We’ve curated a list of 10 events in 10 different genres for you to choose from. Hohoho, happy picking!

Cooking
Draw out the inner chef and learn to cook Hainanese chicken rice in full force amongst other classic Hainanese dishes at the “Art of Hainanese Cooking”. Even if it might be too late to display one’s new-found culinary skills at a Christmas gathering, it could well prepare your friend for a New Year or Chinese New Year gathering.

Theatre
The Necessary Stage, a local theatre company with more than a decade’s track record, is back to intrigue audiences with “Poor Thing” – a unique and interesting production involving social media interaction and grapples with the issue of road rage amongst Singaporeans. The acting itself is enough to blow anyone away!

Music
A music festival unlike any other, Playfreely+ provides a platform for musical conversations, collaborations and compositions. Happening over three days, it’ll be one not to miss to get a lowdown into the indie music scene with local and international musicians, and better yet, be a part of it.

Party
La Vita Alta: Shine Bright Like a Diamond” – An exclusive bi-monthly high society day party luncheon all about exquisite dining, beautiful people, amazing energy and high fashion.

DIY
Create your own industrial style table lamp made out of copper, pipes and wood at “Make your own Lamp”! This is one for the vintage lovers and crafty fingers.

Dating
Do you have single friends whom are interested in meeting with other singles over a scrumptious meal in a comfortable setting, and to top it off, for a social cause? “Dinner with a heart – Professor Brawn Cafe” provides exactly that. The cafe purposefully employs people with special needs (primarily autism), reflecting the restaurant owner’s personal story and paternal instincts.

Photography
Know of friends who’s aspiring to be the next Steve McCurry? The “Practical (Basic) Photography” workshop will make the perfect step-up and present for the budding photographer.

Business
Not the typical business meet-up, at the “S{W}B Canvas & Cocktail Night”, female entrepreneurs mingle, relax, and allow their creative juices to flow onto canvases as they sip over cocktails and chat over finger food.

Film
Be inspired by independent filmmakers and thespians Wong Fu Productions in an intimate live question and answer with a VIP meet and greet session at the cosy venue, Lowercase. With over 2 million YouTube subscribers, we’re sure there’s a fan amongst one of your friends you could get tickets for.

Charity / Social Good
In the spirit of Christmas and giving, how about sign you and your friend up to sponsor a meal and be involved in a morning of festive activities with the elderly folks at the AWWA Community Home for Senior Citizens? Spread the joyful cheer, begin by clicking here!
