Who would’ve thought that, during lockdown, you could still enjoy a local jazz club’s cocktail hour, do a mind and body class with an Olympian, or do sound bath meditation with a Singapore DJ? Airbnb recently announced the launch of Online Experiences, allowing people to explore the world from home, while also giving their Experience hosts a way of continuing to earn an income.
Friends’ night out
If you’re planning a lockdown birthday party, scroll through websites like Quicket to find an online event, get your tickets, while also paying it forward to artists. Put a QR code on their live streams, scan it and donate to the streamer.
Celebrate in real-time
Zoom, Facetime or Google Meet your celebration. For example, birthday party guests just need a Google email address to sign up and enjoy video conferencing features like screen sharing, real-time captions and video layout toggle preferences.
Get into the vibe
Turn up with the biggest hits. Amapiano trip or stream any hotlist. If you prefer the beat of your drum, compile a unique playlist and share it with your friends to enjoy on your special occasion.
With current regulations allowing food delivery, treat yourself to a fancy dinner from one of your favourite spots. If you’re planning a birthday for someone, turn your dining room into a restaurant - write up a menu, set the scene with music, and light those candles. At least it’ll feel different from your usual meals. We all need a little love and consideration right now.
