Five things to do since there are no English Premier League matches this weekend

There are no English Premier League club matches happening this weekend due to the international break.

In fact, there are no club matches anywhere in the world.

If you are among the many fans who do not care for games between countries, here are five suggestions to keep you occupied.

RE-WATCH LEE ZII JIA’S INCREDIBLE ALL-ENGLAND VICTORY

Lee Zii Jia made Malaysia proud last Sunday when he captured the All-England men’s singles title after beating Viktor Axelsen in a thrilling three-game encounter.

If you missed that game, fret not. You can watch the repeat of all the finals on Astro Channel 814 at 2.30pm on Saturday. Alternatively, you can head over to the On Demand section to watch just the men’s singles final where you have the option of watching only the highlights or the entire match.

WATCH ZACK SYNDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE

As mentioned in ‘The MCO Diaries’ last weekend, Zack Synder’s Justice League is now streaming on the Astro Go app as well as on its Ultra Box.

The nearly four-hour-long movie gives more compelling ‘origin stories’ for several characters, particularly Cyborg, and introduces a new main villain.

The action sequences and the epilogue make it a worthwhile watch and give the movie a different dimension.

But, being so long, several friends have suggested treating it like a miniseries and watch it in phases since it has six chapters and one epilogue.

Alternatively, pretend it is a football match and watch it in 45-minute segments!

CHEER FOR KING KONG OR ROOT FOR GODZILLA

If you have not been to the cinema in a while, now is as good a time as any to return.

The main attraction? Kong vs Godzilla has started playing on the silver screen all over Malaysia.

This is the fourth film in the ‘Monsterverse’ franchise – Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017) and Godzilla: King of Monsters (2019).

In King of the Monsters, Godzilla was the ‘good guy’ who defeated several other Titans who wanted to destroy Earth.

In this movie, it might return to being the ‘bad guy’, or maybe not. Guess you have to go see it to find out!

CELEBRATE EARTH HOUR

Tomorrow is Earth Hour, a global grassroots movement uniting people to take action on environmental issues and protect the planet.

The event encourages people, communities and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights for one hour from 8.30pm-9.30pm.

You can also show your support by signing up for the Earth Hour Virtual Run.

This 10km virtual run ends on April 15 but registration closes tomorrow.

HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO

March 28 is National Black Forest Cake Day in the United States. While we do not follow this tradition, why not attempt to bake one anyway.

Here is a recipe you could try.
