Relive the Singapore of yesteryear with over 120 programmes and activities islandwide at Singapore Heritage Festival 2018

Did you know there was a Jurong drive-in cinema back in the 70s? Guess what – it’s back! While it may not be here to stay, a similar drive-in cinema at Jurong Town Hall will be recreated thanks to Singapore Heritage Festival 2018, along with a spotlight on other iconic landmarks in Jurong, Jalan Besar, Chinatown, Bras Basah.Bugis and Toa Payoh.

Bring on the nostalgia! The 15th edition of the community-led festival is back from 6 – 22 April 2018, encouraging Singaporeans and Singapore residents to discover the lesser known aspects of our nation’s history. For example, did you know that we have a homegrown candy factory from the 1940s that’s still in operation today, three generations on? How about the history of how one of Singapore’s most famous Hindu temples ended up smack-dab in the middle of Chinatown?

Sassy Mama Styling Tips: Gingham Print
Heading to a beach club in Sentosa for the weekend or watching the kids sports practice? This tiered gingham dress is adorable and practical for mama life. Gingham print is huge again this season and is a timeless print that works on all frames and heights. It also works brilliantly for hiding sticky fingerprints from the littles too! When paired with a comfy slide you can move from one outing to the next in style and comfort! .

Sassy Mama about town with her mini-me #sosassy girl. A venture to Clarke Quay and taking in some sights. How cool and colourful is this building? It's the Old Hill Street Police Station and home to the Ministry of Communications and Information and the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. A stunning 1930s colonial building located on River Valley Road. Worth a 📸 in front of!
