Alternative title: Mothership's attempt at an events listing.

GameStart 2017 at Suntec Convention Centre
October 14 & 15, 11am to 9pm

An event for players (the nerdy kind), GameStart 2017 will offer visitors the chance to cosplay and try the latest games, including the new augmented reality game HADO, which is making its Southeast Asian debut.

This year’s event will also include a new cyberpunk-themed dining area, and a tabletop area for board, card and dungeon games.


Free entry to the National Museum of Singapore
October 13 – 15, 10am to 10pm

If you’ve never been invited for a birthday party in your life, this one’s for you.

The National Museum of Singapore is turning 130, and is celebrating it with free entry, interactive tours, live music performances, art installations, and an “artisanal retro market” (perfect for all you printed-shirt wearing, manbun-sporting hipsters lurking out there).

There will also be a birthday cake-cutting ceremony on October 14 (for the museum. Not you, Margaret), and a birthday cupcake giveaway by Cedele on both days.

So you can forget, for a moment, all those times you ever had to spend a birthday alone… via GIPHY

Yellow Ribbon Community Art exhibition at the Singapore Art Museum
October 7 – 22

Another art event, but this one’s to celebrate new beginnings.

The 10th edition of the Yellow Ribbon Community Art Exhibition will feature 108 works of art created by inmate artists from Changi Prison Complex and Changi’s Women Prison.

There will also be a mixed-media installation by the artist-mentors to the inmates, which comprises a large suspended hourglass made of broken and discarded materials.


#STAYCAYFORBAE promotion at Hotel G Singapore
Till December 29

Not limited to just people with a bae, this staycation package includes a one-night stay in a king-bedded room, $50 credit to be spent at one of the hotel’s two restaurants, and two glasses of wine.

You will also get complimentary use of a Handy device: a smartphone with mobile data, a concierge on-the-go, and access to tourism-related information.

Totally seals the deal.
