Constantly finding yourself bored during the weekends or your off-days? Perhaps you’re guilty of not making the best possible use of your time! Grab a seat, and take your pick from this lot of exciting events coming your way this week.
Chui Huay Lim Club, 150 Keng Lee Road Ballroom @ Level 2
Thursday, 30th March 2017, 7pm
A very damning and worrying statistic informs us that 1 in 10 Singaporeans above the age of 60 suffer from dementia. Dementia is an incredibly damaging brain disease that affects so many aspects of mental performance that it makes it extremely difficult to live well. If you suffer or know someone who suffers from dementia, set aside some time to swing by this event to educate yourself about this deadly disease from Dr Neo Han Yee. Another relevant subject would be one on stress by Mr Ajahn Brahm, a topic that I would say is relatable to a lot of us Singaporeans, thanks to the hustle and bustle of 21st century living.
Urban Plaza (Near Decathalon) Blk 750 Viva Business Park
Friday, 31st March 2017, 5pm
If you’ve been dropping the ball on your exercise regimen, why not give this little activity a try? Fitness Marathon – organised by the Health Promotion Board – is happening this Friday at the Urban Plaza with 2 main activities (Zumba & KpopX fitness) set to be held. Both sports are very dynamic, exciting and might even lead you to discover a new talent alongside the heart-pumping Latin and K-pop music. I’d strongly urge you to give it a go because it’s a great opportunity to get back into shape in a fun and novel way.
Gardens by the Bay Silver Leaf
Saturday, 1st April 2017, 5.30pm
Enjoy the scenic views that Gardens by the Bay has to offer? Why not double that joy with the serenity that yoga provides with this event – Yoga in the Garden. Join fellow yoga enthusiasts as they celebrate the 5th anniversary of this annual event on the 1st of April. Bring along your friends and family to refresh the mind, body and soul with an evening consisting of therapeutic yoga exercises. Remember to bring your own yoga mat and water for hydration!
If you look hard enough, there’s always something productive to do in Singapore! Whether it’s a neat little outdoor activity session or an informative talk on health issues, getting to learn/do something new is always a fun way to spend your time. Why veg out when you can head out?
