Kick-start Sunday with a delicious Mother’s Day brunch, then take Mummy Dearest down to these events for some fun quality time!
Music in the garden with Mama
Mums deserve a little R&R, and what’s more relaxing than being surrounded with lush greenery, while the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and associate conductor, Jason Lai, serenades attendees with beautiful numbers from Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Massent. The SSO will also be gifting mothers with a special Mother’s Day prezzie at its booth – sounds like music to your ears, no?
SSO Classics in the Park: Mother’s Day Concert, Sun 14 May 2017 at 6pm, Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage, Singapore Botanic Gardens, 1 Cluny Road, Singapore 259569. Free admission.
Workout with Mama
A healthy mum is a happy mum, and we stand by that. Free for all mothers, this energetic and fun workout is led by popular Zumba instructor, Kim Christian. Prepare to move to the groove of upbeat Zumba music. Trust us, your mum will be beaming (and sweating) after this heart-pumping activity.
ZUMBA with Mom, Sun 14 May 2017 from 10am-12pm, SAFRA Mount Faber, 2 Telok Blangah Way, Singapore 098803. Free admission for ladies, $5 for men.
Silent Movie with Mama
Or treat Mum to the Sunset Cinema, and let her soak in the alfresco vibes while enjoying award-winning films. Take her down to Tanjong Beach at 5pm for pre-film drinks and bites, and when dusk hits, take a seat on the deck chairs and revel in the acclaimed feature of the day – Captain Fantastic. As it’s a silent cinema event, Sunset Cinema will issue you a pair of wireless, noise-cancelling headphones, to make sure you don’t miss out on any juicy bits of dialogue.
Shop and create with Mama
Does Mum need some retail therapy? Bring her out for some shopping at Metta Café, where vendors will be selling their handmade items, DIY crafts and vintage clothes. Complementary nail services and free items will be up for grabs too. If your mum has green fingers, she can even get creative at the terrarium workshop there. Plus, you’ll get to gift Mum your floral masterpiece after!
Mother’s Day Bazaar, Sat 13 May 2017 from 8am-4pm, Level 1, Metta Building, 32 Simei Street, Singapore 529950. Free admission to bazaar, $15 for the terrarium workshop.
