Watch: the wandering earth on Netflix
Being China’s second highest grossing film of all time, we think you’ll love this if you liked Interstellar and The Martian.
The Wandering Earth tells the story of a distant future in which the sun expands into a red giant that threatens to devour Earth.
How do humans try to save the planet? By building stellar engines to propel Earth out of the solar system in a 2,500 year-long journey, with new enemies and dangers that may jeopardise humanity’s survival.
If you’re a sci-fi lover, you won’t be disappointed with its out-of-the-world theatrics.
Drink: Avenue Singapore
Speakeasy culture gets a wholesome revival with the new Avenue Singapore at Marina Bay Sands.
It has eye-catching elements like vintage pinball machines and mini bowling alleys, coupled with plush decor that lend to its elegant and immersive ambience.
For drinks, relish in the latest in craft cocktail technology and bespoke menu offerings.
This swanky new hangout will be your alternative to crowded lobby lounges and busy clubs — it’s time to get your proverbial drink on.
Avenue Singapore opens on 23 May at Marina Bay Sands. It is accessible via its Level 1 entrance, every Wednesday to Friday from 7pm, and every Saturday from 9pm.
Play: Ultra Singapore
Now in its fourth year running, Ultra Singapore has become a hub for the biggest hits in EDM, deep house and techno.
Last year’s festival was topped with headliners like Afrojack, DJ Snake and Romero. This year, the lineup doesn’t disappoint with prominent DJs like Martin Garrix and Skrillex.
Besides these exciting headliners, Ultra’s Resistance Stage will be featuring new tunes from the underground dance genre, like the funky minimalism of Jamie Jones and Eats Everything’s trippy remixing.
So if your clubbing doesn’t give you the kick, it’s time to dance your socks off at the biggest rave of the year.

Eat: The Dragon Chamber restaurant
A speakeasy restaurant and bar — you don’t see a lot of offerings like The Dragon Chamber.
Hidden behind a Circular Road kopitiam, it reinvents traditional Chinese cuisine with adventurous dishes like Dragon Mountain — a trove of fried lobsters tossed with crispy garlic, crushed fermented soybeans, chilli and Sichuan peppercorns.
Stick to returning favourites like the Wagyu Truffle Beef Hor Fun, or try D*** Soup. Yes, really — crocodile penis in a chicken- and pork-based soup, double-boiled for six hours.
If you stay for drinks, try the Crazy for Coconuts and Mojito Twist — this bar gives your classic concoctions an oriental twist with ingredients like gula melaka and Five Spice powders.
Make your reservation with Chope here.
