If you spend an insane amount of time looking for deals and bargaining on Carousell, hopefully not lowballing with the sellers for that one perfect item, Carouselland is the place you need to be this weekend.

Happening on the 11th and 12th of August at the Marina Bay Sands Halls A & B, Carouselland will be the largest indoor marketplace in Singapore featuring more than 400 popular sellers from Carousell.

Let your inner fashionista go wild with @vintagewknd, a vintage fashion curator selling a variety of unique patterned shirts and skirts, or simply get a cute little succulent for work from @lushnplush.

Of course, what’s a bazaar without food? Grab a bucket, yes, a bucket of meatballs at Sofnade or indulge in artisan french fries served with a generous helping of garlic aioli sauce at The Daily Menu Co. There will also be unicorn milkshakes, mochi ice-cream, halal takoyaki and even rosti!

Here’s A Different Kind of Festival at Sands for Singapore 2018



Mention Marina Bay Sands and the word ‘luxury’ comes to mind. For what it’s worth, the glittering shopping mall, home to world class celebrity chef restaurants and haute couture brands, has branded itself as the destination for all things opulent.

But here’s what you may not know: since 2013, MBS has raised nearly a whopping $20 million in total for local charities. They achieved that milestone with help from the public via their annual Sands for Singapore Charity Festival, with this year being their sixth edition.

Check out this article:  Singapore Heritage Festival 2018: New Places. New Stories. New Communities.

Sands for Singapore is a yearly multi-day event that aims to raise awareness and funds for MBS’ partner charities. Different facets of the integrated resort are used to host various activities catered for family and friends. Regardless of age, there’s something for everyone.

Here’s how you can extend your help to the community in fun and celebratory ways:

In partnership with Dignity Kitchen, a hawker training school for the disabled and disadvantaged, chefs from MBS’ signature restaurants will prepare top notch dishes from their menu with help from the beneficiaries of Dignity Kitchen.

This festival will give members of the social enterprise a chance to acquire new knowledge and showcase their culinary skills. Participating restaurants include db Bistro & Oyster Bar and Bread Street Kitchen and Bar.

On top of that, enjoy performances by local bands Supersonic, 53A, and the HubbaBubbas. If you get bored, there’ll be fringe activities such as art jamming and drone fishing to participate in.

Go on an amazing race

Grab five other pals and form a team of six to participate in this year’s Play It Forward. Representing a local charity of your choice, partake in creative challenges around the resort. Each station in the route symbolises a charity supported by MBS.

Sweat it out

Together with Community Chest, get on your feet and go on a 4km walk around Marina Bay. If you’re up for a challenge, race 57 floors up to the SkyPark Observation Deck. Not only do you get to burn those calories, you stand to win attractive prizes sponsored by MBS, too. Not bad at all.
