Locals like to go "prawning" where we try to catch as many prawns within an hour or 2 using a line. The line and rod can be rented at the prawning pools at various spots in Singapore. It typically costs around $35 SGD per pax. I had a record hit of 30 plus prawns in a night. =)
Singaporeans love to eat! Sometimes we gather a bunch of friends and go on a food spree in areas like Katong, Geylang, Chinatown. Ie. Drive around to different locations and sample all the good food S'pore has to offer. Order many different dishes and share the spread.
Yes, those are the two favorite activities of locals.
An additional one is exploring the nearby islands, soaking in the Sun,at the beach.
Go-Karting at Jurong, Golf at CDANS, shopping and sand slides in Sentosa. And did I mention, swimming at Wild, Wild Wet at Downtown East!
Might not be such a secret, but three things that come to mind...
