It’s the Mother’s Day weekend, but with tightened COVID-19 measures kicking in this weekend, it might be more muted.

Still, in order to curb the rise in community cases, practicing safe distancing will be important. 

In groups of 5 or less, here are five things to do this weekend (May 7 to May 9): 

1. Check out PCK’s latest music video

With the number of local cases increasing over the past two weeks, the government has been encouraging citizens to get vaccinated. 

In a two-minute YouTube video posted by, local icons Phua Chu Kang (Gurmit Singh) and Rosie (Irene Ang) raps to a tune in a bid to encourage everyone to get vaccinated. They addressed concerns such as how the elderly and those with chronic illnesses or mild allergies can get vaccinated, after double checking with the doctor.

2. Go on a photoshoot



A perfect Mother’s Day idea! While most photo studios are dying out in Singapore due to digitalisation, Fotomat Studio stands out as it specialises in self black and white studio shoots.

This means that you have the creative freedom to direct your own shoots and poses. 

A standard self black and white studio shooting cost S$30, including a 15-minute shoot of unlimited shots for two persons. Two printed photos can be received on the same day. 

Fotomat Studio is located at 3F, 155 Waterloo St, Stamford Arts Centre, Singapore 187962 and opens daily from 11am to 9pm. 

Reservations can be made here

3. Try out new drinks from LiHO



Bubble tea chain LiHO is revamping their entire menu and the drinks are now split into six categories: Ice Cream Tea, Fresh Milk Tea, Fruitea, Milk Fruitea, Lit Coffee and Mightea. 

Highlights include the Ice Cream Tea category where bubble teas here will come with cheese ice cream. In the Lit Coffee category, there will be a roast blend of Ethiopia, Brazil and Laos beans. 

The new menu will be available across all outlets. 

4. Visit a new cafe



Opened late last month, threepointtwo is a new cafe that serves a variety of gelato flavours. 

This includes their signature Mao Shan Wang flavour (S$4 for a single scoop) as well as Blue Vanilla, Watermelon Mint and Honey Lavender. 

You can also try out durian-flavoured sweet treats like D24 and Mao Shan Wang Puffs, D24 Durian Mochi, and Durian Mousse.

The threepointtwo cafe is located at 85 Kampong Bahru Road, Singapore 169380. It opens from 12pm to 10pm from Sundays to Thursdays, and 12pm to 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. 

5. Get a new pair of spectacles



Fans of popular anime series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will be happy to know that optical chain Owndays has launched a lineup of spectacle frames inspired by the series. 

Priced at SS$258 each, the set would include standard high index aspheric lenses, an exclusive spectacle case and a cleaning cloth. 

There are six designs to choose from which are inspired by six characters – Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, Inosuke, Giyu and Shinobu. The frames are available at 12 outlets islandwide, or you may choose to purchase it online here.
