With National Day fast approaching, 2 of the 3 events that are covered in this week’s activities for everyone pertains to Singapore. The other is an event that encourages healthy living through a very simple activity at one of the most scenic locations Singapore has to offer. So sit back, relax and read on to find out the best events coming up for you this week!
Clifford Square (Beside Fullerton Bay Hotel) & various other locations
14th July – 30th July, 5pm – 10.30pm
If there’s one thing I can forever take away from my stay in Singapore, it would be the food. I think most Singaporeans and people from around the world who have visited would agree with me that Singapore is one of the greatest food hubs in South East Asia because of the wide variety of cultural foods we have on our tiny island. This event encompasses everything good about the food industry in Singapore. The Singapore Food Festival commenced on the 14th of July and extends to 30th of July so when you get a chance, grab friends and family and head on down for this wonderful food fiesta. You’ll be able to find many of the classic Singaporean hawker foods for just 50 cents. Yes, 50 cents for each of the hawker foods. There also multiple food workshops including Ion’s chocolate wonderland and the Kueh pairing workshops. Do check out the link above for more details on where and how you can attend the activities you would like to participate in.
Gardens By The Bay, 18 Marina Gardens Drive
Sunday, 30th July 2017, 7.30am
Healthy Living, Healthy Kidneys Walk is happening at Gardens By The Bay this Sunday at 7.30 am. As the name suggests, this walk is all about educating people on how important your kidneys are for your body and just generally promoting healthy living. This event is organized by the Foo Hai Buddhist Cultural and Welfare Association who pride themselves upon participating in charitable activities which encompasses helping the less fortunate in Singapore. They attempt to provide as much financial support as possible to these people by providing services to elderly day care centres, child care centres and kidney dialysis centres. This walkathon will also play host to guest of honour Mr Chee Hong Tat, the senior minister of state, ministry of health and ministry of communications and information. If you’re interested in taking part in this walkathon, do visit the link to find out the route and how you can register.
Sentosa, Imbiah station
17 July – 1 August 2017
The final entry on the list is very apt for our upcoming national day celebrations. So Singapore is happening at Sentosa with plenty of family themed activities lined up for everyone to take part in. To be more specific, these activities are happening at the Imbiah station right next to the giant Merlion statue. Just a tip – try and head down on a Saturday to ensure you get the full Singaporean experience because Wushu performances, Peranakan folk songs and Chinese opera performances are all planned for Saturday evenings. When the sky turns dark, turn your attention to the Merlion because there will be a fantastic lights show as the statue is painted with various colours and visual effects. Check out the link above for more details on the kind of things you can experience at So Singapore.
