Let’s be real — January felt like an eternity.

4. Nasi Lemak Run
We’ve definitely seen our fair share of bizarre races, but here’s a new Nasi Lemak Run which we can safely say we did not see coming.
In all seriousness, the Nasi Lemak Run will be held at MacRitchie Reservoir, from 7:30am onwards. There’ll be a total of three races, with the Normal Nasi Lemak (4km) and Upsized Nasi Lemak (8km) being options for adults.
Remember that you’ll be running for your love of the dish, which you will receive a packet of, at the end of your race.

6. Zero-Waste Latte Art Throwdown
Presenting Singapore’s first Zero-Waste latte art throw-down in collaboration with Oatly is Common Man Coffee Roasters, with a competition that uses the more sustainable option of Oat Milk to create drinks.
But instead of tipping the coffee down the sink (which usually happens at a throw-down), competitors will take their coffee to the bar, for it to be transformed into a cocktail or mocktail for them or their friends to enjoy.
It’ll be an entire event advocating for environmental awareness while having fun, so head down to find out more.
