Ah, National Day. Time to belt out patriotic songs that are strangely comforting just as much as they are cheesy, watch fireworks displays, and raise your flags in the air like you just don’t care. You can easily watch the ever-popular pyrotechnic displays from one of the many good vantage points around the city – or if you loathe crowds, watch them from the comfort of your own hotel room. Do note that this year's parade has been rescheduled to August 21, so the usual display of fireworks won't be setting off as per annual traditions. Still, you can treat yourself to a good ol' National Day staycation, and treat yourself to a relaxing getaway.

It is easy to get into a patriotic state of mind with the Slay, Stay, and Play package ($156) from Hotel G. Running from now through August, the locally themed staycation comes packed with goodies and treats from homegrown brands you can enjoy. 

Rest easy in a Great Room, and be greeted by a thoughtfully curated swag box (you get to keep the contents, of course). Take a break from the screen and spend some time playing with two board games inspired by local culture: the newly launched Hawker Wars, made by the creators of Singaporean Dream; as well as Kopi King where players can concoct – through cards – their favourite beverage. 

The skin needs some pampering, too, and the Dream Capsule from Sigi Skin provides a sample of the brand’s well-loved overnight mask, an antioxidant-rich, plant-based cream that will leave skin feeling nourished and smooth. And to help you get through the rest of the week, bring home a box of coffee Nespresso-compatible capsules from Jewel Coffee. 

And while dining out isn’t allowed for now, the stay comes with a meal set for two from 25 Degrees Burger and Liquor Bar that can be delivered straight to the room. Chow down on juicy stacks of satay burger, with spice-coated chicken laced with chunky peanut sauce, then wash everything down with the creamy chendol milkshake spiked with gula Melaka. Nurse the food coma with a comfy slumber on the king bed, and laze all the way till 2pm (thanks to the complimentary late check-out). 

The Slay, Stay, and Play package ($156) is available from now till August 31 at hotelgsingapore.com.
