Here are more things you can do to alleviate your boredom while staying at home this circuit breaker.

Bored of the games or shows you’ve been playing and watching time and again during the circuit breaker period?

Here’s a guide for you to pack your schedule this weekend (Apr 24-26)!

1. Catch a stand-up comedy on Cr8studiosg 

Need something to brighten your day? Head over to Cr8studiosg’s Facebook page and catch the only Singaporean comedian with his own Netflix special, Fakkah Fuzz, deliver a stand-up set from home! Fakkah will also be showcasing his More Better podcast as part of his performance, which starts at 7pm.

If stand-up comedy isn’t your thing, how about live performances then? From 8pm, Cr8studiosg will stream performances live from Daniel Sid (winner of the Best Song to Study To award at the Youth Music Awards 2020), Joie Tan and Annette Lee!


2. Party till you drop at home with Warner Music Group's PlayOn Fest

For those missing their usual weekend parties, how about catching live music from some of the biggest names in the music world? Big acts such as Ed Sheeran, Paramore, Coldplay and Wiz Khalifa are slated to perform during this 72-hour, three-day virtual music festival, so that’s your weekend sorted out.

All you need to do is plug in your headphones or music speakers, and hop onto Songkick’s YouTube channel here.

3. Educate yourself about the world with Netflix 

If performances aren’t your thing and you prefer a quiet weekend, you can catch up with some education documentaries from Netflix. The best part? You don’t have to pay for it! Netflix has made some documentaries available FOR FREE (!!!) on its YouTube channel. The line-up includes the first nature documentary Netflix has made, Our Planet.

You can catch it here.

4. Catch a local play online

If you miss heading to a theatre, Pangdemonium is making a video recording of Falling available for streaming on their Vimeo page from 8pm on Friday until 11.59pm on Sunday. The play, starring Adrian Pang, Tan Kheng Hua and Fiona Lim, provides a glimpse into the life of a family with an autistic child.

Another local production that’s providing free online screenings for their play is WILD RICE. You can find out more about it here.


5. Join a photography contest from home 

Here’s something else you can do besides lying on your couch staring at your TV or laptop screens or filming TikTok videos. Take some photos at home instead!

Raffles Health Insurance (RHI) and the Photographic Society of Singapore (PSS) have organised a #StayHome Smartphone Photography contest that will run until May 26.

All that is required of you is to take a photo of what #StayHome means to you with your smartphone, come up with some witty caption and you can stand a chance to win cash prizes up to $1,000!

Interested? Then start snapping away. You can submit up to four photos here.

In the meantime, stay home and stay safe!
