With Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) measures in full swing, it does limit the number of activities to do this weekend.

But we all play our parts, we can get to head out and have fun soon so do stay at home and stay safe!

Here are five things you can do from the comforts of your own homes this weekend (May 21-23):

1. Support a charity bake sale

If you have a sweet tooth, this bake sale is just for you!

From May 17 to Jun 14, the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) is organising a charity bake sale with 18 participating home bakers.

They are selling a variety of sweet treats including chiffon cakes, macarons, brownies, cookies and tiramisu. Each baker will also donate a minimum 20 per cent of their proceeds to SPD – a local charity that supports persons with disabilities.

You can place your orders online and find out more about the bake sale here. Alternatively, you can also make a donation to the event here.
