Ambassador of Ukraine to Singapore, Dmytro Senik, holding an item commonly found in homes in Ukraine. It is said to be able to ward off the ‘evil eye’ and bring good luck 🙂
The Singapore Red Cross International Bazaar happening this Saturday will have 50 stalls selling food and products from all over the world, together with games booths and a full day of performances! Make sure you mark your calendar and make your way down to Suntec Convention Centre as this bazaar is for a
good great cause! 100% of proceeds from the bazaar will go to the Singapore Red Cross’ local humanitarian programmes. I went for the media preview today where folks from the participating embassies showcased some of the merchandise that will be made available at the bazaar on Saturday.
There was the Kabsa (a traditional Saudi rice dish with meat) from the Embassy of Qatar. Too bad it was all under cling wrap or I’ll be able to tell you if it smells good. Looked delicious though! There’ll also be coffee, sweets, costumes etc on Saturday. So make sure you swing by their booth.
And here’s some merchandise from Brazil. Expect Havaianas, sweets, tshirts, etc…
I bet the stall from the Koreans will be very popular. What with the kimchi, kimbap, korean wine, lacquerware and… LANEIGE products. 😀
This is just a sampling; head to the bazaar on Saturday for the real deal:
From Bangladesh, there’ll be food (samosas, briyani), fashion, jute bags, leather and porcelain items. From Egypt, look out for the hieroglyphics stencil (I think they’re so cool!) From Poland, there’ll be honey, picnic mats, cookbooks (even in Chinese!). At the Sri Lankan booth, you’ll find lots of premium Ceylon tea from 4 of the big brands.
I tried the chocolate from Ukraine – it’s really good. Also on sale will be cookbooks, some toys, design kits for children, and lots of other knick-knacks…
Bring an empty stomach as there’ll be international cuisine and uniquely SG buys (pastry, ice cream, etc). Indulge in some henna painting or get a balloon sculpture, and definitely enjoy the cultural shows put up by the folks from Greece, Indonesia, Japan and Sri Lanka. There’ll also be a dog show, magic show and a cheerleading show!
MediaCorp artiste, Ya Hui, will also make a special appearance as SRC’s new ambassador. There’ll be a mini auction of her prized possessions and an autograph session for those who have purchased the limited edition Singapore Red Cross bears.
Do give SRC your support as funds raised go towards supporting the disabled, the elderly and the vulnerable members of our community through residential and day care, transport aid, food aid, elder aid, first aid and humanitarian training, etc. 🙂
