2020 has been a crazy curveball, but we are in the end game now – not only is it the long-awaited Christmas weekend, it is also the last weekend of the year. 

If you aren’t attending Christmas parties and are looking for something to do, we’ve got you covered!

Here are five things to do this weekend (Dec 24 to Dec 27):

1. Role play as a detective online

Ever experienced an online escape room? Murder at Mandai Camp: The Case Reopens is Asia’s first virtual horror-mystery escape room with live-action gameplay that takes place online from this week. 

Augmented with 360 degrees views and immersive surround sound, you get to solve the mystery and find out who the Mandai Camp murderer is. The film stars Benjamin Kheng and Erwin Shah Ismail. 

Standard ticket prices start from S$20, and you can purchase them here.

2. Go on a staycation with sea animals

Calling all Sanrio fans! In its fourth edition, Sentosa’s Island Lights will feature a total of seven Sanrio-themed installations such as Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, My Melody and Little Twin Stars. 

There is also an 8m-tall installation of colourful waterslides and a 12m feature panel along Siloso Beach. 

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, you are required to book a slot before heading down.

4. Visit a new shopping mall in the North
