With group sizes decreasing from five people to two people, you will probably be spending a lot more time indoors and at home. 

If you are worried about having nothing to do at home, fret not, we’ve got you covered! 

Here are five things to do this weekend (May 14-16):

1. Eat a meat popsicle

Launched on May 12, KFC is now selling a special limited-edition meat popsicle which comes in two flavours – BBQ Cheese and Fiery Mala. 

It features a fried chicken cutlet drizzled with BBQ or mala sauce, and topped with cheese or mala crumbs. You can purchase it a la carte at $2.95 or in a Popsicle set at $5. The set includes one KFC popsicle, regular fries and a regular Pepsi Black.

You can also choose to purchase a set of three pints – one pint of kueh salat ice cream and two pints of any other flavours – at a special price of $29.80. 

3. Get a new pair of hiking shoes

Decathlon is having a promotion on its eco-friendly hiking shoes, the NH500, with prices starting from $40. 

The shoes are made using recycled materials and dual-hardness technology. After taking the feedback from the old model into consideration, Decathlon has improved the shoe’s comfort and grip.

4. Watch Vincenzo

Currently the number one Netflix show in Singapore, Vincenzo is one Korean drama you should definitely watch. 

Starring Song Joong-ki, the show tells the story of Vincenzo Cassano (played by Song), who is a lawyer and mafia consigliere who came to Korea when his organisation was betrayed.

5. Read Goh Chok Tong’s second biography

What better way to find out more about Singapore’s history than to read a biography by former prime minister Goh Chok Tong?

In his new book titled Standing Tall, Goh details key moments of his career as prime minister. These include his electoral triumphs and foreign policy implementations.

The 18-chapter book, which was officially launched on May 7, is a sequel to Tall Order published in 2018.
