Cirque du Soleil rarely stops by Singapore, but when they do, you can certainly expect a circus experience that’s nothing short of a class act.

28th July (Saturday)
Eat: Henry Congressional
We love this quaint little café that’s one of the few places in Singapore that sells cheese and chive flavoured Savoury Scones ($5 for four). It’s simply delish! Rumour has it that the estate this café is in has been sold en bloc and will be gone come January, so catch these goodies while you still can!
Location: 44 Holland Grove Rd, Tel: 9107 7547
Time: 9am – 10pm. Closed Mon & Tue.
Drink: Bonheur Patisserie
What better way to spend a Saturday than by sipping hot chocolate while reading Cosmo? Bonheur Patisserie’s signature hot chocolate, $4.20, melts Valrhona Equitoriale (55%) chocolate pellets in full-cream milk. Mmm-mmm …
Location: 70 Duxton Road, Tel: 6221 1148
Time: 10am – 8pm daily. Closed on Sundays
Play: Effective Parenting as a Couple
Parenting is no easy feat, especially when factored into the equation of juggling work, friends and family. Marriage Central will be holding a marriage talk “Effective Parenting as a Couple”, with tips on how to nurture your child as a couple. Register via firstname.lastname@example.org.

29th July (Sunday)
Eat: Covelli Italian Bistro & Wine Bar
Who says ladies only eat salad? We’re raving mad for Covelli’s Filetto di Manzo, $38, for its succulent tenderloin beef cut and sautéed Mushroom side in Marsala Wine Reduction. See you there!
Location: #B2-13/22 Orchard Central. Tel: 6238 6400
Time: 11am – 10pm
Drink: Little Saigon
Pineapple lovers, rejoice. We found Vietnamese cuisine bar and restaurant Little Saigon that not only serves exotic fares, but also cocktails for the sweet tooth. Pineapple-infused The Star, $15, gets it right down to a tangy T.

Play: La Cage Aux Folles
Weekdays are a drag, so spice up your Sunday with W!ld Rice’s La Cage Aux Folles — a story of two families feuding over a glamorous nightclub. The star-studded cast, which includes Ivan Heng, Tan Kheng Hua, and Hossan Leong, will keep you in stitches — and all pumped up to start a brand new week. Tickets from $35 to $120 at Sistic.
