?And it’s not just the mushy anniversary stuff.
Don’t quite fancy the fancy dinners (you see each other’s bedheads every day, for goodness’ sake)? We’ve got unique restaurants that don’t even feel like Singapore, dining by the sea, secret cafes in Singapore’s HDB estates and more.
NEXT: Visit a city you’ve never been to before →
You don’t have to go far to get away – there’s tons to explore in Southeast Asia alone, whether you’re after a tropical city-detox or an adrenaline-packed adventure. And even a weekend is good enough! Try these unconventional weekend getaways near Singapore. Planning one without the kids? You’ll love these honeymoon-worthy destinations.
NEXT: Mandate a thorough closet clean-up →
Take a weekend to weed through all of his stretched-out plain tees, and your excessive collection of socks. It might all be concealed behind your wardrobe doors, but an organised, uncluttered wardrobe saves so much time each morning, and gives you a sense of calm at home. Try to keep your wardrobe organised as long as possible, although failure is only a matter of time – which is why this should be at least a yearly affair.
NEXT: Get to know another couple →
International social clubs like The American Club and the British Club are good starting points. Or, throw a mini housewarming party and invite your friends and their plus ones over, or help facilitate a newly-settled in couple. Introduce yourself to your Singaporean neighbors and ask them about the best local eats at your doorstep. None of those cringy double dates, of course.
NEXT: Have a HUGE fight →
Does your partner always leave the dishes overnight? Why should you be entitled to 80% of our wardrobe space? Losing your sh*t can be cathartic, and much healthier than keeping it all in. Just make sure you reach a compromise and grow as a couple after. Oh, and don’t involve the kids.
NEXT: Try an exotic food →
Maybe the green-ness of matcha has always scared you. Do frogs taste as slimy as they look? There are tons of options to whet the appetite of the adventurous here in Singapore, from Frog Leg Porridge in Geylang to the famous (or infamous) King of Fruits, the Durian. They’re a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing, but how would you ever know if you’ve never tried them?
NEXT: Book a health check-up together →
Doctor’s appointments can get incredibly draggy – don’t even get us started on the wait – so having company definitely helps. Accompany each other to your health check-ups. Being directly involved makes it easier to keep tabs on your partner’s health, too. Both for their sake and yours!
NEXT: Be a tourist in your own city →
We’d wager a bet that some of your friends from out of town have visited more attractions in Singapore than you have. If you’d rather not jostle with other tourists for a picture with the Merlion, we’ll have you know that some of the city’s most magnificent places aren’t in the tourist hotspots or heritage areas, but in your very neighborhood. Try these national monuments for a start!
NEXT: Have sex in a new place →
What’s so erotic about doing the deed on top of the washer? Only one way to find out. Your kids won’t know – just as long as you clean up properly!
NEXT: Go on a non-anniversary date night →
