Save the date
“There’s nothing to do in Singapore!”
Well, I’m pretty sure this has been said over a million times whenever you try to plan a date with your boyfriend. It’s always the same “Shall we meet for lunch, catch a movie then maybe go for supper?” drill. During the honeymoon stage of your relationship, you probably don’t really care what you’re doing since both of you are busy getting lost in each other’s eyes.
But for couples who have been together since forever – and plan to be together forever – it’s always good to inject some variety and excitement into your relationship once in awhile.
So today, I’m going to share two activities for you to try with your man over the weekend! And don’t worry, they are not going to burst a huge hole in the pocket!
A blast from the past
to head to the movies theatre every single week, I know. But if you have a
chance to experience a drive-in movie, just like the kind of dates mum and dad
use to go on, why not? In Singapore,
www.moviemob.sg, organises free outdoor
movies screenings. If you drive, all you have to do is grab some popcorns, find
a parking lot and enjoy the movie under the moonlight. And even if you don’t
have a car, just grab a picnic mat and a portable radio! Just imagine how
romantic it would be to have your own little space, being able to bring any
kinds of food you want, and basking under the moonlight over a good movie…
Or you could... cook up a storm!

if you can’t even fry a proper egg? You can still go for a cooking class
together and have fun bonding over good food and wine. I have been dying to
sign up for cooking classes ever since I heard how much fun it is. And the good
thing about such classes is that there’re no planning required on your side, so
it’s totally fuss free. All you have to do is pick a class that you’re keen in
(be it cupcakes decoration, cake baking or even learning how to make fish and
chips or Cajun chicken), register for it and turn up on the day itself.
Think about it, you get to pick up cooking skills, have fun and you don’t even have to clean up the kitchen after that! I’m thinking of signing up for the “Cooking with alcohol” class. Just looking at the menu is enough to make me drool! Check out the classes at www.cookyn-with-mervyn.com, they have different themes/classes every month so you can be sure to find something you both like. Prices start from about $45/pax.
If you need more ideas on what to do this month, why not flip to page 194 of the September issue of CLEO to check out the event calendar? I’m sure both you and your boyfriend will be able to find something up your alley.
You see, here’s the thing, a lot of couples tend to stop being creative and romantic after they have been together for a period of time. But I believe that one should never get too comfortable in a relationship – always make it a point to inject variety and fun. All it takes is a little effort to keep the flame alive. So do you know of any interesting activities to do on our island? Don’t forget to share with me!
