In these trying times, everyone is doing their best to cope with the sudden changes in our routine and lifestyle brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. No matter how quick or slow we ride the “new normal” wave, one thing is sure — we are all trying to adjust the best way we can.
Some of us have revisited passions that, for the longest time, were pushed to the back of our minds or the bottom of our priorities. Some have been trying to explore new hobbies and discover new skills to make better use of our time, distract us from what’s happening, or trying out a new project or business idea.
If you want to take advantage of this time to learn a new skill, Klook has launched its Home-Based Experiences, including DIY activities and virtual workshops. Here are some of the Klook-curated workshops and projects. We also provided links where you can see the details and book.
