What to do during the weekends? How about getting close to nature. If you love nature, check out the Parks Festival 2011 at http://www.nparks.gov.sg/parksfest. No, this is not self-promotion. I don’t work there :p
According to the website, there are 300 parks in Singapore. Amazing for such a tiny island.
