If you find yourself in Singapore this month, there are loads of fun-filled activities to keep you busy.
Bring the children to the world’s first Pusheen cafe
When: Until March
Where: Kumoya, 8 Jalan Klapa
This beloved chubby cat you probably know from using Facebook stickers is coming to town in the best way. Japanese cafe Kumoya will host a pop-up cafe dedicated to all things Pusheen for a limited time only – the interiors will be redecorated, too. Even if you are not a fan, we are sure you know a few children (and adults who are young at heart) who do, and in any case, there’s never been a better time to do this for the Instagram.
Celebrate Pongal harvest festival
When: January 15-18
Where: Little India
For a heart-warming burst of culture, stick around Little India over these dates to see how the Tamal community honours the Pongal harvest festival. Light displays will be a major part of the celebrations in addition to other events, performances and workshops.
Track BTS down
What: BTS World Tour: Love Yourself
When: January 19, 7pm
Where: National Stadium, 1 Stadium Dr
The bad news: if you haven’t secured tickets, the Singapore leg of Korean boy band BTS’ World Tour sold out long ago – to no one’s surprise. The good news: they will be in town. So put on your investigator caps and try to track the band members down (see if you can catch them at Changi Airport).

Where: Singapore’s Civic District

Neighbouring institutes National Gallery Singapore, The Arts House, Asian Civilisations Museum, the Esplanade Park, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall are all part of this festival.
More light shows
What: i Light Singapore
When: January 28-February 24, 7.30-11pm (Sun-Thu), 7.30pm-midnight (Fri-Sat)

’Tis the season for light shows, clearly. The iconic waterfront promenade will be transformed by this sustainable light art festival as part of Singapore’s bicentennial celebrations, so be sure to take your cameras.
