What to Do This Weekend In Singapore: 19 & 20 February 2022
New Light on an Old Tale: 80th Anniversary of the Fall of Singapore
We observed the 80th anniversary of the Fall of Singapore this week. If you wish to learn more about the events that happened during World War II in Singapore, pay a visit to the National Archives Singapore’s New Light on an Old Tale: 80th Anniversary of the Fall of Singapore exhibition to view artefacts, some of which have never been on public display before. You can read more about the exhibition here.
While you are at Fort Canning, you can also take the opportunity to visit the park including the Jubilee Park playground. Or book a visit to the nearby Civil Defence Heritage Gallery.
Feed an Indian Rhino
You can now book a feeding session with Newari, an Indian rhino, at the Night Safari. Aside from feeding him, you can also interact with the animal care team to learn more about these prehistoric-looking animals. Get more details here.
Explore Singapore’s 74th National Monument
Fort Siloso and 11 of the fort’s individual structures have been gazetted as a National Monument. Personally, we think it it is one of the best places for a mix of adventure and history. Plus, admission is free too. Find out what to expect at Fort Siloso.
While at Fort Siloso, you can also take a walk along the Sentosa Coastal Trail.
Eevee Adventure Mission
Join the “Eevee Adventure Mission”, a digital on-island game where participants complete missions for the chance to win Eevee plushies and more. There will also be Eevee meet-and-greets and a dance parade. The Eevee Adventure Mission ends 20 February. Get the details here.
Make a Food Donation to Food from the Heart’s Latest Community Shop
Charity organisation Food from the Heart has opened its third Community Shop to serve the residents around Lengkok Bahru. On 18 and 19 February, they are holding a donation drive to stock up the shelves at the new location. Find out how you can play a part by giving back to help others here.

Have a roar with animatronic dinosaurs and rides at Jurassic Dinosaur – Adventure Park at Downtown East. Get more details about this dino-themed attraction here.
