The Singapore Polo Club (SPC) marked their 125 years with yet another milestone recently with the official launch of its revamped Mountbatten Room.
Once a fine-dining restaurant, the space is now a wine and cigar lounge imbued with a casual sophistication, and a vantage location to enjoy the ultimate "Game of Kings" on the field.
Founded in 1886, during Singapore's colonial past, the Club has a long and fascinating history. Set in acres of lush, tropical grounds, the Singapore Polo Club is a world apart from Singapore's bustling pace yet located just minutes from the heart of the city's hectic business and commercial centre.
The old world, rustic charm of the clubhouse with its open verandah and views of tropical greenery and open spaces provides a relaxing and understated, natural ambience.
The main focus of the Club is of course polo and more generally, equestrian sports, but other sports activities and facilities are also well represented. Members can either keep their own polo ponies at the club stables, or alternatively lease ponies from the Club's own string. Beginners, or those wishing to hone their skills may sign up for polo lessons with the Club's resident pros. For those interested primarily in horse riding, you can participate in any of the Club's varied Riding Section programmes and activities including basic riding, competitive dressage as well as show jumping at various levels, either in one to one or group lessons with our qualified riding instructors.
You may also choose to enjoy the pleasure of simply hacking along a wide selection of jungle trails that are accessible from the Club.

To enable people to have more leisure time amongst greenery and nature, the National Parks Board is adding on to its existing 110 km of Park Connectors Network – an island-wide network of linear open spaces around major residential areas that links parks and nature sites in Singapore.
The new 63 km route is currently in the midst of construction, and locals will be able to enjoy afternoons of cycling, walking or jogging along a hefty 300 km of green corridors around the island when it is completed in 2015. No matter where you live in Singapore, you can begin your outdoor walks or cycling trips at a Park Connector in your area.
Some existing Park Connectors that you can consider as starting points for your activities include the Bedok Park Connector in the east, the Sembawang Park Connector in the north, the Kallang Park Connector in the south, and the Bukit Batok East Park Connector in the west of Singapore.
Jurong Central Park is a new 8-ha regional park in the Jurong West area and is the first in Singapore to have life-sized board-game features in a park. Situated across the Boon Lay MRT Station, the park is accessible via the Jurong and Jurong West Park Connectors. The park is also located next to the upcoming new Safra Clubhouse in Jurong West.
The life-sized Snakes and Ladders playground and Ludo Garden were developed based on the traditional indoor children's board-games enjoyed by many internationally. Visitors can now enjoy the games outdoors using the dice tower built in the park for game play. The life-sized games were developed to add a new dimension to the play experience using greenery, sculpted terrains and various play equipment to fulfil diverse aspirations for play in Singapore.
The plants and trees selected for planting at the Snakes and Ladders playground include lush foliage such as the Calathea lutea and Raphis excelsa. When mature, the trees will provide visitors with the experience of playing in a jungle setting. Colourful plants were also selected for planting in the Ludo Garden, to complement the Ludo game which uses bright colours for different playing teams.
Various types of aquatic plants can be found in the wetland to complement the existing plants at site to bring visitors closer to nature. The park was designed to retain its existing wetland as a habitat for wildlife species and dragonflies. Two species of dragonfly have been spotted at the wetland - Crocothemis servilia (Red Darter) and Potamarcha congener (Orange-streaked Dragonfly). The bright colours of the dragonflies add a beautiful contrast to the green vegetation background of the wetland. Yellow bitterns and pacific swallows have also been spotted. As the wetland becomes more established over time, it will serve as a habitat to a greater number of wildlife species and continue to help bring nature back to the urban environment.
Apart from the games and wetland, Jurong Central Park also sports an event lawn, a 2km cycling and jogging track, fitness corner, benches and shelters for visitors.
Continuing to grow, Tippling Club launches its new open-air forest terrace. Dubbed the Tippling Terrace, it is an amazing space where guests can enjoy music and drinks under a canopy of trees and stars. The new annex has an area of over 1,000 sq feet, seating capacity for 40 people and standing room to host over 80 guests.
How They Met: Their story begins when Cynthia Chua, owner of the Spa Esprit Group, lured a reluctant Matthew Bax to Singapore for a short-term consultancy role. Impressed by Matthew’s underground Melbourne success at Der Raum, Cynthia invited him to revamp the drinks at her local joints, Barracks Café and Camp Bar. A strong friendship and business alliance was born. Matthew introduced Cynthia to his best mate, Chef Ryan Clift. Within weeks, discussions led to a joint venture that would allow Cynthia to take the next step in her dining ventures and breathe life to Matthew and Ryan’s six-year-old dream.
Who They Are: Ryan Clift – Partner/Head Chef
The Big Idea: Matthew and Ryan had long been working on a brave concept to pursue a higher form of food and drink matching and certainly a more fun approach to traditional haute cuisine and drink service. Essentially what they wanted to create was one big chef’s table, engrossing and drawing the customer into the kitchen and bar to experience all the magic of the creative process. Hence, the birth of Tippling Club.
Location, Location: A glance outside or a drink on the balcony will quickly explain the choice of location. Tippling Club is at once accessible yet refreshingly secluded. Just minutes from the CBD, you enter the oasis of Tippling Club in the remote area of Dempsey Hill and you immediately feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore. Sitting amongst ancient tower trees in a lush, tropical rainforest, the choice of location was the easiest decision the team would make.
Build it and They Will Come: Inspired by artists Christo and Jeanne Claude’s Wrapped Reichstag in Berlin, designer Jerry de Souza created an equally progressive yet relaxed setting for guests. “My goal was to marry the colonial past of the existing building with a modern skin, and the ever present surrounding jungle,” says de Souza. Preserving the historical significance of the building, de Souza added a modern annex to the original structure using a mix of canvas, recycled industrial rubber, stainless steel, glass and wood. A chic industrial bar gives both diners and drinkers front row seats to the action at the bar and kitchen. Overhead, an elaborate bottle installation of rare spirits hangs within reach of the bartenders -- a design element that is a nod to Bax’s other bar, the world-renowned Der Raum in Melbourne. Outside, the newly constructed open-air forest terrace allows guest to enjoy cocktails under a canopy of trees and stars.
