Are you bored out of your mind? 101 activities to do with your SO

I don't know about you, but sometimes life can get a bit stale (and stifling) especially now that travelling for leisure is a no-no.

In that sentiment, I compiled a list of 101 activities to do with your significant other (or friends and family).

I'm fairly certain that you have done some items on this list, but thought it would be nice to put them altogether for easy reference anyway. Hope it comes in handy~! 

Some activities are free, some require some $$$. Whether they are fun or not, wholly depends on you!

Feel free to suggest more activities in the comments too, we are very bored (!!!)


Both my partner and I want to lead a healthier lifestyle so we often go on 'active' dates. It kills two birds with one stone!

P.S. Made a wheel generator for those of you who can't even decide which of the nine types of activity you want to  do!

P.P.S BONUS! One kind of boliao activity that I enjoy is people watching. I also enjoy window shopping in the supermarket. Teehee.
