The weekend is here once again and it’s time to take a well-deserved break! Foodies will enjoy this weekend since there are a couple of new food offerings. 

If you’re headed out, do remember to stick to your groups of two. 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Oct 8-10): 

1. Go online shopping

It’s Oct 10 this Sunday! This means that you don’t have a lot of time left to snag cheap deals at the Shopee 10.10 Brands Festival. 

Up for grabs are various home appliances and electronic products where you can get up to 25 per cent cashback with no minimum spending. 

There will also be a daily midnight brand flash sale from 12am to 2am. More details can be found here. Just take care not to overspend!

2. Watch the President’s Star Charity

The annual President’s Star Charity is back with its 21st instalment and this year’s theme is Love Connects. This year’s show is hosted by Nurul Aini and Rebecca Lim, with performances by British singer-songwriter Calum Scott as well as local celebrities such as Stefanie Sun, Zoe Tay and Taufik Batisah. 

You can catch the show this Sunday on MeWatch and if you want to do your part by donating, you can do so here

3. Visit an old school cafe

Popular traditional bakery Chin Mee Chin Confectionery closed its doors back in 2018 due to a lack of a successor, but it has thankfully reopened sometime last month. 

You can try out their signature buns which still are not too sweet and not overly burnt – perfect for those who love some good old school bakes! There are also new modernised items on the menu such as plain cupcakes and chocolate peanut butter tarts. 

Chin Mee Chin is located 204 East Coast Road, Singapore 428903. It opens on Tuesdays to Sundays from 8am to 4pm. 

4. Eat some mala chicken

We Singaporeans love our mala. But have you ever eaten mala in a cup? 

Old Chang Kee has recently rolled out a new Sichuan mala in a cup (S$3.90) dish. It is made of deep-fried chicken, topped with dried chilli, peppercorn, chilli bean sauce, ginger, white sesame seeds, and peanuts. 

The limited time item will be available until October 31 across all its outlets. 

5. Try out new items from KFC

Fans of sweet potato would be pleased to know that KFC has just introduced sweet potato poppers on their menu. It is priced at S$1.95 for five pieces as an add-on with any purchase, or S$3.95 for 10 pieces. 

Alternatively, you can also try out KFC’s new breakfast items – the Original Recipe Riser and the Original Recipe Riser with egg (both from S$5.40). They are made of a standard chicken fillet, scrambled eggs, sliced cheddar and mayo, packed between oat buns. 

The items are available for purchase at all KFC restaurants except Singapore Zoo.
