5 Things To Do In Singapore This Week: 3rd to 9th December 2018

We love G&Ts and we cannot lie. The star event this week has to be the finale of Gin Jubilee 2018 and a farm to table dinner at Humpback in honour of the occasion. Don’t worry though, for low or no ABV fun, there’s an intimate exhibition at Telok Ayer Arts Club and DIY Christmas gifts at Summerhouse’s Wildseed Festive Market.

An experience for the daring and curious, this particular exhibition is filled with drawings, sculptures and photography on the themes of love and intimacy at Telok Ayer Arts Club. Engage with the artists – Megan Miao, Susie Wong and Zulkhairi Zulkiflee – during a DIY Sex Toy workshop and artist discussions to find out what is it that creates the cultural codes of our sexuality, sensuality and resulting pitfalls of our desires.

Tell Me How They Kiss You, Tell Me How You Kiss will be happening from 3rd Dec 2018 — 12 Jan 2019, Monday — Sunday, 11am — 11pm at Telok Ayer Arts Club, 2 McCallum Street, Singapore 069043. Entrance is free.
