Ready for the weekend? Here's what you can look forward to this week.

1. Visit our giant panda cub Le Le in his nursery

Singapore's first giant panda cub, now named Le Le, is finally ready to meet his adoring fans, albeit from the safety of his glass-fronted nursery.

This cutie is usually out in the nursery at 10.30 am and 3.30 pm everyday for 20-30 minutes, during which you'll get to catch a glimpse of his daily routines, from playing with specially created enrichment toys to learning to walk more confidently and, of course, napping (just like his dad Kai Kai!).

Do note that viewing sessions may be reviewed and adjusted in length and timing depending on the comfort level of Le Le as well as mummy Jia Jia.

2. The Good Citizen

Created and staged by participants of WILD RICE's Singapore Youth Theatre, this thought-provoking and unconventional play reimagines Singapore as a board game, where players are expected to fit the mould of a "good citizen" through factors like school, work, house, marriage and children. The play raises questions about exploring the grey areas beyond these parameters, and what players end up having to sacrifice in the name of conformity.
