Cozy Activities for Rainy Days
Hello rainy season! Here are cozy ways to have fun even when it pours ;)
The recent cold spell seems to be all everyone has been able to talk about lately! We love rainy days. They're a good excuse to chill out indoors, and do something that's good for the soul. Here are some cozy activities for your next rainy afternoon (mainly chilled, with some alcohol thrown in!).
Roast a Cuppa & Brunch!
If you're looking for a cooler alternative to cafe-hopping, head down to this secret brunch spot!
Here you'll roast your own coffee in a snug and quaint boho-themed lounge. You'll get to see a live coffee plant, roast raw coffee beans over a live fire, grind them up and so much more! You can then pick a nice corner to have yourself a lovely brunch (with your roasted cuppa and some bagels + churros ☕🥯) Do it with friends or by yourself - it's super therapeutic either way.
Warm up at Singapore's Original Gin Distillery
Whether you love or hate gin, this is a really fun way to spend the afternoon as you'll learn (and drink!) a ton! Here you'll get to smell gin ingredients and later identify them in the gins, try out homemade bitters (with cool flavours like szechuan peppers and cinnamon), and get to taste a LOT of drinks. You'll leave a little tipsy, and plenty warm. Rain, what rain?
Learn Granny's Cooking Secrets in Kampung Home
We don’t know about you, but we’ve been really craving hearty home-cooked food these rainy afternoons in Singapore. More than just a simple cooking class, one of our favourite things about this experience is that you’ll get to experience modern kampong living here. One Kind House brings back the spirit of a kampung house, where food is farm-to-table and doors are always open for friendly neighbours to pop in to pick a plant or two. Trust us, an afternoon here will leave you with a full tummy and a fuller heart.
Paint & Play a Ukulele
Ukuleles make us really happy. They evoke happy summer days in Rom Coms to us, even when it's rainy out. In this 3 hour unique art jamming session, you'll learn to paint & play a ukulele! Spending an afternoon painting & learning to play a ukulele will definitely put a smile on your face. And yes, you'll get to keep the ukulele!
Learn Rug Tufting
On the next rainy afternoon, try out the viral TikTok design trend of 2021! In this light-filled studio, you won't even notice that it's pouring outside. Tufting is one of our favourite new activities as it is surprisingly meditative and also incredibly forgiving. Regardless of whether you have any experience in sewing or crafting, you'll be able to make a gorgeous rug here.

Deemed as the medicine of the future, the waves of sound at this class will calm your nervous system and restore harmony in your body.

And, what better way to spend your next rainy afternoon than to light up your own customised candle?
Learn the Potter's Wheel at Lovely Studio
There are few things more meditative to us than using the potter's wheel. There's little else to focus on here other than moulding the clay slowly and gently on the potter's wheel - if your mind wanders, your clay will quickly get wonky! This is perfect for a rainy afternoon date with a significant other or friends. You will also be the proud owner of your very own own cups/ bowls after this session! 😍
Channel Jackson Pollock and Splat!
This is a cool twist on art jamming - here's a chance for you to get messy, to express, to play with your art masterpiece and splat your paint on the wall! Think Jackson Pollock and splatter like a master :)

This is super cool if you love making things with your hands. This is a silversmithing beginners course where students will make pieces of their own design in 925 silver - i.e.: pendants, earrings rings, etc. Learn all the basics of jewellery making and you'll get to bring home a final piece in 925 Silver.
Learn Yummy Korean Home Cooking!
We love home-cooked meals, and a Korean home-cooked meal is even more special because we don't get to have it very often at all! Here you'll get to learn from a Korean chef how to recreate mouthwatering Korean dishes, with the yumminess that only homecooking can offer. Your host Yoonsun not only loves sharing her passion for Korean cuisine, she'll also tell you the stories behind each recipe! And after that, you'll get to enjoy your meal with your friends/family in her cozy home. We can't think of a more heartwarming way to spend an evening.
Have Fun Axe Throwing
This is a really cute one to do on a date. Our friends love this axe throwing session so much that they've done this on multiple date nights! Axe throwing is a surprisingly a great way to have fun and is both silly and therapeutic at the same time. It's also great exercise!

You can then bring your bottle home to light up and enjoy a therapeutic night in (*meditation in progress... 🧘🏻♀️🕯️*)
Cocktail Making + Mexican Meal
We all know that Chimichanga does some of the best cocktails in Singapore, but we didn't know until recently that they also taught cocktail making. Our favourite part? You get to head to a market beforehand to source for ingredients for your custom cocktails. After making the cocktails, you'll also get yummy tacos to enjoy with your cocktails! Perfect for birthdays and special dates.
