While we’re all adjusting to the new normal here at BAZAAR, one of the things we’ve all been looking forward to is the upcoming Easter weekend break that’ll give us plenty of time to recharge and enjoy the simpler things.

Whether it’s testing out new baking skills or escaping in the pages of a good old-fashioned novel, here we share all the different activities the team will be getting up to at home.

This stay at home directive has awoken the Nigella Lawson in me, so these white chocolate dipped strawberries will be tested and tasted for the most sinfully decadent treat for the Easter weekend.

Charmaine Ho, Executive Editor

When you’ve got a 4-year girl cooped up at home, you’ve got to get creative. So I’ve planned an Easter Unicorn 3 day weekend for us with a ton of activities to keep us entertained – easter egg painting, unicorn cupcake baking, indoor rainbow picnics and fairy scavenger hunt included.

Visionary Women, Mud And Stars, Let It Go

I will be hanging out with Russian poets, visionary women and a decluttering guru. They’re all on my reading list and I can’t wait to get started. Nothing beats the company of a good book when you have to stay home and practise social distancing.

I will use this opportunity to channel my inner domestic goddess to whip up homemade breads.

Windy Aulia, Creative Director

This long weekend we will be doing some exercise and by that I meant sweating it out doing some Marie Kondo magic to our storage room.

I will be spending my time trying to catch up on my reading. I’ve a backlog of international magazines, like Purple fashion magazine and System, to plow through!

Cold Brew

I will be spending my Easter weekend trying to experiment making cold brew coffee and also accept a challenge from a friend to make #dalgonacoffee at home. Keep calm and drink coffee!

I’ll be spending the long weekend making my way through the Studio Ghibli library that recently dropped on Netflix. These animation classics are the perfect blend of escapism, feels and food porn.

We love heading outside whenever there’s a chance to, but with the Circuit Breaker in place, we’ll have to find things to entertain the baby with! “Crafting” maybe? Wish us luck.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

I’ll be spending all of my time playing Final Fantasy VIII: Remake. The last version of this game was in 1997 and I’m looking forward to reliving the storyline with improved gameplay and graphics.

Shermin Ng, Senior Digital Writer

I’ll be taking the time to unplug and practice some much needed self-care — trying out some new yoga poses, enjoying the virtual company of my friends, and finally decluttering my room.

Stephanie Yeong, Contributing Associate Editor

I’ll be taking this extended weekend to catch up with Mummy—and hopefully pick up a trick or two on how to whip up those traditional Thai dishes she does so well!

It’s been months since I’ve indulged in a sinfully decadent slice of chocolate cake, and when better than Easter Weekend to do so? I’ll be spending my Sunday whipping up Nigella Lawson‘s old fashioned chocolate cake to share with my family.

Margaux Levy, Intern

Since my order of Lush bath bombs has just arrived, I’m planning to unwind with a relaxing bath this weekend. Probably will go with the new Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb that’s been released just in time for the Easter holidays!
