Now that the festive season is officially over and the next Public holiday is seemingly far away, there seems to be nothing too exciting coming up. So we dug up some pretty solid gems on the internet of the different activities you can do to Appreciate, Shop, Rejoice and Exercise this February

Appreciate: State of motion

Ever wondered what it was like to see Singaporeans through the eyes of a foreigner back in the day? Or even just wonder what Singapore was like in the early 1990s? State of Motion film screenings is here to satisfy that curiosity.

The films presented in this series are specially picked out from the Singapore film archives, featuring movies in the 1970s and 80s. Given the cultural and historical differences back then, expect a wholly eye-opening experience.

One of the movies that caught my eye personally was Ricochet, featuring David Bowie and his journey in Southeast Asia during his tour. In his trip to Singapore, he explored the city and soaked up the seemingly alien culture with contradictions of local interactions that almost resulted in the cancellation of his concert.

These films are mostly screened this week so register soon!

When: 2 Feb – 5 Feb
Where: National Library Singapore (Bugis)

SHOP: Singapore Really Really Free Market (SRRFM) & Swapaholic

Just like the title of the event, this flea market is “really really free”.  Part of the Earthfest, SRRFM is a temporary market based on the concept of giving and sharing.

If you are interested, simply put a notice on their Facebook wall to let them know what item you are bringing so they can estimate the number of mats they require.

Another event that is very similar to SRRFM that’s happening during Earthfest is Swapaholic

Bring your clothing items down on the few collection days before the event and pay a fee of $10/ $18 with lunch from HIC Juice and VeganBurg. With the coupon received during the collection period, you can now get ready to make your way down to Marina Bay on 12 February to “swap till you drop”! And of course, remember to bring your own bags.

When: 12 Feb

Rejoice: Holi 2017 — the Festival of Colour or Festival of Sharing Love

Holi is a Hindu spring festival in India and Nepal and it looks a lot like Colour Run, but without the “Run” and a lot more culture. It originated as an ancient Hindu festival and became a popular event in South Asia and increasingly around the world.

EXERCISE: Viper Challenge 2017

I’m sure most of us have watched those reality shows with humans scaling across rocky platforms and jumping across various vertical elements to reach the final glorious button. If you want a taste of that, Viper Challenge might be just for you.

Viper Challenge is Asia largest obstacle running course that will push you to the limits and build stronger bonds with your teammates. You can also run alone, but that really wouldn’t be as fun. It is a 10km route with 15 man-made obstacles that will keep your heart racing with a constant adrenaline rush.
