This National Day Special, take a trip down memory lane and look back on some of our favourite national pastimes that have withstood the test of time, and have carved themselves into every Singaporean’s heart over the years. Take a breather and enjoy what this little red dot has to offer!
1. Swimming at neighbourhood swimming complexes
Any bona fide Singaporean would remember their days as a kid, when weekend highlights included their parents bringing them for a morning swim at the neighbourhood swimming complex. These facilities built in the 60s have an old, nostalgic charm, and have evolved from mere lap pools to exciting water parks complete with slides over the years. This National Day, head down to visit some of these swimming complexes, old or new, and be guaranteed a splashing good time!
Keep track of time even when underwater with this durable BERING titanium timepiece. Made from stainless steel and titanium, this number has an impressive 10 ATM water resistance, ensuring that it stays fully function while you swim or even snorkel!
2. Savouring Hawker Fare
Imagine a Singapore without hawker centres – don’t worry, we can’t either. Over the years, this gastronomical culture has grown to become a true local trademark. The humble hawker centre has become an integral part of our lives and is the place to go for a hearty and affordable meal. Celebrate the ninth of August with some local delights this National Day, but don’t say we didn’t warn you - good food only comes to those who are willing to brave through the heat, fumes and crowds rampant in this local food haven.
You don’t have to compromise on style and comfort even when at hawker centres with the BERING Ceramic Link timepiece. Made from high-tech ceramic, watches from the Ceramic Collection also have a permanently waterproof feature, and are extremely resistant to scratches – so resistant that only a diamond can cut it. Roughing it out for dinner at the neighbour hawker joint? Don’t sweat it, because this watch is ultra-hardy. Available in white with silver and rose gold links.
3. Chilling at neighbourhood parks
Renowned for being a garden city, Singaporeans are no strangers to greeneries and parks. Despite our small size, Singapore is home to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Developed in 1859, the Garden showcases an impressive collection of tropical flora and fauna. Our estates are also linked by a local network of park connectors. Lazy weekends relishing in Mother Nature’s embrace is now just a stone’s throw away!
Go green with this BERING Max Rene watch dressed in a cheeky shade of khaki! Paired with a cool silver bezel, incorporate this watch with your wardrobe staples for a subtle pop of colour.
