    Lockdown diaries: ACG MD looks forward to watching an NBA game on court


    Massages are another thing Karan Singh can’t wait to resume.

    Karan Singh says he imagines being content with a bag of popcorn and beer, and watching his favourite players battle it out at the NBA championship.
    The pandemic means that a lot of our favourites have gone out the door. For Karan Singh, Managing Director, ACG, one of the things he misses the most is watching an NBA game on court. “It’s something I’ve missed terribly” he tells ET Panache.

    “I can imagine being content with a bag of popcorn and beer, watching my favourite players battle it out in the upcoming championship,” he says wistfully.

    Apart from that, Singh also misses the simple pleasure of meeting up regularly with his family and friends. And he wants to go all out when it does happen. He shares, “I’d either book a yacht and take it to the ocean or find a secluded mansion in Phuket where we can leisurely kick-back together.”

    Food for thought
    As far as creature comforts go, Singh misses Singapore’s hawker-street food. “It’s on the top of my wishlist of things I want to do once the pandemic is over. I really relish the variety of sea-food and local Asian delicacies in Singapore,” he adds.

    Massages are another thing he can’t wait to resume. “I’ve missed my massage sessions. They’re a tremendous therapeutic outlet for me while managing stress, anxiety, mind drain and so much more,” Singh shares. But he’s picked up a new hobby in the meantime: Origami. “I spend time with my kids and have picked this up. I’ve become quite good at it.”
