Here are 5 things in S’pore you can choose not to do from July 14 to 20, 2017

Singapore Food Festival, Baybeats, Rasa Fiesta Singapura Block Party, Story Party Singapore, and Millennial 20/20

By Nadia Shah | July 14, 2017

Because when you’re presented with so many options, it’s sometimes easier to just do nothing.

Singapore Food Festival 2017
July 14 – 30

This event is for people who cannot imagine having to live without food (everyone, in other words).
There will be local food. Lots of local food. If you’re going, remember to wear your maternity pants.


Baybeats 2017 at Esplanade
July 14 – 16, 6pm till late

This is another event for people who #supportlocal. There will be performances by budding and prominent artists from the local music scene, as well as some regional acts (so you can #supportregional too).

Do check out the festival village featuring homegrown indie crafters and entrepreneurs. Many local things. Much pride.

Rasa Fiesta Singapura Block Party at Jiak Chuan Road
July 15, 3pm to 10.30pm

You won’t be judged if you drink before 5pm at this event. There will be rum and tacos from 3pm, both along the street and at participating shops. Parents can also drink guilt-free — there’ll be a playground to drop kids off at (we know that’s what you’ve always dreamed of).

And chances are quite high you won’t have to ask this.


Story Party Singapore: Dating Stories at Blu Jaz Cafe
July 17 & 18, 7pm and 9pm

This is a show for people who have no life but enjoy living vicariously through other people’s dating stories (no shame in that). Expect to hear true dating stories from professional storytellers and one member of the audience.

There will also be drinks and other single people, so you may one day have your own dating stories to tell too.

Early-bird promotion for Millennial 20/20 at ArtScience Museum
Till September 1, 2017

A summit for business people who just don’t get millennials.

It will take place on October 25 and 26 and focus on the future of commerce, with 3000+ brands involved. Early-bird tickets are now available.
