As we return to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), dining out won’t be possible for Singapore’s 56th birthday

This story was first published on July 26, 2021, and updated on August 2, 2021. 

With dine-in restrictions in place until August 18, we will once again be celebrating Singapore’s 59th birthday in the comforts of our homes. It is extremely disappointing given how far we have come along in our fight to beat Covid-19, but we just need to look at the positive side of things and think about the hard work the chefs have put in to plan the best National Day menus for delivery and takeaway.

Let us not forget about the bartenders who have also concocted amazing drinks that you can also enjoy in the comforts of your own home, while watching the National Day parade and programme on TV.
