It has been exactly a year since Singapore went into circuit breaker. As we reflect back on how far we’ve progressed and battled COVID-19 together as a nation, let’s also take some time to unwind and have some fun.

Here are five things to do this weekend (Apr 9-11):

1. Feast on an outdoor barbecue

Night owls now have a new spot for dinner or supper until 3am! 

Singapore will be opening its very own night market, Shiok Shiok Night Market, from this weekend.
