It's day 3 of the circuit breaker and we've already seen too many of the following words: self-quarantine, social distancing and #WFH. On the bright side, if the pandemic has brought us anything good, it's allowed us to slow down a little, extend our sleep, and spend more time with our loved ones (okay, maybe this one goes either way).
These unprecedented times have surely changed our daily routines, which can drive anyone a little stir-crazy. Especially with the impact on our social lives, being cooped up in our homes has enlarged our appetite for entertainment. So we at Esquire Singapore are here to give you what you ask for.
Esquire Wine Time
With our brand new Instagram Live series, we will show you how to stay in the Esquire way. Keep your body, mind and soul engaged, revitalized and stimulated through bite-sized 15 minute sessions hosted by editor-in-chief Norman Tan—all from the comfort of your humble abode.
Discover a new hobby, brush up on a long-lost skill, learn from subject-matter experts or awaken your curiosity on those passions that have been put on the back burner—and with each episode stand to win a bottle of Penfolds Bin 311, 2 or 389 delivered right to your doorstep.
