McDonald’s Pie Day
One tradition which people adhere to on Pi day is to eat some… yes, you guessed it – pie. McDonald’s Singapore is getting in on the act and from 12 to 14 March, you can pick up a McDonald’s Chocolate or Apple Pie for only a dollar.
So if you wish to mark Pi Day 2021 the Singaporean way, i.e. by eating, you can take advantage of this deal for a sweet treat.
Go for a 5 km (3.14 mile) Walk or Run
An alternative way to mark Pi Day 2021 is to go for a 5 km walk or run. 5 km is the equivalent of 3.14 miles. So that’s a connection, right? There are virtual runs but they are not being held in Singapore. Instead, make it a 3.14 mile exercise day on 14 March. Here are some running routes.
