Here are 5 ways you can stay safe while celebrating National Day 2021

When people were preparing to hang their Singapore flags outside their hallways and doors a few weeks ago, many were probably surprised by the sudden changes in the Singapore government’s Covid-19 measures.

The country returned to phase 2 of the intensified alert (HA) from July 22 to August 18. The announcement came just half a month before Singapore’s National Day on August 9. This was done to contain the growing Covid-19 clusters linked to the Jurong fishing port.

This meant that the heart fireworks and Red Lions displays were also canceled for August 7-8.

Dining at home was prohibited, while social gathering groups were reduced from five to two people. Even this year The National Day parade has been postponed to August 21.

But that does not mean that our lion’s roar will cease. Activities can still be done safely at home, and we can still support the country in more ways than one this long weekend.

Vulcan Post has curated a list of activities you can take to celebrate the nation’s independence, while staying safe and minimizing your outdoor exposure.

Food nation

Singaporeans connect with food and our families connect better with food, too.

Ask any local what their parents usually ask them when they meet and it will be: “Have you eaten?”, “Jiak Ba Ox?” or “Ya Makan?”: these are basically the same questions but in different languages ​​due to our multicultural society.

This National Day, online stores offer food deals as they anticipate people gathering with members of their household for a meal.

The foodpanda food delivery app offers up to $ 40 discount on orders this National Day. This includes a $ 12 discount at restaurants with a minimum order of $ 20 quoting “NDPFR12”.

There is also $ 12 off their pandamart grocery spin-off with a minimum order of $ 20 using “NDPMART12” and $ 4 off self-pickup services with a minimum order of $ 12 using “NDPPU4”. This will continue until the end of September.

What’s more Singaporean than eating durians? Not just durian meat, but you can get that tasty morsel wrapped in snow skin dough and serve it cold.

Four Seasons offers 50% off four slices of durian moon cake for his Mao Shan Wang at $ 69 (UP $ 138). Customers can purchase up to two boxes per coupon, to be presented at checkout. Their Sultan Durian mooncakes are also half price at $ 44 (UP $ 88).

Mooncakes can only be redeemed at AMK Hub, NEX Serangoon, and Four Seasons Restaurant at Jewel Changi Airport until September 19. You can buy the coupons first and redeem them after Phase 2 HA ends.

Dunkin ‘Donuts also joins the celebrations by offering 12 donuts for the price of 9, from now until November 20. The deal is only valid at their Singapore outlets like AMK Hub and Waterway Point.

Celebrations often come with pizza and soft drinks for that casual dinner. Why not consider Pizza Hut’s Cheesy 7 pizza? Is providing 56 percent of your Cheesy 7 Pizza if you buy two of them.

The pizza is crispy on the outside and smooth on the inside, and the cheese mix includes cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, and more. The deal ends on August 15. Apply “SGBDAY56” at checkout.

If you want a pizza that has a more local vibe, Mad for Garlic offers a free choice of pizza with a minimum purchase of $ 30 in items from the a la carte menu. The store sells 12-inch pizzas with flavors like pumpkin spicy cream, mad tomyum, and garlic sweet potato.

Local online shopping

Do your part for the country by supporting local brands through your e-commerce platforms and marketplaces.

The Shopee e-market is having a National Day Sale from August 1 to 10. It is supporting over 100,000 local Shopee businesses and is launching group and daily buy deals. Brands include IRVINS salted egg fries, Hito bikes, and Prism televisions.

Meanwhile, local consumer electronics vendor Challenger’s Hachi Tech offers 10 percent of selected accessories like Belkin, Elecom and J5 Create to join the celebrations. Customers can use “NDP20201” at checkout.

This can also be a time to pamper yourself with some tonics while shopping for local produce. The health and wellness store offered by Brands up to $ 45 off store-wide. Special offers include 1 for 1 for their Essence of Chicken pills (60 tablets) which cost $ 29 (UP $ 58). The promotion will be available until the end of August.

For those who want to send packages to their loved ones, they can use Singpost’s SmartPac service offered up to 16 per dinnert out of the postage paid packaging. Users can use “NDPSMP16” at checkout. There is also a 15 percent discount on SingPost’s standard Speedpost services.

Get in shape virtually

If you’re feeling stressed out by the pandemic, you can join online exercise activities to relieve stress this holiday season.

Participate in this alignment and breathing therapy class within the framework of the Popular Association (PA). It will take place on August 8 from 9:30 to 10:30 through the online platform Zoom. PA members pay $ 2 while non-members pay $ 5.

The class will help teach alignment correction, as well as breath control, flexibility, and sustainability of body posture. Attendees will be guided on breathing and tips will be given on how to integrate breathwork into yoga poses.

Maybe you want to get in shape and train for a virtual race. The National University of Singapore is having a RUN BIG virtual race challenge and it is open for registration. Those who sign up can choose their preferred route area in different parts of Singapore. The race will only take place in September, after Phase 2 HA.

The current race available is the 19.05-kilometer competitive race, and those who sign up get items like a finisher shirt, digital certificate, and recyclable bag.

Entertainment 24/7

For those addicted to television, Singtel offers three months of Lifestyle Plus free on its Singtel CAST streaming service.

You can stay home and watch shows from popular international channels like AFN, Food Network, and HGTV. Singtel said that no contract is required and that users can cancel at any time.

Singtel CAST Lifestyle Plus will only be charged from the fourth month onwards. The deal is valid until the end of September and non-Singtel customers can sign up for a 30-day trial via their credit cards.

If you prefer to play games and watch HD programs, Telco M1 offers three months of free fiber broadband with a new Keppel Electric two-year plan or by contract for a 24-month fiber plan. The deal is valid until the end of the year.

Special celebrations

This long weekend may be the right opportunity to celebrate with someone special. Local jeweler Vella Diamonds is giving a five percent discount All engagement rings and customers can also enjoy a free two-day, one-night stay at a 4 or 5-star hotel.

Staying home doesn’t mean staying home forever, so why not take time to plan ahead for what you want to do in the coming months as we adjust to “living with the pandemic”? This could be the time to plan your next vacation. Traveloka is promoting up to 20% discount for your flight, hotel or Xperience – activities and attractions service – reservations.

Customers can tap their SingapoRediscovers coupons with a minimum transaction of $ 10. The deal is until the end of December. Offers include SEA Aquarium and farm tours.

Resilience in the face of the Singapore pandemic

About 3.2 million people in Singapore are fully vaccinated as of July 28, and that represents 57 percent of the population.

By National Day, Singapore aims to fully vaccinate 67 percent of its population. Singapore is currently on track to meet that target, as well as its September target of 80 percent.

Image Credit: Suhaimi Abdullah, Getty Images

By September, Singapore would have one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, and that places the country in a “solid position to move towards a society resilient to Covid-19.”

This suggests a greater openness of the country and Singapore is likely to hope to have a more normal life ahead. We expect perhaps even the resumption of the travel bubble talks with Taiwan and Hong Kong.

To achieve these dreams, we will have to work together and stay safe. Stay strong Singapore and we will get through these tough times.
