broke and still have a life (V)

It’s been a while, I am too broke to even write something here. Ok, lousy joke. I hope you found something you liked from my recommendations in my earlier posts.

For the month of October, there is a new source of programmes at no charge yet I can guarantee the quality of their line-ups. And then there is our bi-monthly Singapore Really Really Free Market that’s going stronger by the session.

1. WASABI – The Spirit of Japan: The Sound of Traditional Instruments

I can’t remember how I got to know about the Japan Creative Centre and its wide array of programmes, ranging from film screening and live performances to workshops and art exhibitions, but I certainly appreciate their generous sharing of entertainment and willingness in educating the public about Japanese culture and other aspects.


The one-night-only music concert is free and e-mail registration is required. Take note that they are in the midst of switching the registration system, so be a little more patient after writing to them following the instructions stated in the event page.

Date/Time: 22nd October 2013, Tuesday, 8pm

Venue: Genexis Theatre, Fusionopolis, 1 Fusionopolis Way, Singapore 138632 (just above One-North MRT station)

If you are unable to get a place at the full concert, you may catch WASABI at Esplanade, where they will perform for half an hour each of the two sessions.

Date/Time: 21st October 2013, Monday, 7.15pm and 8.15pm

Venue: Esplanade Concourse, 1 Esplanade Drive, Singapore 038981

2.  Singapore Really Really Free Market (SRRFM)

Please visit this page for updates 🙂

Original post:

blog 041212_1Without a permanent location, this event is for everyone to give and take old or new items as well as to provide and receive services for free. It is run by Post-Museum, an independent cultural and social space in Singapore which aims to encourage and support a thinking and pro-active community.

So come to the next SRRFM to experience resources sharing, but bear in mind that this is not a place for us to dump thrash or hoard items that we don’t need. The services I have seen at the numerous SRRFM that I attended include shoulder/back massage, simple yoga, story-telling, guitar performance, Tarot card reading and many more!

Date/Time: 13th October 2013, Sunday, 2-7pm

Venue: The Eurasian Association, 139 Ceylon Road, Singapore 429744 (the nearest MRT station is Dakota)

Look here for details on this session, you can also join the two free guided tours (maximum 20 people – first-come-first-served) at 3.30pm and 5pm. The tour will take you through the three galleries in the Eurasian Community House!
