We all have those moments when we miss our friends after not seeing them for what feels like eternity but when we actually meet them, we might find ourselves feeling that we should be doing something rather than just sitting on our phones together with the occasional conversation sliding in.
Here’s a list of 5 things you could do with your friends the next time you find yourself bored:
1. Have a picnic
Forget about the hassle of planning a picnic, we live in 2022 where it’s as easy as pushing a button – because that’s all you actually have to do. Head over to their Instagram where you can rent out a picnic set. They have a wide variety of different themed sets, including a Malaysian themed set.
2. Have a home spa day
Most of the ingredients you have in your kitchen surprisingly have amazing benefits for your skin. Ingredients such as honey, turmeric and milk have been used for thousands of years for their benefits for your skin. Make a whole day out of it and make a homemade face mask, paint each others nails and do a home hair treatment together.
3. Host a “board night”
Board nights became popular on tiktok a while back. The concept is taken from charcuterie boards and became a trend to host an event where everyone brings a board filled with a variety of foods that suits the theme of their board. Some fun ideas for different types of food boards are s’mores boards, sour candy boards, pizza boards and so many more. Top it all off with some board games like monopoly, scrabble or catan.
4. Binge watch movies you haven’t watched before
Create a list of movies that you and your friends have all never seen before and watch as many of them as you can together. If you have difficulties finding movies that everyone hasn’t watched, then try starting a new series together and getting through as many episodes as you possibly can. If you want to make the experience more unique, then hire a projector and set up the place to make it feel more special. You can also prepare some snacks with your friends like popcorn or nachos.
5. Hop on the LRT and get off at a random station
Set aside a budget of how much money you would like to spend for that day, then take the lrt with your friends and get off at a stop you don’t normally take. Explore the area and see what you can do within your budget. This gives you a great chance to discover an unfamiliar area and you might just find a new hang out spot.
