The year-end holidays are now in full swing and if you’re feeling a little bored, don’t worry! 

It’s two more weeks to the end of the year, but there are still plenty of fun things you can do, whether it’s online or offline. 

Here are five things to do this weekend:

1. Shop for last-minute Christmas gifts with 12.12 sales



You might have seen this Phua Chu Kang advertisement everywhere by now, but hey, it’s a good reminder that the last day of the 12.12 sales are happening this weekend! And just in time for Christmas too. 

Don’t miss out on Shopee’s exclusive birthday deals with products ranging from gadgets like the new iPhone 12 max and Airpods Pro to facial products and household appliances. Shop here now. 

2. Update your Instagram with some amazing photos



If you feel overwhelmed by Christmas events, how about taking a break and visit an art installation at Downtown East?

The best part? You get to snap some amazing photos for the ‘Gram. Lite On! consist of works by local artists like Speak Cryptic, Bod, Space Objekt and Shophouse & Co. The works take inspiration from imagined landscapes, existing spaces and everyday objects. 

Check out the art installation at Downtown East, 1 Pasir Ris Close, Singapore 519599.

3. Relive your childhood at the new Timezone



It is hard to find arcades in Singapore these days, so you’d be glad to know that Timezone Singapore opened their largest outlet at Westgate last week. 

The arcade spans 18,000 sq ft and features over 200 of the latest arcade games and attractions in three specific zones — Carnival, Music, and Racing. 

It will also house themed party rooms with both Disney and Mario Bros having dedicated walls of merchandise. For more information, click here

4. Scream for ice cream

Ice cream lovers will definitely know about this place. Located just opposite the National Library, Tom’s Palette is known to serve some exotic flavours, such as the Chee Cheong Fun ice cream.

On Sunday, the ice cream joint will be serving a new flavour: the Honey Orchid Dancong Oolong. They also released the Soya Bean Dough Fritters flavour on Friday.

If you’re one for unique flavoured ice cream, you wouldn’t want to miss the weekend offerings from Tom’s Palette! The shop is located at 51 Middle Rd, #01-01, Singapore 188959.

5. Watch some Japanese films



This year’s Japanese Film Festival is a hybrid edition with both physical and virtual screenings. 

For the virtual portion, there will be online Q&As to find out more about Japanese culture. Renpei Tsukamoto and Kyohei Fujimura are part of the list of guest invitees. 

The films shown include 12 suicidal teens, Blue Hour and Children of the Sea. For more information, click here
