“After plans” are always a problem after a night out with your friends or significant other. As Singaporeans, we tend to spend a long period of time discussing on after dinner activities. It can be a hassle to decide on one activity for everyone to agree on. On your next night out, here are some activities to consider.
An affordable, fun activity to enjoy would be bowling! It’s perfect for any weather condition, and suitable for anyone to play regardless of experience. It’s definitely one of my top few options to consider whenever my friends and I are out.
You can even conduct a mini competition with friends by splitting a larger group into different teams to see which scores better. You can spice it up with a little bet whereby the “losers” have to pay for drinks afterwards. The best part of bowling is that there are many bowling alleys found in tiny Singapore from Planet Bowl to Superbowl and so much more. Then again, conversations can be continued on from dinner as there is aplenty of time to have small talks while bowling (even when playing competitively)!

Time to test the fears of your friends with prawning since many might be afraid to even get near the baits and prawns! Prawning is an extremely chill and fun after-activity with your friends. It’s a good opportunity for heart-to-heart talks as well, since there will be a lot of waiting time for the prawns to take the bait. It might require a little bit of skills to capture even one prawn, but with a little bit of practice, anyone can do it!
I personally struggled with handling the prawns and the baits, and I’d always ensure that there’s one brave soul among my group of friends to handle the creatures. After a few occasions of prawning, I can safely say that these creatures don’t scare me anymore! Based on experience, here are some nice places to consider for prawning:
Orto is one of the more popular and go-to spots for many. It is conveniently located a walking distance from Khatib MRT. Since it’s a night activity, getting home is much easier since it’s located at a neighbourhood spot.
With reasonable price, you get to enjoy the activity and dig into the delicious prawns afterwards. Not to forget, the whole place is totally instagrammable too! You can check out more details on the place here.
