Eating, shopping, pampering, grooving – here’s what the Teenage team will be up to this weekend.
ARISSA HA, DEPUTY EDITOR
If you didn’t get a chance to take D&T in school, don’t fret. You can always take up a woodworking course to find out what you’ve been missing out. The General Co is holding a woodworking workshop this coming Sunday, and you can learn about the different types of wood, how to operate a table saw and sanding. You’ll even get to make and bring home your own personalised wooden tool caddy at the end of the workshop.
VISIT: Etude House VivoCity
Etude House will be opening their newest branch in VivoCity’s spanking new basement. The new store will feature the first ever nail parlour, where customers can pamper themselves with a manicure or pedicure using their favourite Etude House products. There’s also a Sweet Catcher Machine, which allows customers a chance to win a mystery prize. Head down to Etude House VivoCity this weekend to win an array of cool prizes, including movie passes and dining vouchers.
Etude House’s newest branch is located in VivoCity,#B1-03.
USE: Original & Mineral Seven Day Moisture Miracle Masque
I just had my hair dyed pink last weekend. After several rounds of bleaching, blowdrying and colouring, my tresses are ready to call it quits. Thankfully, the Original & Mineral Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque ($50) managed to breath new life into my hair; repairing the damages and reducing the frizz for healthier-looking hair.

WATCH: Mad Max: Fury Road
Judging from the action packed trailer, Mad Max will be quite a ride! Though the movie is about “Mad” Max Rockantansky, we would like to think that Charlize Theron’s role as the Imperator Furiosa is the main focus of the film. Plus Nicholas Hoult being part of the main cast as Nux (one of the War Boys) is why we should totally catch the movie as well! What is this whole chase about and who’s side is Nicholas Hoult on? We want to find out!
VISIT: Universal Studios Singapore
Time to head down to USS before it gets super packed over the June Holidays. Though the roller coasters are not available anymore (boo!), there’s a new ride in town and if you didn’t know about it, where have you been? It’s the world’s first Puss in Boots‘ Giant Journey suspended coaster! There is a special promotion going on until 26th May which celebrates the launch of the new ride so go on and book your tickets now!
More details here.
EAT: New Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh
I’ve always preferred the herbal kind of Bak Kut Teh as compared to the peppery type and the New Soon Huat BKT is one you must try! Though they do have the dry version, I still prefer this cause who eats BKT without soup? I especially love the tau kee (bean curd skin) with enoki mushrooms, it’s crispy and so savoury at the same time. I can totally devour one pot of that alone with rice.
New Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh is located at 949 Upper Serangoon Road Singapore 534713

LISTEN: ‘Take Heart’ – The Sam Willows
The Sam Willows have been on my radar ever since we featured Benjamin Kheng (1/4 of The Sam Willows) in August 2014 – yay for local pride! This weekend, I’ll be listening to their latest lead single ‘Take Heart’ off their upcoming still-unnamed debut album on repeat – they sang it during their opening act for The Script, and I love the way their voices blend together in their unique sound. We interviewed The Sam Willows recently, so keep an eye out for that too!
‘Take Heart’ is available on iTunes and all digital music stores.
USE: SEED x heroine make 1 day UV contact lenses
I’ve always been a monthly-lens kinda girl, but I’ll use dailies whenever I know I’ll be too lazy for proper contact lens care. Also, this weekend is gearing up to be super busy and wonky contact lenses/dry eyes aren’t something I’d want to worry about, especially being on-the-go. I’m going to try out SEED x heroine make 1 day UV lenses which promise big-eye cosmetic effects while giving all day comfort.
SEED x heroine make 1 day UV lenses comes in 30 lenses per box for $62, available at all leading premium optical stores.

LISTEN: ODD – SHINee
SHINee’s back, you guys! It feels like forever since we’ve last seen the fivesome as a whole, but the boys are f-i-n-a-l-l-y making a comeback. If there’s anything SM does right, it’s how they craft their groups’ brilliant concept photos. In this case, ODD is masked as a psychedelic, borderline f(x)-esque record that’s perhaps a lil’ too hipster for K-pop. SHINee may be known for their addictive tunes (think ‘Ring Ding Dong’ and ‘Sherlock’), but it’s really their atmospheric mix of R&B numbers like ‘Odd Eye’ and ‘View’ that creates the magic in this album.
ATTEND: Music Matters Live 2015
Back for the fifth year in a row, this four-day mega music festival will be bringing over a gene pool of artistes from 25 countries including the likes of Aussie’s Dru Chen, Canada’s Time Giant, South Korea’s Sonamoo. You’ll also get to see our very own Shiggashay, Gentle Bones, Jaime Wong and more on stage. They’ll be playing at various venues around Clarke Quay, so catch ‘em if you can. Best of all, it’s completely free of charge! Visit the official website for the full schedule and artiste line-up.
Music Matters Live 2015 will be held on 20-24 May, at 3 River Valley Road, Singapore, 179024.
EAT: Snowy Village
Credit: Daniel Food Diary
Possibly the coolest (pun intended) bingsu cafe that has ever existed on our shores, Snowy Village is housed within a container-designed exhibition space which showcases local photography and artworks. Not only that, the owners also repurposed oil drums into quirky dining tables for the alfresco area. Definitely worth the visit if you’re into the novelty factor! The menu contains the usual suspects of bingsus, toasts, waffles and coffee, but it still offers a pretty decent variety for an up-and-coming cafe.
Snowy Village is located at 120A Prinsep Street, Singapore 187937.
