Polling Day now over and in case you’re wondering what to do this weekend – here’s the SG Lifestyle Team’s weekly round-up of FREE WEEKEND ACTIVITES TO DO IN SINGAPORE (well, mostly free) during Phrase 2 as we try to adapt to a new normal while waiting for the current COVID-19 situation to improve.
This includes a mixture of virtual/digital events/activities you can do at home, as well as physical events/places to visit/attend. Nevertheless, please do your due diligence to do your part to stay safe.
Recommended Advisory Notice: Let’s play our part to Stay Safe during this period:
Wear a mask and see a doctor promptly if you are sick!
Wash your hands regularly and properly using soap and water!

3) Get Creative: Design for Deities: An International Heritage Design Competition #SupportLocalSG
Propose a redesign of the statue of the Monkey God – an ancient mythological figure known for his playfulness, intelligence and tenacity – for a secular international audience. The competition is organised by Say Tian Hng Buddha Shop, Singapore’s last Taoist effigy-making shop, established in 1896.
Through this competition, we hope to to reverse the decline of the 124-year-old shop in partnerhip with the community through the co-creation of a new contemporary product line, so that more non-Chinese audiences around the world can appreciate the stories of these mythological figures – and the timeless values they embody – in exciting new ways.
Cash prizes are also up for grabs with the 1st prize at S$1.5k. Open to all regardless of race, religion or country of residence as well as designers of all skill levels – professional, amateur or zero. Submit your design by 9 August 2020. Join HERE or find out more!

The tour will also be interspersed with personal reflections on the video games they play.
