Five things to do this weekend (May 28-30)
The June holidays are here!
The June holidays are finally here but as we are still in Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), it definitely limits what we can do.
While we stay home as much as we can to keep ourselves safe from COVID-19, there are still plenty of things to try out this weekend!
Here are five things to do this weekend (May 28 to May 30):
1. Support elderly hawkers
P2HA has definitely affected the F&B industry and it seems like elderly hawkers are hit the hardest as they’re not tech-savvy enough to set up operations for online delivery services.
Thankfully, an Instagram account, Where To Dapao (@wheretodapao), has been set up anonymously by a hawker food lover in a bid to get people to buy from these hawkers instead.
The account, which has amassed over 28,000 followers, features three different food vendors daily.
2. Read John Green’s latest book
Popular author John Green released his latest book, The Anthropocene Reviewed: Essays on a Human-Centered Planet, earlier this month.
The book is an adaptation of several podcasts that Green previously produced. It explores different facets of the Anthropocene as well as the significant human impact on the environment.
3. Listen to Katy Perry’s new single
While Uniqlo’s Pokemon 25th anniversary UT Collection has been delayed, there are still other ways to celebrate it!
Singer Katy Perry has released a single ‘Electric’. The music video, which premiered on YouTube, tells the story of the singer and Pikachu who assist younger versions of themselves and, in turn, find out how their lives can be more electrifying.
Watch the music video here.
4. Pre-order Jeanette Aw’s pastries
Local actress Jeanette Aw opened her own patisserie, Once Upon A Time, earlier this month and launched its website on May 25.
There will be a rotating menu of cakes and pastries, with three to five bakes available at each time. These include the Blueberry Burst ($10), Financiers (S$26 for a box of 10) and Pineapple Financiers ($32 for a box of 10).
While orders are already full for June, you can still place orders for July onwards. Place your order now on the website.
5. Try a blueberry cream cheese pie
Fast food chain McDonald’s has new items on their menu once again, but this time without much publicity on their social media pages.
The items include the Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie (S$1.95) and the Lotus Biscoff McFlurry (S$3.40). ‘
While these items are new in Singapore, they have previously been available in other countries like Malaysia, Belgium and France.
Alternatively, you can try the Yuzu McFizz, which was last sold in September 2020.
