Looking for a me time activity? Here’s a simple and convenient way to pamper yourself

We all agree that me time is far and few between once you’ve become a mum. So once it comes around, a guilty pleasure is definitely in order. Are you a K-Drama fan, finally with some time on your hands? Read on to find out how the Singtel Cast app can provide you (and your child) with lots of entertainment!

Whether you’re a new mum who finds herself attached to a little warm body and stuck at home all day, a stay-at-home mum who braves through each day running after her kids, cooking and cleaning her home; or a working mum who’s had a rough day in the office returning home to begin her ‘second shift’ as a parent – we totally agree when you say me time is hard to come by.

So what’s there to do with little pockets of time to unwind and pamper yourself during your daily commute to and from work or after a long day?

The answer: Entertainment anytime, anywhere with Singtel Cast

That’s right. Watch your favourite shows on Singtel Cast, an all-in-one, convenient streaming app that you can use anytime and anywhere. And Singtel has great news for hardcore K-Drama fans, or someone who simply enjoys watching Asian TV shows.
