2. Azaleas of Shangri-La


Check out Gardens by the Bay's newest seasonal exhibit from now till 5 May.

Taking place at Orchid Haven and Cloud Forest, Azaleas of Shangri-La draws inspiration from the legendary Shangri-La – a mythical utopia described in the fantasy novel Lost Horizon – to transport you into an enchanting paradise set against the backdrop of the Himalayas.

The vibrant landscape features over 15 varieties of azaleas in pink, red, yellow, orange and cream, mirroring the equally colourful Himalayan architecture and artefacts on display.

These magnificent blooms are complemented by a collection of traditional medicinal herbs such as lingzhi, cordyceps, beard moss and saffron, as well as flora native to the Himalayan region like rhododendrons and cymbidiums.

3. Little Shop of Horrors

Brace yourself for the diabolically delicious musical Little Shop of Horrors this weekend, staged at SOTA Drama Theatre by Sing'Theatre.

With music by Alan Menken and the original story by Howard Ashman, the creative geniuses behind Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, this smash-hit horror comedy rock musical has been sinking its teeth into the hearts of theatre enthusiasts for over 30 years.

The story follows a meek floral assistant Seymour who stumbles across a peculiar plant he names "Audrey II" after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore makes a deal with Seymour – fame and fortune in exchange for a rather unconventional diet of human blood.

As the plant's appetite grows, so does the chaos, and before you know it, Seymour is entangled in a web of out-of-this-world origins and global domination schemes.
