And, just like that, another Monday has rolled around at high speed. But don’t worry, because these next few days are going to be good ‘uns. Don’t believe us? Check out our top picks for the week ahead below…
1. Catch a movie with your mini
Are you a family of movie-lovers? Then get smiling, everybody, because every Monday to Wednesday until the end of the month, you can get complimentary admission for one child below six years old with every standard ticket purchased at Filmgarde Cineplex at Bugiss+. The deal applies for movie sessions before 3pm, while stocks last. And, if you don’t have the opportunity to head out to the cinema, you can bring the movie fun to your home with our pick of the best Halloween family movies!
When: Until 31 October
2. Get your eyes tested and give #Sight4More
Did you know that Singapore has one of the highest rates of myopia in the world? Make sure you detect any eyesight issues early by having a regular eye test. The good news? By going for an eye health check, contact lens brand Acuvue will donate to the Sight for Kids initiative to provide eye screening tests for four underprivileged children across Southeast Asia. Love us a good cause. Find out more info about the campaign here.
3. Get holiday planning!
With all the running around sorting out Halloween costumes and celebrating Diwali in Singapore – not to mention… dare we say it… Christmas – you’re going to be in need of a break soon. Which is why you’re going to love our guides to all the international school holidays and public holidays for 2020 so you can get planning your breaks! Huzzah!
4. Super salads!
Us HoneyKids folk love heading to some of Singapore’s family-friendly farms at the best of times, but this week the greens are coming to you! Head down to Funan WeWork for Food & Fun: True Singapore Salad Experience by Edible Garden Farm. It’s pegged as an ‘unbeetable’ salad-making experience, combined with an exclusive tour of the Funan urban farm. Trained chef and farmer Chris will be leading the way and showcasing regionally-native ingredients, including fresh butterfly blue pea flowers, and sharing how the veggies were grown, how they can be used and what their nutritional benefits are. So pile up your plates with some super salad and enjoy a healthy hump day! This workshop is designed for young adults aged 13 and above and adults.
When: Wednesday, 16 October; 12–1pm or 1–2pm
Where: WeWork Funan, 109 North Bridge Road, 04-26, Singapore 179097
Cost: $60/pax, including all taxes and materials. Sign up here.
5. Give Muay Thai a go!
While we love our family time, we’re all for solo hobbies – having time out and ‘me time’ is super important to destress and recentre. Esther, one of our HoneyKids mums, recently raved about how Muay Thai is her sanity saver. Read for yourself how being kickass helps her deal with all the trials and tribulations of parenthood. You never know – it might even be all the encouragement you need to sign up yourself!
