4 Ready To Rumble Activities For You

Games that involve plenty of contact can create an adrenaline rush in our bodies, allowing us to enjoy ourselves. It is easier to forge a connection with your peers when there is already a physical one through playing close contact activities. So without further ado, let me introduce you to these activities.

Photo Zone

The game is simple with two teams. There will be an elevated platform positioned such that once players stand on; the camera will photograph them. As such the objective of the game is to do whatever it takes to let your face be captured by the camera, which involves climbing on to the platform. If you are wondering why this game sounds familiar, it is because it is from the Running Man Series (Anyone remembers Kang Gary’s calm look J). Two teams will get extremely chummy with each other and it is a nice way to compete with one another for any team building activity. Furthermore, there is no need for a photo session after that because you would already have nice pictures of the game.

Bubble Bump

Well, even though players are encased in the bubble suits, the blood rush that surges through the head is no less than any sports activity. No other game in our huge selection of games can offer a similar experience to the bounciness of Bubble Fun. If players didn’t actually play in the bubble suits, this game actually would be even more dangerous than rugby. So this can very well be considered a high impact contact sport, which is safe for everyone. There are many variations of this game, one of which is the ever-popular Bubble Soccer, if you want to have a blast, book a session with us by clicking here!

Bullet Ball

This exciting game of Bullet Ball (A.K.A Dodge Ball) may seem very basic at first, but the simpler the game the more fun it is. Everyone can instantly play at his or her best capabilities since there is no learning curve for such a game. The objective of the game is to avoid the balls thrown at you and to attack at your opponents by hurling balls at them either to the last man standing or until the designated ‘Queen’ is hit. Easy huh? The ball is on your court so try it out now!

Sumo Wrestling

This works in a very similar way to Bubble Bump. While Bubble suits are heavier and bulkier, the armour in Sumo Wrestling has now shrunk to the size of the fats of the Sumo Wrestler. This increases the amount of contact between Sumo players without endangering them. There are many ways to play this but so far the game modes are a 1v1 format. Players could either play this like a Sumo Wrestling match fashion where players toss each other out of the ring or they could run from point A to B to answer questions. What’s more, players will look more comical than ever, so it is fun both on and off the ring.

4 Ways to enjoy the FIFA World Cup

Once every four years, the world goes into an uproar cheering for their favourite soccer teams. Singaporeans are no exception from the rest of the world. The World Cup gives us a great time for us to catch up with our friends, colleagues and family with the game we all love, like a national day holiday but once every four years. There are many ways to follow the event and enjoy the atmosphere, so we are here with you to share with you how.

1. Couch Potato Style

Pretty self-explanatory is it not? Pull out some chips from the cupboard, open a can of beer and start cheering for your team! Do this together with your family members or your friends, as they say, the more the merrier so take some time out and watch Messi’s helpless attempt at carrying the Argentine team. Nothing beats the luxury of watching soccer in the company of your closed ones and at the comfort of your own home. This is a rare quadrennial event, so despite everyone’s busy schedule, try to take some time out with the people you treasure. If you are like me and have no cable television, here is the schedule of the free matches that are showed live on television.

2. Live Public Screening

There are few places to do this. If you would like a nice seat and don’t mind paying some money for it, you could always head down to the bars, most of them are showing the matches live. And if you want a free live public screening, there are 55 community clubs showing all the matches live for free. Some of the community clubs even have games like Subbuteo (A table soccer game) that aims to create a festive atmosphere for the local community to enjoy this occasion. So if you want to head out, why not head to one of these places to soak in the FIFA World Cup atmosphere?

3. Do It Yourself

Well, as fans watching from behind the screens, we often lash out at players, “Even I can shoot better than you!” Perhaps you can try it yourself. I am kidding, but still, it would be a good thing if people could meet up to play the game itself. It will be a fun day out, sweating it out and having an enjoyable time together out on the pitch. Possibly even reminding you of the good old days of playing soccer together with your old friends. You can play soccer at any time, but now is probably the best time to bring it up since the world cup fever is still hanging around for quite awhile to go.

4. Bubble Soccer

My earlier recommendation was strictly for soccer players. Not all of us can play soccer, or that we know enough people who do, and hence my next suggestion, Bubble Soccer. While not exactly soccer, there is still a ball with two goal posts so it would be a good alternative. Everyone can partake in this easy game of Bubble Soccer and it would be a fun day out to commemorate the world cup of 2018. You could even use this opportunity as a team building activity for your workplace or just an outing with the friends or family. Click here to book your fun now!

The Science Behind Bubbles

Bubbles. Who doesn’t know about bubbles? It’s such a fascinating sight to see bubbles floating in the air. Bubbles can be found nearly everywhere with soap. But how do bubbles actually form? You might have thought about it in the shower, but the question slips off your mind once you are out of the toilet. How do bubbles form? Why do bubbles pop?

 

Bubbles are air enclosed in soap film, which is made from soap and water. The soap film has 2 layers: the soap layer and the water layer. There is a thin layer of water between the soap molecules to hold them together to form the soap film, to allow the bubbles to stay intact.

 

Have you ever wondered why bubbles are round? It all boils back down to physics. Bubbles aims to be in the smallest possible shape for the amount of air that is trapped inside the soap film, and sphere has the minimise the surface area the most compared to other shapes. When you blow a bubble, it might start off in all sorts of shapes, but once the soap film joins back together and the bubble starts to float, it will automatically return to its spherical shape!

 

Sadly, every bubble has their own mini life span. Either they get popped by someone, or they somehow pop on their own. But why do bubbles pop on their own? Is there an unseen force that pops them? Nope. When the surface of the soap film evaporates, the water molecules decreases, and once there are not enough water to hold the soap molecules together, the bubble pops. Bubbles actually take a longer time to pop in cold weather as the water does not evaporate as fast, and it might even freeze over if its cold enough! Not only so, the colder the temperature, the higher the bubble will float due to the air inside the bubble. Your breath has a higher temperature than the outside temperature, and since hot air rises, the bubble will naturally float up higher.

 

You’ve probably learnt a thing or two about how bubbles form, so why not be inside a bubble this time for a change? You’ll definitely have tons of fun with wearing a bubble suit and bumping into each other! Book now!

How to stop Procrastinating

Have you ever reached a stage whereby you feel like you are drowning in all your work? Maybe you feel like your work is never ending, and before you even finish anything on hand, more comes and you start to feel overwhelmed. You see your table pile up, and one day, you had enough. You decide to clear everything as fast as possible, but the massive pile makes you want to procrastinate even more. So how do you stop procrastinating and start doing? Here are 5 steps to help you get you back to your A-game!

  1. Write a whole list of what you need to do

Yes. Even if the pile looks massive and messy and unorganized. You need to start by getting yourself together before getting your work together. Write out a list of what you need to do and so that everything is covered. It’s definitely best to write it on a piece of paper, as traditional methods always tend to make you feel more compelled to do.

  1. Categorize them according to importance or difficulty

You might be able to skip this step, but it’s best to categorize them according to importance to see which one you should start first. Always do the one that’s the most important/urgent. But if you don’t have a specific date to do by for all, do the easiest one first. It works for different people but I like to finish the easiest work first to tick things off the checklist.

  1. Plan your day

You only have a limited number of hours at work, and I’m sure no one wants to bring his or her work home to do, or do OT. Section your time realistically to finish your work. Don’t leave too little time for something that takes a few hours, or leave too much time for something that takes only a few minutes. Plan your time well and you will get your stuff done in no time!

  1. Start doing them and tick them off the list

Yup, just start. Don’t procrastinate anymore after planning, and tick them off. Ticking them off helps you get a better sense of the remaining work left, and also makes you feel better about yourself for clearing your work!

  1. Repeat

Congratulations! You are done clearing your work! But while you were clearing your overdue work, new work continues to come in and fill up your desk again. Regardless, at least you don’t have old + new workload, and that’s great! Repeat the steps all over again, and once you are fast enough, you will definitely reach a point where you finish your work.

 

But if you ever feel jaded from constantly working and need a break from working with your colleagues, there are many activities that you can do with them to de-stress and have fun, such as Bubble Bump, Combat Archery Tag, and more! Work hard, play hard, and balance your life well.
