The Cheat Sheet: Street style trends, Chinese tea houses, and new dishes to try

We may be done and dusted with the F1 festivities, but there’s still a lot to do this weekend. For starters, Japanese pop-rock band Do As Infinity will be here tomorrow at the Capitol Theatre for their first-ever Singapore concert. Homegrown musicians such as Disco Hue and Jasmine Sokko will also get their chance to shine on Saturday, with the inaugural Local Motion music festival taking place at Fort Canning Park. The event focuses on local music and also features other activities such as a live art demonstration.

If you’re more of an art buff, be sure to stop by Gillman Barracks’ Art After Dark, the cultural enclave’s annual open house extravaganza featuring art installations, exhibitions, live music performances, and F&B pop-up stalls. Held in conjunction with Gillman Barracks’ fifth anniversary, it launches tonight across the precinct.

Read on in this week’s edition of The Cheat Sheet for more ideas on what to do this weekend.
