Whether you’re slogging hard in school or work, it’s always important to remember to take breaks. 

And the weekend represents the best time to unwind and relax before the new week starts. 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Apr 16 to 18):

1. Eat some chilli crab

Celebrity-owned online F&B business, Sibay Shiok, has added an interesting item onto its menu – Chilli Crab with yuzu and pomelo pulp. 

While it may sound like a weird combination, the Japanese yuzu adds sweetness to the spicy dish while the pomelo pulp helps bring out the crab’s freshness. 

You can choose from two sets: 800 grams (S$118) or 1500 grams (S$168). Each set includes two loaves of baked Italian ciabatta bread. 

Sibay Shiok is a collaboration between Mediacorp actors Terence Cao and Zhang Yaodong. Find out more here.

2. Admire some art

Titled Rewritten: The World Ahead of Us, the art showcase is spread across eight nature parks from Punggol to Jurong. These include BOND by Jerome Ng Xin Hao and Zed Haan, as well as [ ] with Dual Possibilities by Vertical Submarine. 

The coast-to-coast trail spans across the island, linking up nature areas and park connectors, including Jurong Lake Gardens and the new Lornie Nature Corridor.

In a bid to ease COVID-19 restrictions, cycling and kayaking tours will now be allowed to expand their capacity to 50 participants from this weekend. 

This is up from the current maximum group size of 20. However, participants still have to be split into sub-groups of eight without intermingling with other groups.

So go gather your friends and try out some of these kayaking and cycling tours!
