You know that feeling when your alarm clock rings, you struggle out of bed and hobble to the bathroom… only to realise it’s Saturday? That moment of clarity – aka ‘pure happiness’ – is what makes weekends so damn precious and sacred. But precious and sacred things should not be sacrificed at the altar of your bed.
Head out instead. Spend a day eating your way through a neighbourhood. Get your toes wet kayaking. Hop on a ferry and explore a nearby islet. Take in some public art and admire facets of our heritage. Or, if it’s soft mattresses and sheets you truly desire, check into a hotel for a quick staycation.
