The Great Bay Fiesta
The Great Bay Fiesta returns after a three-year hiatus with a magical fun-filled playland designed for small and big kids to let their hair down and run riot into the new year.
Organised by The Show Master (an Uncle Ringo company) and presented by Trip.com, The Great Bay Fiesta is now open at Bayfront Event Space till Jan 1, and held in conjunction with the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown.
The four main event segments include The Great Cirque de Cascades featuring an 80-minute show of live circus acts by Gandey’s Circus; The Great World Carnival filled with nostalgic rides and games; The Great Food Fiesta offering over 30 mouth-watering bites; and Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy on Ice, the biggest pop-up winter attraction complete with snow-filled activities, and an ice bar.
One of the highlights of the carnival is the crossover between Uncle Ringo and OpenSea that brought the highly sought-after NFT IP of Prime Ape Planet design (from the Genesis Collection) to life. This is Uncle Ringo's first foray into the web3 landscape to explore an omni-channel integrated experience for its visitors using the NFT IP space.
The event will also present Singapore’s first Tesla electric light show. Leveraging on the functionality of electric vehicles, these Tesla models – Model 3, Model Y, and Tesla Supercharger — will be putting up a jazzy light show with its headlights, taillights, cabin lights, and other lighting, programmed to beat in sync with the music.

LED skin therapy
If your acne is taking forever to heal or skin just feels worse for wear, you need a jolt of LED light therapy to speed up the recovery process. Homegrown Kew Organics' sister brand, Sugar K Organic Peel Bar, offers a quick and effective all-in-one LED treatment ($86 for 20 minutes) that boosts collagen, reduces acne bacteria, prevents pigmentation, desensitises skin and delays ageing.
Made in Canada, the Food and Drug AdministrationFDA-approved LED machine is programmed to treat various skin conditions by calibrating on the intensity level and duration needed. Different wavelengths are combined with over 95% of fresh, organic botanical active ingredients under the Kew Organics skincare line to promote absorption into the deeper skin layers.
To tone up the skin and boost circulation, Kew Organic’s founder, Lily Kew, recommends combining your session with the Sugar K Skin Gym Organic Treatment (from $105 for 30 minutes) -- an age-reversing treatment that combines organic botanicals and nutrient-rich serums with a Multi-Polarity Electroporation device to stimulate blood circulation and enhance firmness. The micro massages from the hand-held device also deliver more oxygen to the skin cells, stimulate lymphatic drainage and expel toxins. Skin is younger and fresh-looking after the first session.
The Sugar K LED Treatments are available exclusively at the Cluny Court outlet. For enquiries, call 6767 3008.

A dining institution that has been an exemplar of sophisticated Cantonese gastronomy since 1971, one Michelin-starred Shang Palace welcomes chef Daniel Cheung from the brand’s Kowloon branch (also one Michelin-starred) to helm its Singapore kitchen at Shangri-La Singapore.
Bringing with him 37 years in top-level Cantonese cooking, Cheung will present his well-loved signature creations from Hong Kong, where he interprets Cantonese classics in his own distinctive style and elevates them for the modern gourmand.
Among the most well-loved are Applewood Smoked Bean Curd Rolls with Shiitake Mushroom, Carrot and Green Mustard ($18); Fried Rice with Kagoshima Wagyu Beef served in Whole Tomato ($28); Braised Bamboo Pith stuffed with Imperial Bird’s Nest and topped with Crab Coral ($120); as well as Steamed Spotted Garoupa Fillet in Egg White Sauce topped with Crispy Parma Ham ($48). Diners can also look forward to the chef’s “personal” versions of classic Hong Kong dishes such as Cantonese Style Crispy Chicken ($38), and Deep-fried Stuffed Crab Meat in shell ($38).
To celebrate a sense of place, Cheung has also curated Singapore-inspired heritage dishes, namely, the Baked Live Prawns with Garlic and Sarawak White Pepper ($58), and Stewed Shrimp Pomelo Peel ($28) — a high-technique, labour-intensive recipe centred on fully maximising ingredients, minimising waste and up-valuing under-utilised ingredients.
All these new offerings will be offered alongside the restaurant’s signature Nostalgic dishes, Cantonese classics, and guests’ favourites. For reservations, call 6213 4473 / 4398 or email [email protected]
