Five things to do this weekend (Oct 1-3)
We are into the last quarter of 2021 now!
While we start the last quarter of 2021 with new COVID-19 restrictions yet again, there are still things to keep us occupied over the weekends, especially if you’re a foodie.
Do remember to stick in your groups of two!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Oct 1-3):
1. Ride on a water bike
Ever wanted to ride a bike but on water? Singapore’s first ever water bike service will launch this weekend at Pasir Ris Park!
Don’t worry if it sounds too sporty or if you don’t have prior experience, the bike is easy to maneuver and the staff at Waterbike Singapore staff will brief users with a safety induction before sailing off.
Rental will be available on weekends from 9am to 5pm and rates start from $30 for an hour. You can book your slots and find out more information here.
2. Learn more about mental health
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic taking a toll on the mental health of Singaporeans, it is important to be well equipped on the topic.
Local mental health and arts advocacy group, ThisConnect.today, has organised an exhibition to explore the stigma, labels and judgements about mental health. Called What Am I, If I Am Not, it will run until the end of October. The exhibition will feature five bodies of work which represent different layers of stigma and self-identity.
What Am I, If I Am Not is located at 39A Duxton Hill Level 2, Singapore 089617. Find out more here.
3. Visit a cat cafe
Meow! There is a new cat cafe in town for those looking for a good time with some cute felines! Paws Claws Petstore has a total of 17 resident cats that you can play with, in a cafe space that has a kitty playground and tables for humans.
Admission charges start from S$12 for the first hour in the cafe, and subsequent 30-minute and hourly extensions are priced at S$5 and S$8 respectively.
Paws Claws Petstore is located at 331 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427587. It opens daily from 11am to 8pm, by appointment only.
4. Eat a Samurai burger
There’s good news for those who’ve been missing the taste of McDonald’s Samurai Burger and Seaweed Shaker Fries: the popular dishes are making a comeback from Sep 29!
You can choose between beef and chicken for the Samurai burger (from S$6.20) and they come in both single and double versions. The Seaweed Shaker Fries costs an additional S$0.80 when you upsize your meal.
The dishes are available for purchase at McDonald’s restaurants, as well as via McDelivery, GrabFood and foodpanda.
5. Take part in a honeycomb challenge
If you thought you’ve seen enough of the Squid Game craze, then you’re terribly wrong. Brown Butter cafe is offering its customers a chance to take part in a honeycomb challenge inspired by the popular Korean show, where they can win a free latte.
Customers have to separate a requisite shape without breaking it from a circular piece of honeycomb. Although additional rules have yet to be announced, we’re sure it’s gonna be worth the free latte should you pass!
Brown Butter cafe is located at 583 Orchard Rd, #01-18/19, Forum The Shopping Mall, Singapore 238884. It opens daily at 11am.
