Thread: What other activities/hobbies to pick up in Singapore?

  1. #1

    Default What other activities/hobbies to pick up in Singapore?

    Just been transferred back to singapore and finding it really bored over the weekends and at nite...and I am more into travel photography so dont really feel like shooting in singapore... anyways...wonder what are some of the hobbies/activites I can pick up over here that might just inject new breath into life back home?

    I love outdoor sports like snorkelling, white water rafting etc but these activities which you can't do that regularly over here, requiring taking leave etc..

    Besides the more common forms of sports like football, badminton, basketball etc, music lessons, martial arts, language lessons etc, any other suggestions?

    go scuba diving! weekend trips to malaysia leave you feeling nice and refreshed with something to look forward to every week.

    beware: do not combine photography and scuba diving. you may lose your home, car, wife, and even your dog.

    If you are the outdoors type, perhaps you can hook up with the Singapore Adventurers Club www.sac.org.

    try exploring the parks in Singapore. Might keep you occupied for awhile, try upp seletar (check out the OCBC skybridge, etc), lower seletar, labrador, etc. Been doing that for the past few weeks.

    BTW, what's wrong with doing travel photography in Singapore? Just imagine yourself going around Singapore shooting like you are travelling? Explore various places as if you have never been there before. Its like when you were first transferred overseas......


    Best thing to waste time...........kopitiam in clubsnap...
