7 Things do at home this weekend during MCO: 16 & 17 January 2021

1. Satisfy your sweet tooth with Huckleberry Food & Fare

We know dalgona coffee and burnt cheesecake can only do so much to please your sugar cravings during the partial lockdown. Thanks to Huckleberry’s new addition to the dessert menu, the King’s cake (Galette des Rois), you’ve got an extra dessert to indulge in. This flaky puff pastry is often associated with Epiphany, a celebration to commemorate the arrival of the Three Wise Men in Bethlehem.

But that’s not all—this cake comes with a little surprise! Huckleberry’s King’s cake is topped with a golden paper crown and a little trinket hidden inside it, and whoever finds it will be deemed King or Queen for the day.

2. Boost your metabolism with these tips

We know how tough it is to work out when you’re stuck at home, especially when you don’t have gym equipment lying around. But one handy tip is to keep moving, be it walking up and down the stairs or completing active chores such as vacuuming and mopping the floor. The saying “use them or lose them” also applies to all your muscles—it’s important to retain muscle even throughout lockdown as higher amounts of muscle will result in a higher metabolism.

3. Entertain yourself while staying safe indoors with Netflix

Covid-19 has yet again upended our daily lives and many of us have spent vast amounts of time looking for ways to entertain ourselves indoors. Catch Netflix’s latest release, Outside the Wire—a futuristic, action-packed film that follows a drone pilot sent into a deadly militarised zone to locate a doomsday device before the insurgents do. No plans this Friday? Get comfy in your cosiest pyjamas, prep your favourite comfort food, sit back and enjoy the show.

Well, there’s no excuse now as time is all we have. Do something fun such as trying out a couple of TikTok beauty trends; if you’re a beauty product hogger, perhaps it’s the perfect time of the year to clean out your entire beauty stash.
