Things have started to settle down after the new year festivities, and we're all back to the grind - for real this time. It's just as well that this month doesn't have any public holidays. Don't let it be all work no play, though - take some time to unwind during off days and weekends with these 17 new things to do in March 2022 in Singapore, including sakura-themed activities, a 4-storey Garden Oasis in the sky, and a free-entry exhibition full of whimsical installations.

Read on for things to do in March 2022 in Singapore!

#1: Visit the 4-storey free-entry Garden Oasis at new 51-storey skyscraper, CapitaSpring

CapitaSpring is the newest addition to the Raffles Place skyline, and this isn’t just any other skyscraper. This is a 51-storey mammoth that not only has a Sky Garden, but also a 4-storey Garden Oasis spanning across 4 floors of the building.

This mixed development is home to offices as well as service apartments, but it’s open to public access at no cost. Yes, you get to come here for a sky high pak tor session amidst greenery for absolutely free! There are even semi-private cushioned pods with charging points where you can get some work done, or simply relax while soaking in the views.

Other highlights include Latin-European restaurant Sol And Luna, which opens their doors as early as 8am so CBD office workers can grab a quick bite before heading to work. They’re open throughout the day, with different menus for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner.

#4: DIY your own tufted rug or mirror at Cutloop Studio

Rug tufting seems to be the new DIY home decor trend these days. While we previously featured Tuft Club, another of such studios you can consider is Cutloop Studio, located in a cosy heritage shophouse unit along Keong Saik.

The process seems simple enough - you simply trace out your design on a sheet, pick your colours, and start tufting using a handheld device - but be warned, it’s quite an arm workout! Nevertheless, the end result will be well worth it, and nothing beats the satisfaction of telling your friends, “Yup, I made it myself”.

If a rug might sound impractical for your home due to the upkeep required, you can opt to do a tufted mirror instead. Designs are entirely up to you to customise - those who are more ambitious can try doing cartoon characters!

Address: 14D Keong Saik Road, Level 3, Singapore S089121
Opening hours: Saturday & Sunday: 9.30am - 6.30pm (by appointment only)

#5: Enter a whimsical realm full of magic and animals at the National Gallery

Conversations with an Octopus - Children's Biennale at National Gallery SingaporePhoto from GirlStyle Singapore

Re-discover your sense of child-like wonder and curiosity with Conversations with an Octopus, a free-entry mini exhibition at National Gallery Singapore. Centred around The Girl with the Red Shorts and her friend, The Octopus, this whimsical pop-up tells a story of love and friendship through illustrations by local artist Sandra Lee.

If you grew up reading Dr Seuss books, you’ll love the similar playful quality these installations bring - with books hanging from the ceiling, an enchanted forest, and lots of animal friends by your side.

It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, though - despite a vibrant rainbow mural stretching across one wall. Some of the installations raise attention to the pertinent issue of global warming, with thought provoking questions such as, “When we throw something away, what does ‘away’ mean?”.

One of our favourite portions was the animated segment towards the end. We won’t give you any spoilers - you’ll have to head down yourself to enjoy the magic of the full experience!

While this installation is part of the Children’s Biennale 2021, it’s something that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. And don’t be fooled by the name of the event, for it’ll be ongoing for the rest of 2022.

Date: Until December 2022
Time: 10am - 7pm
Location: National Gallery Singapore

#6: Chill out at Tanjong Pagar’s newest pet-friendly urban playground

Given that it’s smack in the middle of the CBD, i.e. not the most kid-friendly of spaces, Tanjong Pagar seems like an unlikely place to open a playground. But this new open space at Discover Tanjong Pagar Community Green is not your typical play area with slides and swings in primary colours; Instead, you’ll find a couple of wooden structures that blend seamlessly into the urban environment, while creating room for imaginative play.

Of course, this eco-playground isn’t just for young kids, as adults are also more than welcome to let off some steam here. Even if you’re not one for climbing across undulating logs or running around, it’ll be nice parking your bum on one of the many seats to just chill out.

If your children are of another kind - the furry sort, we mean - then by all means, bring them along. This sprawling lawn was designed to be pet-friendly, and your doggo is sure to enjoy frolicking around here.

This garden city never ceases to surprise us with hidden spots that have been hidden in plain sight. Our latest find is a retro-esque pastel pink building that is Joo Chiat CC. Just a stone's throw from the famous Peranakan shophouses at Koon Seng, this community club boasting "Accidentally Wes Anderson" vibes is full of photo spots.

Other than its pastel facade, special architectural focal points here include its staircase with curved landing edges that look like mini balconies, and little circular "peepholes" in the walls.

You can quite literally paint your dessert and eat it too, with the all-new Macaron Art Jamming sessions by The Art Nooq, a local art jamming studio in a quiet corner of Chinatown.

Gardens by the Bay’s annual sakura display is returning yet again to the Flower Dome, much to the delight of Japan-deprived locals.

As with every year, there will be majestic red torii gates set against a backdrop of delicate pink and white cherry blossoms, bringing about that traditional Japanese charm. Visitors can also look forward to Japanese floral art and carp streamers adding on to the matsuri atmosphere.

Just about any hair salon offers scalp treatments, but Oscar Head Spa gives the pampering a finer touch by letting you doll up in a Korean hanbok right after - complete with complimentary hairstyling. A professional scalp scanner will first be used to determine the condition of your scalp, before you sit back and relax with a scalp massage, gua sha, deep cleansing, detoxification, and more in this all-rounded experience.

Adding on to the royal treatment is a free mini afternoon tea set, which you can enjoy on the traditional hanok-style floor seating by the window that shows off an expansive view of the Marina Bay skyline.

The Green Crab mural at Singapore Art MuseumPhoto from Singapore Art Museum

The hoardings at Singapore Art Museum (SAM) Bras Basah have since shed their mahjong mural, but in its place comes another equally eye-catching piece. Titled The Green Crab: A Diagram of Auspicious Spatial Organization, this newly-commissioned mural explores the idea of “hidden qi” flowing through Singapore’s urban landscape, allowing you to view the city map in a different light through symbols, myths, and legends.

Even if you don’t fully understand what the artwork is meant to portray, it’s still worth stopping by to admire its intricacies if you’re somewhere nearby in the area. Take an OOTD shot against the vibrant backdrop while you’re at it!

Date: Until 28 August 2022

It looks like the boys are back! Okay, not to burst your bubble, but Korean boyband BTS will not in fact be touching down on our shores - yet. But their “Permission To Dance On Stage” concert will be streamed live in selected Golden Village cinemas this March so that the Singaporean ARMY can witness the spectacle on the big screen as the actual show goes on in Seoul!
