Throw a House Party.

Going to parties, eating out with friends and family at the suya spot or shawarma spot is always cool and fun no doubt. However, have you tried a homemade barbecue chicken or grilled fish from the back of your house with some loud music and friends?

Cooking at home might seem stressful but on the flip side, it is way cheaper and you get to choose your own variety and boom! Party!

Dining time also allows you to spend time with the family and friends in your comfort zone.

Karaoke over Music Concerts

Good music can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime. So why spend so much on a concert ticket during this period when you can easily walk into a local pub and have quality fun singing and miming all your favourite songs with your friends and family members?

Yeah! You heard that right. Sleep.

Sometimes, we get entangled with fun, outdoor activities and neglect how beneficial good sleep can be to the body and mind during this holiday period.

Perhaps, the best way to fall asleep is to watch a movie while munching on some snacks, quite therapeutic. You’ll certainly feel refreshed after.
