The four-day work week whizzed by so fast the weekend almost (read: almost) came too soon! Whether it’s a high intensity, fat-torching workout to sweat away the stress you are looking for, or simply a place to savour wine and cocktails as you bask under the warm tropical sunset, here’s a curate of what’s going on this weekend. Take your pick:

Asics Training Escapade

Obsessed about fitness, eating clean and leading an enviable (read: Instagrammable) lifestyle? So do the women who will be attending and helming Asics’ very first training escapade.

W!ld Rice’s La Cage Aux Folles

Back for a revitalised run after it first hit the stage in 2012, W!ld Rice’s La Cage Aux Folles revolves around a family who own a nightclub in Tanjong Pagar, and their struggle to stay together, fabulous and true to their beautiful selves in an increasingly divided world. Expect an extravaganza of gender-bending beauty, musicality and fashion! lacage.sg

Game of Thrones Pencil Micro-sculpture Exhibition

Honey, Salavat Fidai has shrunk the Iron Throne!

Sunset Cinema presented by Peroni 

Make this the ultimate movie date—this open-air cinema event will be showing award-winning films like Lion, Arrival and The Founder at Tanjong Beach, Sentosa, at sunset, as you lounge on comfy deck chairs, with cocktails and tapas in hand. And once the end credits are done, you can dance under the moonlight as a DJ comes on to spin easy, house beats into the night. www.sunsetcinema.com.sg
