#SG50 ’s Biggest Fan Wins an Exclusive #Airbnb Staycation at #Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

24-year old student-teacher and family to experience a magical night at the transformed Esplanade Theatre stage this Jubilee Weekend


6 August 2015, Singapore — Following a week-long search, SG50 has finally found its biggest fan. The lucky winner, Tay Zhi Wen, 24, impressed the judges with a 15-second musical mashup of “Happy Birthday” and this year’s National Day Song, “Our Singapore” with a violin and er hu. Her creative video has earned her and her family a one-night staycation on the Esplanade Theatre stage, and four tickets to the National Day Parade.

Zhi Wen’s video was chosen over 168 other participants who took part in the 10-day contest. The 24-year-old and her family have a deep love of the arts and Esplanade, where she has performed at several times before with the Singapore Youth Chinese Orchestra and Chung Cheng High School (Main) Chinese Orchestra. Her brother, who plays the suona, and her boyfriend, a music composer, will be joining her for the exciting night’s stay at Esplanade. She will also be accompanied by her mother, whose support for her children’s musical interests has allowed her to play audience to many of their performances at Esplanade, but who has never had the chance to experience the stage on such an intimate level before.

“When I received a call from the SG50 organising committee, I just couldn’t believe my ears. I’m happy that I won. Having performed at Esplanade many times before, this will be a really great chance for my family and I to experience Esplanade like never before, in a more intimate and personal way. We are very grateful and feel privileged that we have been offered this special opportunity to celebrate SG50 in Singapore, at what we sometimes call our second home this coming Jubilee weekend, and to create more memories in this beloved Theatre,” said Zhi Wen.



Themed “A Night through Time“, the party of four’s home at the Esplanade Theatre stage will be refurbished in a style reminiscent of 1960s Singapore. Unique features of the room include old and authentic pieces of furniture that have stood the test of time since the 1960s and have been lovingly restored. The performances, sound effects and stage lighting have also been specially designed to make the entire sensory experience at the Theatre as authentically 1960s as possible.

As part of the experience, Singaporean actress Oon Shu An will play host to the party of four, and take them on a journey back to 1960s Singapore. There, they will have an opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled programme of arts performances, a behind-the-scenes tour of Esplanade, a dinner at Esplanade’s rooftop restaurant, and end their stay with coveted seats at the 2015 National Day Parade.

“The Singapore story is one that resonates deeply with me in my heart. Theatre is my first love and it is a privilege for me to welcome the upcoming winners in a staycation that will literally take them on “A Night Through Time”. This one-of-a-kind event would not have been possible without the collaboration among SG50, Airbnb and Esplanade, and I look forward to bringing them through this once in a lifetime experience” said Oon Shu An, Singaporean actress.

“We are excited to host Zhi Wen and her family at Esplanade. Her birthday wish for Singapore was not only creative but heartwarming, and we hope they enjoy the experience of staying at a venue that some of the very best artists from Singapore and around the world have performed before. We would also like to welcome all Singaporeans to celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee with us at Esplanade, where there will be arts performances and activities by our very talented Singapore artists,” said Racel Yee, Head, Service Delivery & Standards, The Esplanade Co Ltd.

“Airbnb is thrilled to be able to provide a magical hospitality experience for Singapore’s biggest fan and loved ones at Esplanade this Jubilee Weekend. As our guests experience “A Night through Time” at this iconic location, they will be immersed in the richness and nostalgia of Singapore’s exceptional history and culture, and be inspired about the exciting future ahead. This is what Airbnb is all about – creating unforgettable moments in unique accommodations. We couldn’t be happier to make Zhi Wen’s staycation an unforgettable one,” said Chai Jia Jih, Managing Director, Southeast Asia and India, Airbnb.

From 27 May, residents in Singapore can nominate their personal heroes by logging on to Sentosa’s website or by visiting one of the Fun Movement’s nomination booths located in Nex Mall and Temasek Polytechnic. Each entry allows members of the public to nominate anyone who they think deserves to take some time off to enjoy themselves. Five winning entries with the highest number of public votes will be rewarded with a specially-tailored surprise day of fun in Sentosa, packed with personalised activities and experiences.


Sentosa will select and feature 20 of the most inspiring stories on www.sentosa.com.sg/funmovement from 3 July. The public can vote for the top five winners, who will then be taken on a surprise day out in Sentosa.


The Fun Movement was launched with the release of two heart-warming videos; Hui Chee Wan, 51, a hardworking cab driver who has done his best to provide for his family and Indra S.M. Theva, 41, a dedicated nurse who gives her best for her patients and her family, were each secretly swept away for a specially-tailored day out in Sentosa where they were joined by family and friends.


This campaign is organised by Grey Group Singapore and supported by Sentosa.

#SingEx Presents #SG50 #PlayLah! @SingaporeEXPO

To mark Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, SingEx, the management company of Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre, invites one and all to participate in a weekend of family fun on 6 and 7 June 2015 at Singapore EXPO. The event will take place at Hall 4A from 12 noon till 6pm over the two days. Admission is free.

Aloysius Arlando, the Chief Executive Officer of SingEx, describes the inspiration behind the event. “We wanted to contribute to the SG50 celebrations in a manner that promotes community and family bonding while reliving Singapore’s memorable moments. What better way for us to do so than to play together our childhood games of today and yesteryear through a nostalgic fun-filled weekend for families. “Play-lah” is our way of showing appreciation for the contr ibutions, big and small, by our fellow Singaporeans and friends of Singapore in transforming Singapore to what she is today” ”

In partnership with the National Heritage Board, experience zones will showcase the essence of growing up in Singapore by means of games, interactive activities or memorable icons from the 1960s through to today. Each experience zone will feature a host character representing a decade and they will take visitors on a nostalgic journey through Singapore’s rich culture and milestone events over the years.

Visitors can look forward to the Kampong Days zone, capturing life in the 60’s and 70’s featuring games such as congkak, chapteh and five stones, the Let’s Go Retro zone, where the 80’s and 90’s will be brought to the forefront and the Millennial zone, which will take them through the 2000’s and 2010’s, showcasing Singapore’s urban lifestyle with activities such as skateboarding and hi-tech computer gam es.

In addition, a Water Heritage Exhibition sponsored by PUB Water will educate visitors as to Singapore’s Water Story, telling the story of a fledgling nation’s relentless effort to transform itself from a water-scarce city into an emerging, global hyrdo-hub.

An extra something appealing to fashionistas is the Singapore Fashion Runway (SFR), a nationwide initiative that brings Singaporeans together to co-create and design a national dress. Witness the creations of local fashion designers, tailors and craftsmen that have been tasked to design 50 fashion pieces inspired by Singapore, for Singapore.

Rounding up the showcase will be The Kids zone – featuring bouncing castles and educational workshops to entertain and delight children; and the Simply Shiok z one – where a wide variety of popular local delicacies such ice cream potong, laksa and malt candy will work up anyone’s appetite.

10 Video on Old School Singapore TV Ads

Some videos on memorable TV advertisements which personally, I think it was pretty well done. (Alright, the plots and dialogue are really….. you know what I mean)

Just to bring back some childhood memories for those (a little bit more) mature Singaporeans.

If you happen to be born in the 90s (or the millennium? Gosh I just realise they should be in secondary school now. Time flies!), erm….. just take a look and probably you will find it very amusing.
