April is here and what better way to start it then with a long weekend, thanks to Good Friday! 

Whether it is getting a dip in the pool or going karting at Singapore’s first indoor karting circuit, you’ll definitely have lots of fun! Here are five things to do this weekend (Apr 2 to Apr 4): 

1. Have a splashing fun time!



While we can’t travel to Thailand for its Songkran Water Festival just yet, we can experience it right here in Singapore! 

For the month of April, Wild Wild Wet (WWW) will be transforming the waterpark into the Thai-themed attraction. 

Highlights include daily water gun battles as well as spinning targets at the Shiok River. There will also be a giant super soaker and an actual tuk-tuk installed. 

Weekday passes are at S$20 each and you can book your tickets online here

2. Have fun at Singapore’s tallest outdoor play area



Coastal PlayGrove, which opened last weekend, is the newest attraction in town. It takes over the former Big Splash site at East Coast Park which was closed for redevelopment in 2017. 

The attraction is a 4.5-hectare space with several play areas, including a 16-metres high Play Tower with two tube slides. There is also a water play area and nature playgarden. 

If you’re more of a foodie, you’ll be pleased to know that there is also a new multi-concept food outlet Food Splash as well as other F&B outlets like OldTown White Coffee and Burger King.

3. Go Karting



Starting Apr 2, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) will be transforming its East Carpark (Orange Zone) into Singapore’s first indoor karting circuit. The circuit covers a total distance of 550 metres and consists of 23 corners. 

Two packages are available: 

  • Novice (25 km/h): S$18 nett (RWS members), S$28 nett (public)
  • Advanced (40 km/h): S$25 nett (RWS members), S$35 nett (public)

The karting circuit is open daily from 10am to 10pm until Jun 30. You can book a slot by emailing or calling +65 6252 0777.

4. Eat some chicken



Ten pieces of fried chicken for S$10? Yes, you read that right! 

Popular fast-food chain KFC is running this limited time promotion deal for a meal bundle which includes four pieces of chicken and six pieces of Hot & Crispy tenders. This equates to a 56 per cent discount, although the offer is limited to one set per transaction. 

You can get the deal via KFC delivery, dine-in or takeaway at all KFC outlets, except the outlets at Singapore Polytechnic and Singapore Zoo.

5. Try Old Chang Kee’s Blue Pea Nasi Lemak'O



As part of the Hari Raya Puasa celebrations next month, Old Chang Kee is launching the Blue Pea Nasi Lemak’O from this weekend. 

It contains Blue Pea Nasi Lemak rice, peanuts, ikan bilis, Masala chicken, sliced egg and sambal chilli in crispy epok epok skin. 

The Blue Pea Nasi Lemak’O will be available until May 31 at all Old Chang Kee stores and  delivery via GrabFood, FoodPanda and Deliveroo. The Blue Pea Nasi Lemak’O costs $2 each, or $3.60 for two.
