Learn how to code while 'baking' a cake, or take a quick mental break with ambient noise.
We are left with approximately 39 more days till the end of the extended circuit breaker (CB) period, which will now end on Jun 1.
Got too much time on your hands? Here’s our curated list of delightfully addictive websites you can waste your time on. You might even learn some useful information along the way!
Code A Cake teaches you simple coding terms like sequencing and variables while you attempt to bake a cake.
The cute visuals are a delight to watch, and you might find yourself baking multiple cakes to explore the different settings.
Trivia website Neal.fun is designed for “people with too much time”, which sounds like the majority of us during this CB period.
Oddly fascinating, I know.
Miss the sound of the outdoors? Me too – I can’t even remember the last time I heard birds chirping from anywhere beyond my window. (Because I have been staying home like a good Singaporean, of course.)
Make a quick escape with ambient noise generator, A Soft Murmur. Create your own mix of ambient sounds like waves, rain and crickets, and wash all your worries away.
The good thing about staying home is being able to finally binge-watch the shows you’ve been dying to watch.
This nifty website, tiii.me, helps you plan your Netflix binge-watch schedule by calculating the total time needed to complete your selected TV shows.
You’d need approximately 21 hours and 39 minutes to finish all four seasons of Stranger Things, and four days, 12 hours and 12 minutes to clear all 10 seasons of Friends.
No pressure, I guess.
Brush up your Wikipedia search skills with The Wiki Game. In the single-player game, you need to navigate from a randomly selected article to the final target in the fewest clicks or within the shortest time.
Heads up – the game is not as easy as it sounds. I have tried it a few times and I still couldn’t reach the final article in time!
I don’t think I need to explain this one. It’s just too cute not to share!
Google’s Quick, Draw! will try to decipher your less-than-terrific doodles under 20 seconds, giving you an excuse to practise your finger doodling skills. Some even dubbed it as “playing Pictionary with a robot”.
This website will definitely test your patience. The two-minute timer starts as soon as you load the page, and you are instructed to do nothing more than to relax and watch the waves.
The timer resets once you move your mouse or keyboard. Are you able to make it till the end?
We hope that our list will help you waste the day away, albeit productively, as you await the end of the extended CB period. We can do this!
