Unfortunately, there won’t be anything to do this April…

…April Fools! Of course there is.

This month is one with something for everyone! There’s a run for the fitness junkies, a pet fair for the animal lovers, and a whole lot of yummy food events for the rest of us who just love to eat.

Here’s a calendar of fun and exciting activities to fill your 1-15 April! We’re not pulling your leg when we say you shouldn’t miss them.

1. Teh Tarik Run

So you want to run, keep fit, and stay healthy. But you also can’t stay off good ol’ prata and teh tarik.

Well, Teh Tarik Run 2017 proves you can do both! At the same time, no less.

What’s best is you’ll get to down a tik gong (cup) of teh tarik at every 1km mark. In fact, no other kinds of fluids will be served at the event.

Let us excite you further with the grand finale–an actual Roti Prata party at the finish line! Indulge in a well-deserved meal without the guilt, knowing that you’ve worked it all off already.

Sound like your cup of tea? Come pull tea–not hamstrings–at your new favourite run!
