Five things to do this weekend (June 25-27)
A local card game, a new cafe or shopping at a ‘not so new’ online store are things you can explore this weekend!
Time flies! We are already halfway through 2021 and while the June holidays may be coming to an end, there are definitely things to do before the hustle and bustle of school (or work) resumes.
Here are five things to do this weekend (Jun 25 to Jun 27):
1. Play a new local card game
The creators of the local card game The Singaporean Dream released another game, Hawker Wars, on Jun 22.
The game was created to celebrate the various elements of our unique Singaporean Hawker Culture, especially during these trying times hawkers face because of COVID-19.
Players get to take on the role of a hawker and compete with other players to cook as many dishes and earn as many points.

2. Try some minion-themed desserts
2am: dessertbar, owned by popular pastry chef Janice Wong, has launched a new high tea series which follows the theme of “Despicable Me” characters – the Minions.
The high tea set ($55 for adults, $40 for children), includes Orange Blossom Macarons, Kevin’s Popcorn Caramel Bon Bon and edible crayons. This themed set will be available every Tuesday to Sunday, from 3pm to 6pm for 6 weeks starting June 22.
