Finding yourself stumped on how to spend your free time during this period? While waiting for your $100 SingapoRediscovers Vouchers to be released in December, here are 4 fun activities that will help you make the most of your free time.
For the arty-farty
Craft a terrazzo-style tray from scratch
Make your very own vanity tray out of Jesmonite, an eco-friendly water-based resin that is ultra-versatile when colours and designs are applied.
For the sports buff
Go for a ‘Taster’ session of windsurfing
For sports enthusiasts who are also thrill seekers, this 2-hour session at Aloha Sea Sports Centre is the perfect chance to try out what windsurfing is like before deciding to sign up for a basic course.
Experience the wind in your hair as you learn techniques to pick up speed and gain power in the sail. A combination of sailing and surfing, windsurfing is a full-body sport that builds agility, strength and focus. The Taster session costs $200/pax for a group of 1-2 and $150 for a group of 3-8.
If the idea of windsurfing scares you, why not channel your inner flow through the open sea on a stand up paddle board by going for a session of Stand Up Paddling Yoga at Aloha Sea Sports Centre? No yoga experience is needed – the 1-hour session held on weekends will cost you $60/pax for a group of 2-10. Just pack a change of clothes in a water resistant dry bag and you’re good to go.
For the alcohol lover
Make a variety of cocktails from scratch
In case you were wondering, this is much more complex than mixing a shot of gin and a can of tonic water. Making a cocktail requires some experience – or not if you manage to follow the 37-minute long step-by-step video by Epicurious on YouTube.
With more than 50 cocktail demos in the video, you’ll be spoilt for choice trying to pick a cocktail to impress your date with. While you’re at it, splurge on some bartending tools at EC Proof or opt for a budget set under $30 on Lazada.
For the undiscovered drama queens (and kings)
Try out improvisational theatre online
If you’re an introvert looking to break out of your comfort zone, there’s no better way than to try out an Improv for Everyone Online Taster Session ($10/pax) conducted via Zoom by local company The Improv Theatre.
The 1.5-hour session is a pressure-free introduction to improv that requires no prior acting experience at all. The session will explore the core principles behind improv and why they are just as applicable in daily life as they are on stage. Get hands-on practice by participating in simple games and exercises that encourage the application of these core improv principles!

While large-scale events are still postponed or cancelled, there are still fun activities that you can participate in by yourself or as a small group. Some activities have even gone digital to allow more people to enjoy them in the comfort and safety of their home. Whether you choose to make a cocktail at home or take up a new sport, you might just be surprised at how much you can take away from the experience!
