What To Do This Weekend (13 to 15 Aug) - Stay Safe!

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

1. Celebrate National Day all August with SAFRA clubs


Although National Day is technically over (NDP postponement to 21 August notwithstanding), the festivities are still ongoing at various SAFRA clubs across the island.

Visit SAFRA Mount Faber to learn about the history of Singapore's iconic Merlion mascot, or take part in a quiz game where you'll test your knowledge of our landmarks and see how many you can guess correctly. Then swing by SAFRA Punggol for a delicious Food Hunt where you'll make use of clues on Food Hunt posters displayed at participating SAFRA Punggol F&B vendors to guess the names of various local dishes.

2. Orchid Haven: Flight of the Moth Orchid

Check out Gardens by the Bay's newest permanent flower exhibit, Orchid Haven. Located within the Cloud Forest cooled conservatory, Orchid Haven is wholly dedicated to showcasing orchids, featuring over a thousand exotic breeds at any given time via both permanent and rotating displays.

The first of said temporary displays? None other than Flight of the Moth Orchid, a display that pays tribute to the Phalaenopsis orchid, a diverse genus whose floral form resembles that of a moth in flight. You can look forward to more than 800 Phalaenopsis orchids of 17 taxa are in a breathtaking “waterfall” of cascading blooms, with the orchids on display carefully selected to show the distinct and occasionally dramatic characteristics this breed possesses, such as bright colours, peculiar patterns and markings, as well as floral mutations that result in even more stunning varieties.
