Stuck at home with nothing to do during phase one? We have some ideas to keep you busy — just tell us what’s your travel style! 🛫
Always on the move.
For some reason, Singaporeans are always on the move. However, due to the circuit breaker, we’ve all been cooped up at home to prevent the COVID-19 spread. Even with phase one, life isn’t quickly returning to normal. At this point, you’re probably used to this small-but-big issue: Got nothing to do. How??
Eh, chill. Our first piece of advice is to do the things you’ve been putting off for two months. But if that doesn’t kill your restlessness at home, do these two things instead:
Tell us about your travel style, and we’ll suggest an activity for you to do at home!
I’ve got my result! How should I get started?Read More
(1) For those learning to make a foreign dish
Everyone’s gone on a baking spree, but not everyone is blessed with an oven. Instead, search for simple foreign recipes to try at home! If you need some inspiration, try making Thai Basil Chicken or Shakshuka. You can also shop for groceries online on RedMart or Shopee.
Alternatively, if you’re feeling laze, order all your favourite cuisines instead! Check out this list of our top tasty picks 😋
(2) For future trip planners
Yeah, sian. The weekend escapes to JB, Batam or Bali just aren’t happening anytime soon, but that’s no excuse to let the let your wanderlust wane! Whether it’s to New Zealand or Iceland, check out our destination guides and itineraries for more ideas. You can also explore the world virtually (think of it as a teaser to the real thing 😉).
If you’ve set your sights on somewhere exotic and thrilling, why not join us for an epic adventure with TTI Experiences? You can explore the untouched beauty of Mongolia or Kazakhstan (or both!) with like-minded travellers, and get a taste of living with badass nomads. The best part is, there’re now flexible travel dates — so you can embark on your journey when you want to.
(3) For those learning a new language
Download language learning apps like Duolingo, Babbel and Memrise. Some lessons are free, however, do note that you’ll need to pay a fee to access the rest of the content. Another easy (and free) way to improve is to simply listen to songs or watch shows in your chosen language!
Check out these 10 free online resources to kickstart your new language journey.
(4) For those picking up a relaxing hobby
Travelling aside, go for a therapeutic hobby that helps you unwind! We recommend something slow like meditation, journalling, watercolour painting, or simple gardening. They’re easy to learn with loads of online tutorials and guides to walk you through.
If you’d rather stick to travel books or movies that’ll immerse you in a different environment, check out our recommendations.
Whatever result you receive, do the best you can! We know it’s an anxious time for everyone right now. Even as the circuit breaker ends, the “reopening” in phases is still tough news to handle — all the more reason, it’s important to take care of yourself.
From us to you, hang in there! 💪
