With the opening of the new Changi Bay Park Connector, nature lovers now have yet another scenic spot to hang out at. Likened by many to Jeju Island, this coastal area in the East along Aviation Park Road spans across 3.6km, creating a path from Changi Beach Park to the East Coastal Park Connector Network.

One of the highlights is the boardwalk and pavilion at Changi Bay Point, which serves as a great lookout point for colourful sunsets by the water’s edge. There are quite a few benches scattered around, so you can rest your legs while soaking in the views after a long trek or cycling expedition. Spot the lush lalang swaying in the wind too!

Other unique points of interest are the lone trees, one of which appears to be “floating” in water when it’s semi-submerged during high tide.

One of the highlights is the Cone-nection Cube where you’ll be completing a series of quests that will pave the way for bonding and sharing of memories. Along the way, you’ll also encounter some fresh new Instagram spots including a mirrored disco room, so feel free to stop and whip out your camera!

Upon completion of the quests, you’ll get to celebrate with a free sprinkle shot at the alfresco bar that’s open only for this after-hours experience! This drinking zone comes decked out in pink palm trees, fairy lights, and comfy lounge chairs for chill time with your favourite people, and is also open to the public.

#3: Make a butterfly or duckling dome in a taxidermy workshop

Taxidermy might sound like a morbid activity - especially during the month of love - but at Black Crow Taxidermy & Art, beauty is found in the most unexpected places. Helmed by a young lady, this taxidermy studio largely deals with insects like butterflies, along with reptiles like lizards and snakes, but also works on small mammals too. In fact, the owner even takes up requests from paw-rents who’d like to preserve their dearly departed cats, hamsters, and such.

You, too, can get up close and personal with some of these beautifully preserved specimens through their butterfly dome and butterfly frame workshops, which span from 1 to 1.5 hours. You’ll not only get to take home your very own DIY decor piece, you’ll also be learning more about local butterfly species in their natural habitat. Preserved flowers and wood will be provided, but if you’re free to bring along additional embellishments for extra pizzazz!

Those who are less squeamish can also consider the chick/duckling dome workshop, where you’ll gain insight on the taxidermy process of birds. Yes, you read that right - you’ll be handling preserved baby chickens or ducks and turning them into works of art. Rest assured, all specimens are ethically obtained.

Address: 195 Pearl's Hill Terrace, #01-10, Singapore 168976

#4: Get curious with the Radical Curiosity exhibition at ArtScience Museum

You have one man to thank if you’ve ever enjoyed dome dining or marvelled at a dome-shaped building: Buckminster Fuller. The American architect, inventor, and designer was the very one who came up with the geodesic dome structure, which is widely used for construction of buildings and installations today. In Radical Curiosity: In the Orbit of Buckminster Fuller, you’ll be learning more about his work and experimentations, complete with interactive elements.

#5: 3D print your own name keychains and cute charms in a hands-on workshop

Ever been curious about 3D printing but can’t bear to splurge on the equipment, or are simply clueless on where to get started? The “A Taste of 3D Printing” workshop by local 3D printing specialist Filament & Chips will provide a beginner-friendly introduction to all the basics, while allowing you to create your own personalised name keychains with cute dangling charms!

There are plenty of filament colours and finishes to choose from, including matte and metallic. The exact design of the charm will vary, but generally, you can expect movable elements that allow the charm to shimmy or spin in some way. We made cute mudskipper charms with wiggly tails when we visited, and they even had a spinnable snowflake design specially for Christmas!

Don’t worry, there won’t be any complicated coding required on your end, but you will definitely get the chance to be hands-on with the computer software and 3D printer before watching your creation come to life, layer by layer, right before your eyes. Despite being a total tech noob, I thoroughly enjoyed myself during the in-depth session and would recommend it if you’re looking for an out-of-the-ordinary date idea.

Filament & Chips also takes up custom projects, so if you have something in mind that you’d like them to bring to life, give them a holla! Their Pokeballs in particular are highly popular, with coloured lights and even a shaking effect that mimics what you’ve seen in the cartoons! Some customers have even ordered the Pokeballs as watch storage or unique engagement ring boxes for proposals!

Whisk your lover off on an exotic escapade to La Fez, a pink Moroccan-inspired cafe that packs some serious Marrakesh vibes.

#7: Score a hole-in-one at Korean indoor mini golf centre, Friends Golf

Friends Golf SingaporePhoto from Friends Golf

Visiting a golf simulator might be puzzling for some, but for those who don’t want to deal with the scorching sun, mud, and walking a tun, it makes perfect sense. Friends Golf is Singapore’s first and only Korean indoor golf simulator, where you’ll be putting a real ball not across a grassy field, but “through” a screen.

How this works is that you’ll be taking a swing on the artificial turf, and once the ball hits the screen, a virtual ball will soar across a virtual golf course, with the distance projected based on your hitting strength and angle.

Aside from creatures of comfort who enjoy being in air-con, this indoor golf simulator is also suitable for those who’d like to perfect their skills before visiting an actual golf course. In fact, there are experienced professional golf coaches from Korea onsite to help you master your swings.

Friends Golf SingaporePhoto from Friends Golf

There are 5 private rooms and 7 practice ranges, and you’ll get to choose from 187 virtual courses - most of which are simulations of actual golf courses located in Korea. Check out the cute KAKAO FRIENDS decor too!

A 9-hole package is priced at a discounted rate of $39 (U.P. $42) when you book via Klook.

Address: 12 Queen Street, #02-01 Hotel Royal @ Queens, Singapore 188553

The idea of a campfire dinner might sound super romantic - until you encounter mosquitoes, harsh weather, and general dirt and grime.

This heritage shophouse wedding venue will be transformed into a planetarium of sorts, where you’ll be having either an a la carte menu or 5-course set meal by candlelight, with aesthetically-pleasing tent seating. On top of an interactive activity, guests will also get to put together their own coloured bath salt bottles.

#10: Admire a 10-metre rainbow-hued installation made with paint from seashells

Hope from Chaos ArtScience Museum SingaporePhoto from ArtScience Museum

Somewhere around this time two years ago - shortly after the first case of you-know-what emerged in Singapore - locally-based Korean artist Eun Vivian Lee started putting together a 10-metre paper installation full of tiny rainbow dots, painted on with pigments created from seashells. Titled The Diary of 2020, this large-scale art piece was how she expressed her fears related to the uncertainty going on in the world.

While a Valentine’s Day trip to Japan is quite out of the question right now, an onsen spa day within the Little Red Dot is not. The zen HEIWA Wellness and Spa offers just that, with facilities like a mineral-filled onsen, infrared steam bath, sauna, and various types of massages.

Pottery studios are popping up everywhere in Singapore but the newly-opened Am I Addicted at City Hall is probably the only Korean-style one. Other than having a Korean lady boss, the studio has a whopping 130 different shades of glaze to choose from, all specially brought in from Korea. Spacious, semi-open, and decorated with plants, this inviting space is one that’ll let your mind fully relax!

Late risers might just change their minds about waking up early in the morning with the Breakfast at Sea experience by Sindo Ferry.

Selfie studios in Singapore are getting increasingly common and tend to sport similar themes, but what makes Parallel Egos stand out is the fact that they don’t stick to the status quo. Like the others, they too offer free usage of outfits, along with hair styling and makeup services, but their set-ups are quite out of the ordinary!

Eating regular round tang yuan is always enjoyable but it’s definitely a plus if it comes in cute shapes! Learn the art of making your very own rice dumplings with a hands-on workshop at Universal Studios, conducted by food artist Samantha Mantou. You’ll be learning the basics from scratch, and picking up techniques on how to mould the flour into adorable shapes like a tiger, koi fish, orange, golden ingot, or flower-adorned money bag.

The tang yuan will be cooked on the spot, after which you’ll be savouring them with a bowl of sweet ginger soup.

As first-timers to tang yuan making, we were initially quite intimidated, but trust us - it’s not too tough once you start going through the steps on your own! That’s not to say that it’s overly easy, and we had a ton of fun tackling the challenge.
