Rise and shine, it’s the weekend!
Stuff Weekend
 
Two sweet days of doing nothing. That is what you probably thought until you read our suggestions for the weekend.

Check this out now: Paws on the Beach

Stuff Weekend

Hit Tanjong Beach Club for its first ever adoption drive. Held in conjunction with Animal Lovers League, head to Sentosa to find your furry match. Warning: be prepared for many heart-melting moments as volunteers will be on site with many dogs seeking homes from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, 27 September. First 100 attendees will also receive a Pet Lovers Centre goodie bag.

Watch this now: The Immigrant

Nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, the American drama boasts the star-studded likes of Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner, and Marion Cotillard. The film follows the life of a Polish immigrant and her sister when they arrive in New York to seek a new start, but end up in some less than desirable situations, totally the opposite of what they set out to find.

Hear this now: Crush Songs by Karen O

The eccentric frontwoman of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fronts her own debut album this time. It’s about time given that she’s been embarking on several solo projects which have classed her as a solo artist in her own right. The Moon Song in Her? That’s all Karen O. She has said that her inspiration for the album came from her former crushes. Don’t worry, you won’t be getting the whiny Taylor Swift treatment from her.

Watch this now: The Longest Week

Formerly rich and without a purpose in life, Conrad Valmont is in for the rudest shock of his life when he ends up broke, without a home, and as the cherry on the cake - in love. Can’t wait to see how this turns out, although you might already have a vague idea. Stars Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman, and Billy Crudup.

Check this out now: Wet N’ Wild Run

A wet obstacle run at the beach? We’re in! This race, something you might have seen in Japanese game shows, spans over five kilometres. Some of the obstacles include a four-storey high inflatable slide, a rope bridge, and a sprint section in which you’ll get attacked with soapy water. Best of all, it’s not even timed so take your time to really have fun. Starts from 9am till late on Saturday, 27 September.
