Exhibition Openings & Book Launches: Mindy Tan & Charmaine Poh
Even though Pride Month has concluded, we can still show our support for our LGBTQ friends. Local street photographers Mindy Tan and Charmaine Poh will be hosting their events, The Hour Before She Sleeps and How She Loves respectively, conveying the stories of third-wave feminism and female couples in Singapore. Candid and having no boundaries, you’ll be able to catch the artists in action during the launches.

The Singapore Food Festival is back, and you know that means you’re never leaving with your stomachs empty. Relatively new restaurants such as JAM at SIRI HOUSE and The Feather Blade will be keeping you well-fed, alongside established names like Meatsmith, WokinBurger, and more. Long story short, we’ll be low-key hoping that our waistline doesn’t expand at the end of it all.
Eat to your heart’s content from 12 July to 13 July 2019 5pm – 11pm, at The Promontory@Marina Bay. Visit the Facebook page here for more information.
