HAPPENINGS SINGAPORE CELEBRATING INDIAN ARTS For the 16th year running, the best Indian artists and performers in Singapore and the region will gather on stage to perform at the Kalaa Utsavam – Indian Festival of Arts. Held at the Esplanade, the festival coincides with the annual Deepavali celebrations also known as the Festival of Lights. Despite its humble beginnings in 2002, the Kalaa Utsavam has expanded beyond its three-day festival format and now takes place across ten days. Designed and curated to showcase the best of Indian arts, the event presents an extensive programme made up of classical as well as contemporary performances across theatre, music and dance. Scheduled to perform this year include Apsaras Arts, Sharul Channa, Raka Maitra and Mohamed Noor from Singapore who will be joined by renowned Indian artists such as Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Daya Shankar, as well as new upcoming artists like flautist B Vijayagopal and progressive rock band Agam. 17-26 November. SPOTLIGHT Vintage Diner With a range of classic rides of both the two and four-wheeled variety, Kombi Rocks in Serangoon has been a gathering space for motorheads and fans of classic automobiles in Singapore. The quirky and throwback feel of the place is indeed charming, which is why it’s growing as a prominent venue for both events as well as weddings. The diner preserves the cuisine that was served in the original restaurant which occupied the premises in the 1970s. As such the menu boasts a number of Teochew-Thai fusion dishes alongside hearty American desserts. Complimenting their F&B offerings is also an extensive merchandise area with model cars as well as an in-house barbershop, aptly named Autocutt. Nevertheless, it is still the cars that are the stars here, especially the vintage Volkswagen Kombi van, which the outlet is named after. Popular with the Instagram crowd, Kombi Rocks also rents out their vintage collection of cars and bikes for events and for outdoor catering as well. For a true experience, opt for the Ride n Dine, which consists of a chauffeur-driven joyride in 1960s Kombi and a delectable 4-course meal at the restaurant. Open daily, 11am-12pm, 66 Yio Chu Kang Rd., 116
