7 Things do at home this weekend during MCO: 30 & 31 January 2021

1. Be one of the first to catch the premiere of Roald Dahl’s The Witches

Adapted from the 1983 children’s fantasy novel written by Roald Dahl, The Witches is a must-watch for both children and adults. It tells the darkly humorous yet heart-warming tale of a young boy living with his grandmother after his parents died in a car accident. They begin to encounter deceptively glamorous and diabolical witches who are planning to carry out their evil plans i.e. turning every child they see into mice.


Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, Chris Rock, Kristin Chenoweth

It’s time to take a step back and start paying attention to both our mental and physical needs during such a time. Start looking into insurance plans that will serve as a safety net, just like the saying—better safe than sorry!
