Grab the chance to be part of a global movement to save our planet Earth by doing the simplest thing: switching off all your lights during Earth Hour 2021. On Saturday (27 March), one of the things to do in Singapore is gathering the family at home and turning off the lights to support the fight against climate change.
Organisers of Earth Hour are also encouraging residents to write their Kosong Plan. This is a list of climate actions that Singaporeans are encouraged to undertake every day to help achieve a “low-carbon, climate-resilient” home.
3. An extended visit from Hello Kitty at the Flower Dome

It would also do you good to spend the weekend strolling through nature with the family at some of the island’s nature parks. After spending the whole week at work and with the kids at home, this would be a great opportunity to get some much-needed relaxation.
Get some fresh air and walk or bike around a park near you. After a long day of some outdoor fun with your children, you can lay out a picnic and end the day with a cosy family dinner.
Don’t miss out on a chance to spend the weekend with your loved ones and make sure to enjoy that short break you’ve been needing throughout the week.
