Well, that was one heck of a weekend. Whether you're still trying to get over the crazy double party at the Bandwagon Riverboat, Ed Sheeran's amazing performance or the Singapore Writers Festival's hilarious closing debate, this coming week has it all cut out for you. Start the week off with a seemingly French pop-up over at Open Farm Community, try out a new workout on water at ParkRoyal on Beach Road mid-week and be sure to head to Temple Cellars' The Alt Market to kick off your weekend.

Open Farm Community

FOOD
A trio of French chefs are taking over Open Farm Community's kitchen where they'll be using ingredients from local farms and putting their French touch on all 12 small and sharing plates. There's even an omakase "feed me" menu available. Nov 13-Dec 3

CONVENTION
If you’ve always wanted to try the affordably priced products on Qoo10 (but feared they were too cheap to be true), now’s your chance to cast all apprehension aside.

EXHIBITION
The Substation asks all the tough questions with Discipline The City, a three-act exhibition exploring the politics of space, control and access in Singapore, through a series of experiential installations from local and international artists.
