Those passionate about dance and ballet are in for a treat this weekend, with the annual Esplanade Da:ns Festival that kicks off tonight. The 10-day presentation spans dance showcases, talks and masterclasses, and features highlights such as an introductory course in Thai khon (a form of dance and drama originating from Thailand) and a performance by famed choreographer Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project.

Another must-see event in the coming days is the WTA Finals, which launches on 22 October and sees tennis superstars the likes of Simona Halep and Venus Williams battling it out on the court. There’s even non-sport-related entertainment in the form of ’90s boy band Backstreet Boys’ concert, held tomorrow in conjunction with the tennis tournament. The show takes place at the National Stadium and is completely sold out, so we’re envious if you managed to snag tickets.

The Macallan Edition No. 3.

The Macallan Singapore took us on a sensory adventure for the launch of its new Edition No. 3 whisky, where the night culminated in a tasting of the new spirit, made in collaboration with master perfumer, Roja Dove. The enticing, light gold liquor was a medley of fresh, bright citrus, vanilla, spice, bitter orange and ripe apple. Truly remarkable.
