EatPost Category - EatEatFamily LifePost Category - Family LifeFamily LifePlayPost Category - PlayPlay

As Covid-19 continues and we move into Phase 2, support local businesses with discounts on activities, food and shopping deals while having fun and staying safe

The circuit breaker may have ended, but COVID-19 continues to impact everyday life in Singapore, from the ubiquity of face masks (or face shields) to the continued closure of the playgrounds at our fave kid-friendly restaurants. There are plenty of offers in the meantime, though, from membership discounts to restaurant promo codes. Stay tuned as we continue to update this list; we’ve also rounded up some of our favorite online learning resources and offers.

Since more outlets and services are gradually coming back online during Phase 2, it’s best to bookmark gov.sg for a running list of what IS and ISN’T allowed on any given day!

Audible can be streamed for free on desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.
