2) Netflix Marathon
People are being quarantined or self-isolating, which means they are trapped at home with hours to fill. In other words, conditions are perfect for a marathon binge-watch. Here’s are some of our recommendations for Netflix for this CB.
The Witcher (IMDb rating: 8.4/10)
The Witcher features a fantastical setting where you will find elves, dwarfs, and a range of incredible monsters. The protagonist, Geralt of Rivia, is played by Superman actor Henry Cavill. Geralt is a mutated, supernatural monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. Geralt gets caught between two warring human nations: the Nilfgaardian Empire and Northern Kingdoms. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a special gift, the three must learn to navigate independently the increasingly volatile Continent.
Crash Landing on You (IMDb rating: 9.1/10)
Finally a K-drama that deviate from the usual rich, detached guy falling for the innocent, naive girl narrative. Yoon Se-Ri (Son Ye-Jin) is an heiress to a conglomerate in South Korea. Follow Yoon Se-Ri as she literally crash land while paragliding, an accident caused by strong winds to make an emergency landing in North Korea. There, she meets Ri Jeong-Hyeok (Hyun-Bin), who is a North Korean army officer. He tries to protect her and hide her.
3) Read At Home
If you are too busy with work or unable to spend time with your family, you can always arrange for meaningful activities for your kids to do at home. One of the activity could be reading. The traditional way to read is via hardcopy book but there is another popular and interesting alternative, that is reading with a Amazon Kindle e-book reader.
An Amazon Kindle e-book reader capable of storing up thousands of books in a portable hand-held device, you and your kids will never run out of stories to read this holiday. You will also never run out of places to keep all those books too. There is an app dictionary within Amazon Kindle to help you and your children's dictionary, whatever words that they are unsure of, Amazon Kindle can easily help with.
This is done simply by highlighting and holding the word for few seconds, then the dictionary pop up will appear. In addition, reading can also aid relaxation and reduce stress and anxiety, increase empathy, and promote good sleeping habits. Foster reading routines for you and your kids from this May school holiday. Most importantly, the Kindle display does not emit any harmful blue rays, letting you and your kids enjoy reading without damaging your eyes or feeling fatigue. Definitely better than reading off a smartphone or tablet and is very popular among adults and children here in Singapore as shown below.
