Weekend hitlist: From Kuala Lumpur’s Heartbreak Hotel to bottomless beer in Sydney

Better days are coming. They’re called Saturday and Sunday

#1 Kuala Lumpur – Heartbreak Hotel

When: Until March 3, 2018

Where: OUR ARTPROJECTS @ THE ZHONGSHAN BUILDINGNo. 80 Jalan Rotan, off Jalan Kampung Attap

What: If a picture paints a thousand words, these art pieces speak of heartbreak. Rising talents Ibnu Alfadli Othman, Jun Kit and Mark Tan explore the all-too-familiar feelings of heartbreak through silkscreen prints, brushstrokes, fabrics and more. It’s definitely an art show to check out — hopefully, you won’t bump into any exes though!

When: Saturday, February 24, 2018

Where: Click here for a full list of locations

What: If you love Bali (and come on, everyone loves Bali),  put your feelings into action at Bali’s Biggest Clean-Up on February 24, 2018. It’s an extension of last year’s wildly successful Bali’s Biggest Beach Clean-Up , led by Bye Bye Plastic Bags‘ teen heroes Melati and Isabel Wijsen, and will encompass 55 locations across the island, engaging 12,000 volunteers to gather 40 tons of trash.

#3 Singapore – Adventures in Grimmsneyland

When: Until April 21, 2018

Where: ANDSOFORTH, 7 Raffles Place

What: There must be something in the air a week after Valentine’s Day, because Singapore’s comedy show is also harping on heartbreak with a ‘happily never after’ concept. This is a pop-up theatrical dining series that depicts a fairytale world where princesses and princes are not as you know them. And, food served are all inspired by each fairytale!

#4 Hong Kong – Lam Tsuen Well-Wishing Festival

When: Until March 4, 2018

Where: Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree, Tai Po

What: Do wishes really come true? There’s one way to find out and it comes from an old Lunar New Year tradition from Hong Kong. Visitors at Tai Po can write their heart’s desires on a card, tie it to a mandarin orange, and throw it as high as they can onto the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree. They say your wish comes true if your card doesn’t fall back down!

#5 Sydney – Frenchies Feast 

When: Until March 29, 2018

Where: Frenchies Bistro and Brewery, 6/61-71 Mentmore Ave, Rosebery

What: Two words: bottomless beer. Dinner at Frenchies is already an extravagant affair — think carved meats, baked fish or suckling pig — with a beer pairing for each course. And yes, you can get a top up! The dinner is set on a long table communal style, making it a great meal and drinks combo to catch up with a group of friends over.
