Singapore is a multicultural society where different ethnic races, such as Chinese, Indians and Malays, live together harmoniously. This cultural diversity has resulted in a colourful collection of traditions, languages, festivals and customs which allowed Singapore to have a more vibrant and diverse cultural heritage.
Treetops Executive Residences Singapore, a serviced apartment in Singapore, is committed to providing a memorable living experience for their guests. An interesting array of holistic and cultural guest activities is organised regularly, allowing guests to mingle with their new friends and neighbours while experiencing the unique Singapore culture.
The Lunar New Year is one of the most important festivals celebrated by the Chinese in Singapore as well as worldwide. Treetops involves guests from different nationalities during their celebration of the Lunar New Year so that everyone can get to know more about this important festival. On the first day of the Lunar New Year, guests are invited to catch an impressive lion dance performance and partake in the ‘Yusheng’ tossing, a unique local practice where food ingredients with auspicious meanings are piled onto a large plate and “tossed” using chopsticks to a height before eating. Other activities include having a traditional steamboat (hot pot) dinner specially prepared for each family, which symbolises family reunion and unity in the Chinese culture.
Treetops also shares with guests the cultures of the Malay and Indian communities through traditional dance performances especially choreographed by the staff for a more personal touch. At the same time, festive snacks will also be served so that guests are able to experience the unique tastes of the traditional snacks, often available only during the festive period.
With a plethora of guest activities organised throughout the year, guests will be able to learn more about the history and traditions of the local festivals as they immerse into the local culture. Some guests even picked up simple greetings in different languages such as “Xin Nian Kuai Le” for Chinese Lunar New Year, “Selamat Hari Raya” for Malay Hari Raya Puasa and “Deepavali Valthukal” for Indian Deepavali.
