What To Watch, Listen To, And Try This Weekend (March 27 – 29)
Now that bars, clubs, and cinemas are closed, and gatherings are being limited to 10 people, you probably need something to do this weekend. So here are our recommendations for what to stream, read, listen, and try at home.
If you miss travelling….
Stream: J-Style Trip
Now isn’t a good time to go overseas, k, even with all the discounted flights and hotel packages. Scratch that travel itch by streaming Jay Chou’s new variety show, where he and celebrity bros Jam Hsiao and JJ Lin jet-set around the world playing music and doing magic tricks. New episodes are released weekly, so you can “visit” Paris with Jie Lun Ge weekend, and explore Australia, Austria, and other faraway destinations in the weeks to come.
Available on Netflix
How about watching sports?
Watch: Competitive marble racing
With no Olympics, no football games, and no NBA to distract you, now is the perfect time to get into competitive marble racing, which was started by YouTubers Jelle and Dion Bakker. As random as it sounds, this is THRILLING stuff, thanks to the enthusiastic voiceovers, which are done like a sports commentary. And FYI, Marbula One (Formula 1 for marbles) 2020 is currently ongoing, and we’re fully on board Team Galactic.

Perhaps you’ve been feeling a little anxious
Read: Maybe You Should Talk To Someone
It seems like everyone’s feeling a little stressed nowadays. So how about a little therapy by way of a book?
