You don’t have to spend a fortune to have a good time.
1. Plan your dream house
See any open house around your area? Spotted a poster for a new development? You can always pop by with your husband and have a long discussion about what the both of you can do to design the house by going from room to room. Tell him about your plan to have a walk-in closet in the master bedroom or installing a jacuzzi in the bathroom. These ideas may come in handy in the future if the both of you are planning to buy a new place.
2. Visit the bookstore
Here’s a fun idea you can do when you’re in the bookstore. Browse the Fiction and Literature section and choose a play or scene from a play and read it together line by line, each taking on one character. To make the game more challenging, go for the romance novels.
3. Go hiking
Immerse yourself in the nature by breaking a sweat or two at your nearby hiking trails. Not only you’ll get to marvel at the beauty of lush forest, it’s a healthy sports too. Thankfully, the city of Klang Valley has a numbers of hiking spots that you can check it out. So plan your journey with your husband for this coming weekend and go wild with it.
4. Road trip
What’s a better way to bond with someone than taking a road trip together? Since the both of you are all alone with minimal distraction, take this golden opportunity to bond with him, talk to him about work, your future plans and learn new things about each other. Or the both of you can also create a road trip mixtape together for a karaoke session in the car. Either way, you’re going to have so much fun on the road. If you’re looking for a quick getaway with the husband, here are some ideas on where you can go.
5. Movie night
Instead of spending money at the cinema, have a movie marathon at home with your husband instead. Both of you can take turn to pick a genre and none of you can complain about the choice of movie the other person picked. Make your own popcorn at home and prepare soft drinks by the coffee table. Snuggle up on your partner with a comfy blanket and just press play.
6. Play boardgames
Before you say no to Monopoly, hear us out. Challenge yourself and your husband to play a Monopoly game through until someone wins. You’ll have fun conversations and not to mention learn a lot about your partner’s business sense too. Just don’t be frustrated in the midst of the game and storm out.
7. Cook up a meal
Couples that cook together, stay together. Or so they say. Find a recipe online that the both of you love, go for grocery shopping together to buy the ingredients and spend the rest of the afternoon in the kitchen. You can also switch up the game by asking your husband to cook something that you requested and you cook something that he loves to eat. By the end of the meal, give your verdicts to each other like how they do it in MasterChefs.
8. Be a photographer for a day
If either of you is interested in photography, spend the day walking around a nearby town or city, trading the camera back and forth and see who comes out with the best shots.
9. Plan a trip
You might need to save up for awhile, but that doesn’t mean you can’t daydream. Plan your dream vacation with each other — it might be the incentive you need to start putting your loose change in the piggy bank.
10. Play 20 questions
Whether you’ve been together for three year or 30 years, there are probably things you don’t know about each other. To play this game, each of you should write down 20 open ended questions and fire away. Take turns answering the questions and get to know each other better than you already do.
