Get the lowdown on the most incredible things to do this weekend in Singapore!
With entertainment venues like bars and clubs closed till the end of April ‘cos of the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing is all everyone’s talking about. Here at Honeycombers, we’ve scratched our heads over this question: “What fun things can we do at home?” So as promised, we’re here to provide #goodvibesonly with our first stay home edition of our weekend guide. Enjoy!
Get lost in a good book
Bibliophiles need no convincing but for those looking to pick up a novel, this is the time to do it. Need some inspiration? Check out our book club. This month, we’re showing lots of love to local literature!
Get your dose of arts and culture online
Culture vultures, instead of flocking to the next exhibition, check out Esplanade Offstage. The site has a slew of articles to read, podcasts to listen to, and art performances to watch. Our recommendations include the video highlight of A Turntable-Orchestra Programme and the audio series Making A Scene, which explores the art scene with featured guests like Sharon Au and Nelson Chia.
It’s a whole new (virtual) world
Get your favourite snack in hand? Get comfy on your couch or bed and explore iconic destinations and museums through your screen. Don’t know where to start your expedition? Check out our guide to the world’s best virtual tours.
Support local F&B businesses
Forget about the usual fast food delivery. We’ve put together a list of choice restaurants that deliver top-notch meals right at your doorstep. We’re talking about Park Bench Deli’s mouthwatering sandwiches, Butcher Boy’s diet-busting Sunday Roast and Violet Oon’s lip-smacking Peranakan fare. You’ll be supporting local while keeping your hunger pangs at bay.
The fault is in the stars
For the astrologically inclined and Mercury-in-retrograde believers, take a breather from the chaos that is happening right now and explore the Milky Way. Nope, nobody is asking you to head outside and gaze at the skies. Simply head to NASA’s website and check out the extensive collection of images and videos.
Learning never stops
Thanks to Ted-Ed, we can learn something new every day. From answering Google-worthy questions to covering history lessons to debunking myths and legends, there are over 1,000 videos to choose from. Plus, each video is only about five minutes. Yes, we know you’ve got a short attention span.
Stellar couch entertainment
Binge-watching TV shows is an extreme sport. Got what it takes? Flex your skills with our binge-watch list! We’ve got popular K-dramas, award-winning series and movies fresh out of the (temporarily closed) theatres. Oh, and the new season of Westworld, which showcases our sleek city, is out too!
Let’s get physical
Stay in the pink of health during these trying times. While you can’t hit the gym, you can still keep your body tight through exercise inspiration from workout apps. With low-impact cardio and calming yoga sessions, you’ll soon realise your home can be a mini fitness studio too!
