MARCH:

“It’s Not Romeo & Juliet” production
Date: March 15 – 17 (Friday – Sunday)
Time: March 15, 8pm; March 16, 3pm & 8pm; March 17, 3pm 
Venue: Marine Parade Community Club Theatrette
Fee: $25 (for seniors), $28 (standard)

Not the same as old Romeo and Juliet, this production focuses on Lomeo and Juliat – elderly parents from the feuding Tay and Chew families. There is big money to be made for the Chews from a condo en bloc sale, but the Tays are not standing for it. Nonetheless, it is love at first sight for the two older and wiser couple. If love is no respecter of age, can Lomeo and Juliat have their happily ever after?

Neck and back pain is a common health problem in Singapore. Most people suffer from non-specific neck and back pain where no serious underlying pathology can be identified. The prognosis and recovery of neck and back pain differ widely among individuals but largely depends on risk factors such as age, gender, occupation, physical and mental stress, previous injury, posture, and sedentary lifestyle. Find out how TCM can complement the treatment of neck and back problems through acupuncture, cupping, acupressure and exercises.
