It’s a confusing time. Halloween has just ended, with stray pumpkin lanterns still strung up here and there, but already there are Christmas decorations creeping their way into every corner even though it’s nowhere near Yuletide. If anything, this just puts us into a premature holiday mood, and we’re all ready to let loose in anticipation of the holiday season.

Hang in there, my friends. While you’re waiting for the year-end parties to happen, there are tons of events to enjoy this month when you need a breather – including art exhibitions, wine tasting, and music festivals.

1. Go crazy with photo spots, ball pits, and free milk tea at The Bubble Tea Factory

With The Bubble Tea Factory’s pop-up in Singapore – somewhat similar to the Museum Of Ice Cream in San Fran and Selfie Museum in KL – you can further indulge in your love for this milky beverage with a series of colourful themed photo rooms

The unutilised areas below our MRT viaducts seems like wasted space, but Fish at AMK has cleverly jumped in to make good use of it – by opening their new prawning outlet there. Despite the fact that it’s outdoors, the area is sheltered so you won’t be sweating too much under the sun or getting soaked during a drizzle.

It’s safe to say that Disney cartoon movies were a huge part of everyone’s childhood. While we already know the storylines – and soundtracks – of these magical classics at the back of our hands, most of us have never really thought about what goes on behind the scenes. Disney: Magic of Animation at the ArtScience Museum will give you a glimpse of that animation process, through original sketches and illustrations dating way back to the 1920s.

To most of us, the migrant workers that we pass on a daily basis are just another face or stranger. But they’re more than just another construction worker or domestic helper – each of these human beings have left their families in search of a better life, and all have their own set of compelling stories about their struggles, joys, and heartache.

The neighbourhood of Bukit Panjang is not typically where one would go for an outing – unless you’re already living there. But there’s more than meets the eye with this underrated enclave in the West. It’s full of scenic spots – including a floating wetland with scenic boardwalk, a glow-in-the-dark parth, and a less explored nature park – as well as a bunch of supper spots that open past midnight.
