Doing This Weekend (21 – 27 Jan 2019)

We are nearing the end of the first month of 2019, and man, time flies! But it seems like Singapore is gradually waking up from its slumber as we are about to approach our next major festival – the Lunar New Year. Even though it’s a predominantly Chinese festival, but it does not mean that people of all races and religions are unable to enjoy the festivities as well! So read on to find out what’s there to do this week as things pick up!
