We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming with these concerts, parties, restaurants, sports events, art shows, new stores and more. Remember to catch that break!
Wake up. Work. Go home. Repeat – enough with this routine, we say! Quit being a robot, and disrupt your daily grind with these offbeat and unique things to do in Singapore. Because all work and no play makes Jane a dull dame, right? We’ll be updating this round-up weekly, so watch this space!

Explore a museums of over a thousand cameras
With the way smartphone cameras are advancing, the average happy snapper would struggle to find reasons to bring out even a compact DSLR. But if you still find a special sort of charm in vintage photography equipment, you’ll want to pay a visit to the new Vintage Camera Museum at Jalan Kledek.

Bust a move at Zouk
Take my word for it: there is no party in Singapore quite like Mambo Jambo; in fact, Mambo Jambo has transcended beyond the dancefloors, and has evolved into an enduring relic of Singapore pop culture. What’s with the hype? You’ll spot the most ridiculous charades-like dance moves synced in unison to cheesy yet timeless ’80s new-wave classics from Bananarama to Rick Astley. Leave your pretentiousness at the door; it ain’t that kind of party.
Mambo Jambo, 25 June, Zouk Singapore, 3C River Valley Road, The Cannery, Singapore 179022, p. 6738 2988. Entry at $35 (for women) and $45 (for men).
