December is upon us and with a crazy year like 2020 coming to an end, we should happily spend this year-end festive season with our family and friends. 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Dec 4 to Dec 6):

1. Get lost in a Christmas Wonderland

The most wonderful time of the year is here! Christmas Wonderland is back with its seventh edition and will feature specially curated stunning light installations in brand new designs at Gardens by the Bay in the Walk of Lights. 

Tickets are priced at $5 per pax. This year, there is also an online digital wonderland where you can play interactive games, watch festive performances and go shopping from the comfort of your home. Find out more here.

2. Fill your tummies

Chinese New Year might still be two months away, but that doesn’t mean you should not hit the streets of Chinatown. 

The Chinatown Food Street has finally reopened, with six new steamboat and BBQ ala carte buffet concepts amongst 17 reopened stalls. 

Foodies can get excited to fill up their tummies with the likes of Sichuan wonton, poached Hainanese chicken and Korean tteokbokki. Read more about it here.

3. Try the new goodies from IRVINS

Homegrown food brand IRVINS has launched six new products in a bid to move beyond being the marker of just ‘salted egg snacks’. 

The six new products are Fish Floss Fish Skin, Sichuan Pepper BBQ Dumpling Skin, Salted Egg Tomato Dumpling Skin, Chicken Curry Floss, Ikan Bilis Sambal and Pineapple Sambal. 

IRVINS also plans to release new snacks every three months. Find out more here.

4. Check out Singapore’s largest streetwear convention

The third edition of Singapore’s biggest street festival, Culture Cartel, will go digital. 

The free-for-all virtual event takes place on Dec 5 from 1pm to 12am. There will not be a physical festival because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Keep a lookout for exclusive Adidas shoes exclusively designed by homegrown names such as Mark Ong, Tomato and Love, Bonito. Or check out the various musicians who will perform at the festival!

5. Use your SingapoRediscovers vouchers

While travelling overseas is still a dream away, this is the first weekend where you can use your SingapoRediscovers vouchers (if you’re 18 and above). 

The vouchers are designed to help the core tourism industries such as hotels, attractions and tours amid the significant impact of COVID-19. The vouchers can be redeemed by five booking partners: Changi Recommends by Changi Travel Services (CTS), GlobalTix, Klook, Traveloka, and Trip.com.
