It’s finally here: after two years of anxious waiting, we can finally resume a semblance of normalcy with the latest easing of Covid-19 regulations.
As we celebrate the return of entertainment establishments, having the option to pull our masks down on the streets, and being able to dine in a bigger group, here are 5 things that you can look forward to doing now.
CHILL TO GOOD MUSIC
A big part of our after-hours enjoyment came from being able to let our hair down and take in the wonderful vibes from live bands and singers on stage, as we sip on drinks and forget the stresses of the day. Thankfully, we can now head over to our favourite spots after work and bask in the peaceful pleasure of having these acts accompany our well-deserved poison of choice.
ENJOY YOUR AFTER-HOUR TIPPLE BEYOND 10:30
With the latest announcement, entertainment and nightlife establishments can now continue serving customers after 10.30pm. This comes as a much-welcome treat for many of us who’ve had to cut short our evenings and keep our visits to our regular watering holes within curfew.
HAVE A REAL PICNIC
Yes, picnic. Remember the days when we could gather a whole bunch of our friends, batchmates, or even the entire family to head out and enjoy quality time together over a picturesque scene and simple food? We’ve kept our gatherings to under 5 for so long, we’ve probably almost forgotten how that felt. Now, we can finally plan a proper day out, to meaningfully bond with more of the people we love.
PLAN ESCAPE ROOM ADVENTURES
Time to finally conquer those high-level escape room campaigns that you’ve been meaning to experience but have left on hold because, let’s face it, some of them have explicitly declared their difficulty and we weren’t going to risk a session without having the numbers for a fighting chance. Besides, it’s an interactive real-time activity, and getting scared together with more friends would infinitely be more fun than with less.
VISIT LOCAL ATTRACTIONS WITH THE FAMILY
For many of us, planning a family outing meant more than 5 pax. There’re those with bigger family units, and there’re those who also miss hanging out with our extended family members – the uncle, aunty, and cousins we grew up with. Having to keep within 5 pax meant that most of us had actually stopped planning the usual family meetings. But after many ups and downs, we can finally hit up our favourite people or bring all the kids out together, to spend time laughing and learning at the many attractions our city has to offer.
