What to do this weekend if you didn’t get your Avengers Endgame tickets

If you didn’t manage to get your hands on those Endgame tickets, your weekend can still be amazing! Here at Tueetor, we decided to help you by compiling a list of events and activities to keep you occupied all weekend. There are actually more things to do in Singapore than simply watching movies and going to the mall. Check out these 13 things to do this weekend! (And no, Netflix and Changi Jewel aren’t on this list.)
