SINGAPORE FOOD EXPO

Bring your appetite because this year’s Singapore Food Expo will house more than 100 exhibitors and vendors across all categories of produce and cuisines of flavour. We’re talking everything from luxurious bird’s nest and health tonics to local favourites like satay, and something called Lion Dance meat balls that we’re truly intrigued to try.
Till 28 May, at the Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands
Remember Deloris van Cartier, the aspiring disco diva who got put into protective custody in a convent where she rocked up a storm? The movie we all loved, Sister Act, is back, and brighter than ever, but this time on stage as a five-time Tony-nominated musical that makes its glorious debut in Asia. Celebrate the power of friendship with a night of motown, soul and funk anthems that will have you dancing in your seats.

MYRIAD—SOLO EXHIBITION BY CHERIE A BITANGA
22 April—18 June, at Di Legno Gallery
This exhibition of 10 portraits paint a picture of modern nonyas, interpreted by the kaleidoscopic eye of Cherie A Bitanga. The Filipino artist made Singapore home in 2010, and has captured the colours that bloom not just on the traditional kebayas her subjects don, but on their flower crowns, beautiful faces and within them, as diverse hopes and dreams, and vibrant heritage.
