Snuggle Up to a Book
Whichever genre of books fits your taste, why not create a ‘two people’ book reading club! Text Book Center will give you a wide variety of books to choose from.
Time To Keep Fit
When you have someone to keep you on your toes, keeping fit at home can be a fun thing to do together. Make sure you check the offers on home work out essentials and work out gear at The Junction Mall’s Sports PlanetStore, Miniso, MRP Apparel or LC Waikiki and come up with a fitness journey that will be enjoyable to both you.
Plan a Fantasy Vacation Together
If you have some cash to spare, why not start saving up for a dream vacation you’ll go to once everything returns to normalcy? Standard Chartered Bank has a savings account that is just dedicated to this – The Safari Savings Account. You can ring up The Junction Mall branch to get more information and set up your account.
Pizza and Wine Night
Order your favourite pizza from any of the eateries at The Junction Mall (Artcaffe, Big Square or Pizza Inn), spread out a blanket on the floor, bring some wine and wind down over some relaxing music or while watching your favourite movie?
Date Night Board/Video Games
An alternative for a fun evening would be to have a game night. Get a board or video game where you can team up against each other for an enjoyable competitive night. You can get the games from The Junction Mall’s Text Book Center and Gamechanger respectively.
