Here’s a lobang for those who complain about running out of things to do in Singapore. First established in 2019, SG Spark Squad is a local community for youth to try new activities, express themselves, and expand one’s social circle through meaningful engagements. To make new experiences a more affordable affair for young Singaporeans, SG Spark Squad actually absorbs part of the activity costs.
The community also aims to promote purposeful bonding and expression, which you can tell from the SG Spark Squad Instagram page. Besides just posting cool pics, the IG account serves as a positive online community for open sharing of opinions and reflections.
In their first year alone, they managed to host over 50 hangouts, and fresh activity ideas are constantly being added to their line-up. And to celebrate their 2nd anniversary slash birthday bash, they’ll be offering a slew of discounted activities. All you have to do to enjoy the discounts is follow them on IG! Here are some examples of the activities you can try out:
Note: Pax restrictions apply, in accordance with the Covid-19 guidelines at the time of your shoot.
Choose between B&W or colour, with a variety of background colours available.

Photobooths and self-photography studios have been all the rage as of late. It’s like the early 2000s trend of Neoprints are making a resurgence, but in a more sophisticated and aesthetic manner – free of exaggerated filters and pastel drawings.

The shutter control will be handed to you and your photoshoot companions, and y’all can werk it like nobody’s watching as the studio staff leave you to your devices.
SG Spark Squad discount: 10% off weekday sessions with the promo code <PHOTOBYTESSS10> upon booking.

If you find yourself squealing with delight each time you encounter a stray cat, The Cat Cafe will fulfil your kitty cuteness meter tenfold. The owners of the establishment have made the cafe a safe and nurturing environment for its feline residents, all of whom are either re-homed strays or adopted after being abandoned by previous owners.
Besides sayang-ing the cats to your heart’s content, you can also savour cafe offerings such as coffee, tea, and an assortment of pastries. One thing’s for sure, this is probably the most ideal setting for you to meet fellow cat lovers.

One of the things many Singaporeans appreciate when travelling is the sight of street art and artistic expression in public spaces. We don’t get many opportunities for graffiti here, which is where Heaven Spot comes in.
They offer a different form of art jamming compared to the usual painting on a canvas. Visitors are given a set of spray paints as well as protective gear such as gas masks and coveralls, and the freedom to go wild on the wall panels.
Sky’s the limit as you get to tap into your creative side and channel your inner graffiti artist. This place is also great for artsy folks to broaden their social circle in a relaxed environment, and perhaps meet new people to go on activity-based hangouts with. Read all out about our experience in our Heaven Spot review.
SG Spark Squad discount: 15% off sessions throughout the month of November with the promo code <SGSSQ15>.
Valid till 30th November 2021.
