If you're looking for something to do on Saturday…

If I was going to be here in Singapore this Saturday, I'd totally check out the screening of Unfolding Florence: The Many Lives of Florence Broadhurst (last item), part of the Singapore International Film Festival that runs through April 30th. Broadhurst was an eccentric world traveler who eventually made her name in design for her amazing graphic prints for textiles and wallpaper. (Here's a full bio, if you're interested.) The film got good reviews and – especially now that Broadhurst's designs are back in style (thanks in part to a buzzed-about new book on her) – it's probably worth your Saturday afternoon.
Here's just a few snippets of her amazing designs; Print & Pattern has more.
