Shake Shack has recently announced the location of their new branch at Liat Towers.

In 2004 USHG won the bid to open a permanent kiosk in the Park: Shake Shack was born.

An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) has opened its Singapore Office which marks a new stage in the expansion of ADB’s private sector operations. It will be a lean and focused office comprising 12 specialists from ADB’s Private Sector Operations Department (PSOD) and Office of Public–Private Partnership, working in a range of sectors including infrastructure, financial institutions, agribusiness, health and education, trade finance, private equity, and cofinancing.

Singapore is an active participant in the ASEAN Infrastructure Fund that is supported by ADB.

The Blue Ginger has come a long way and has finally established their 2nd branch at the newly-revamped Great World City.
The inspiration behind their starting “blue ginger” cannot be fully explained without first sharing with you the aspects of peranakan culture.

Their journey of rediscovery was prompted by the fond memories of hearty feasts at grandma’s. The Blue Ginger was created simply through their desire to share their unique culture with others.
Today, the restaurant is run by a team of people who are passionate towards this end.
