The Singapore Botanic Gardens’ Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden has doubled in size with a new two-hectare extension that includes new attractions and programmes geared towards youngsters up to 14 years old.
This will allow families with older children to immerse in nature as they explore the different eco-systems simulated in this new extension. It aims to expose children to and help them understand the ecology of plants through nature play and experiential learning. Prior to the extension, the Garden catered to children up to 12 years old.
The Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is the first garden in Asia dedicated to children. Its theme of ‘Life on Earth Depends on Plants’ aims to educate and instil a love for nature in children. The Garden is a complete nature-learning environment, where children can delve deeper into the ecology of plants and our environment through discovery and experiential learning.
The Garden offers children a space for exploration, adventure and play, with a farm, an orchard, and a forest with its own stream and ponds. Young adventure seekers can explore the suspension bridge and nature play areas; budding naturalists can walk along the stream and climb into the tree-houses; and all urban gardeners can observe how plants grow and pick up some gardening tips! Be an ‘Adventurer’, ‘Gardener’ or ‘Naturalist’ for a day at the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden by following these carefully curated trails.

World-renowned perfume house, diptyque, will be opening their stand-alone store in Singapore soon at Ngee Ann City.
The diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson. They were joined by the third in 1961 and opened a shop to display their designs. Yves became the administrator and consultant; Desmond and Christiane were the artistic soul. Bit by bit, with finely honed taste, the trio transformed the site into a one-of-a-kind setting, a kind of stylish bazaar where one found surprising articles unmatched in Paris, mined and conveyed home by the trio over the course of their travels.
Since 1961, diptyque's passion for creativity and design has made it a world-renowned perfume house, purveyor of a comprehensive line of home fragrance (including our iconic candles), personal fragrance & body care.
Since the very first polo created in 1933, Lacoste relies on its authentic sportive roots to spring optimism and elegance on the world thanks to a unique and original lifestyle for women, men and children.
Lacoste is a lifestyle brand, born of the inventiveness of a tennis champion, René Lacoste, who created the first polo shirt ever, initially for himself and for his friends, to be both relaxed and elegant on and off the tennis courts.
Nicknamed the Crocodile by the press in the late 1920's when he was a multiple Grand Slam tennis champion, René Lacoste had the animal embroidered on the blazer he wore on court, before making it the logo of his famous polo shirt.
Lacoste is famous today for its iconic polo shirt, available in a wide colour palette every season, but more broadly offers sportswear apparel for men and women, as well as shoes, eyewear, watches, fragrances, handbags and luggage, belts and home textile.
Following their well-received and popular flagship restaurant on Wallich Street, SBCD Korean Tofu House's 2nd outlet is now open at Millenia Walk.
SBCD’s signature 'Soontofu' (tofu stew) is made with a rigorous preparation process, where mature white soybeans that are specially imported from Paju, South Korea, are boiled, curdled and pressed for the perfect taste and texture.
Paju, South Korea is located within an hour’s drive northwest of the capital city, Seoul and is within close proximity of Korea’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Due to the untouched and pristine nature of the DMZ and its proximities, fresh produce sourced from Paju remains one of the top choices in terms of quality for many local merchants.
