Thank God it’s Friday, isn’t it? After the weeklong tasks in the office and/or school, somehow, Friday reminds us that “this too, shall pass”. But as we are about to celebrate our freedom from our gargantuan tasks, we are dawned by the truth that we have nowhere to go and that we are just about to idle the weekend away- in our home doing nothing but browsing through our friend’s profiles in Facebook. What a bummer, isn’t it?
So, here are some things that you and your family can go to this weekend. Delight yourselves with these attractions for free! Yes, you heard it. Have fun without hurting your wallet. Enjoy and we hope that these events can rejuvenate your mind (maybe, body, too (?)).
