Five things to do this weekend (July 30-Aug 1)
Explore murals in Ang Mo Kio, or try out Starbucks’ newest drink this weekend!
August is coming and that may mean we might soon be able to dine in at restaurants and gather with more of our friends soon!
For now, it is still crucial that we do our part to adhere to them and stick to our groups of two – to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.
Still, that does not mean we can’t have fun. Here are five things to do this weekend (July 30 – Aug 1):
1. Take a walk in Ang Mo Kio
The walls of some HDB blocks in Ang Mo Kio Ave 4 have been painted with murals of local taste such as a White Rabbit candy, a kopi cup and ang ku kueh.
This is part of an initiative by the Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) to provide landmarks for the elderly, so that they can navigate around the neighbourhood and back home.
These murals also include a traditional bowl, kueh lapis, satay and tang yuan.
2. Buy a $5.60 fish and chicken meal
In commemoration of Singapore’s 56th birthday, fast-food chain Long John Silver’s Singapore is offering items on their menu at S$5.60.
These include a fish and chicken with fries meal, a three-piece chicken with fries meal, or a two pieces of dory fish with fries meal. You can also add a regular Coke or Sprite to the meal.
3. Try out new drinks from Starbucks
Starbucks Singapore has launched a new drink as part of its National Day menu.
Aptly named ‘SHIOK-AH-CCINO’, the drink is made up of Starbucks roasted coffee with nutty hojicha tea, rich chocolate chips, whipped cream and a Merlion Bearista Chocolate Topper. You can also try returning drinks: The Neapolitan Frappuccino and S’mores Frappuccino.
All the drinks are priced at S$8.20 for a tall size. The drinks will be available in stores and via its delivery partners GrabFood, Foodpanda and Deliveroo. Find out more here.
4. Listen to Billie Eilish’s new album
American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish released her highly anticipated second studio album on Jul 30.
Titled Happier Than Ever, the album talks about emotional abuse, power struggles, and the fantasies of secret romantic rendezvous. The album’s pre-released five singles – ‘My Future’, ‘Therefore I Am’, ‘Your Power’, ‘Lost Cause’, and ‘NDA’ – all charted in the top 40 of the US Billboard Hot 100.
Listen to the album here.
5. Watch Kingdom: Ashin of the North
The one-off special episode of South Korean TV series Kingdom dropped on Netflix last week as a prequel to the show’s two seasons.
Titled Kingdom: Ashin of the North, the show tells the story of Ashin, a girl from the Northern village of Seongjeoyain, and her journey of revenge. The special episode is directed by Kim Seong-hun and stars Jun Ji-hyun, Kim Shi-ah, Kim Roi-ha, Park Byung-eun, Jung Suk-won and Koo Kyo-hwan as the main cast.
