3 Things You Can Do with Your Friends While Staying Home

Staying home due to the pandemic, and hanging out with friends virtually

Miss spending time with your friends? Read on for ideas on what you and your friends can do during the Phase 2 Heightened Alert!


Last Tuesday (20 July 2021), the government announced that Singapore will return to Phase 2 (heightened alert) due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases. With social gatherings capped at two and dining-in suspended, many of us are back to being in the comfort and safety of our own homes. 

However, for those of us who had to cancel your plans to meet up with friends, this news may be dreadful for you. But fret not, because here are three things you can do with friends virtually! 



Staying home this season does not necessarily mean that you have to binge watch movies alone. Grab your friends and stream drama series or movies on Netflix using Teleparty! 

Teleparty is a streaming service available on the Chrome web store that synchronizes video playbacks and adds group chats to streaming sites. It is compatible with Netflix, Disney+ and HBO, so you are guaranteed to find something to watch with your friends. If you are not sure of which movies to stream together, you can check out some of our recommendations here.

To get as close as you can to the actual cinema experience, snack on some popcorn while streaming movies together! At The Kettle Gourmet, we have curated popcorn bundles that are suitable for all. One of them is the Stay at Home Care Package - the Lockdown 2.0 Family Care Package, where you can pick 2 family packs and 4 snack monsters of your preferred flavours. 

So why choose between sweet and savoury when you can have the best of both worlds? Simply key in your preferred flavours when checking out with our Lockdown 2.0 Family Care Package and have it delivered to your doorsteps with our popcorn delivery service.

You can have 4 snack monsters and 2 family packs in flavours of your choice! This bundle is great for in times of the pandemic where we are required to stay home.


Sweat it out together

With the default work from home measures in place, staying active and healthy can be a huge struggle. Do it together with friends and encourage one another by following online workout videos together! Simply get on YouTube to search for a workout that is suitable for you and your group of friends and do it together over a video call.

Angels and Mortals - Food Delivery Edition 

Bring back the old-school game of angels and mortals, but with a slight twist! The rule of this game is simple: Each person is a guardian angel to someone else in the group. Their goal is to bless a mortal (another friend) by sending him/her food or snacks. Through this game, you can send comfort foods to your friends and have your own food cravings satisfied as well. 

If you are looking for a special snack to be sent to your mortal, The Kettle Gourmet’s unique selection of popcorn will be a great choice! Enjoy free delivery with a minimum spending of $50 and have our popcorn sent to your friends.

On top of the classic favourites like salted caramel and chocolate, we carry local-infused flavours of popcorn Singapore citizens love! These include Chilli Crab, Kaya Butter Toast, Nasi Lemak and Chicken Floss.  If you are spoilt for choices, get the Assorted Singles Bundle and your friend can enjoy the divine selection of our popcorn that will make them go Eureka! 

This bundle features all flavours of our popcorn in our Snack monsters, and is great for those who are looking to try out all the unique popcorn flavours!
