Pink

Check out: Pinkmas at Museum of Ice Cream

Step into a gloriously pink wonderland filled with unlimited festive treats at the Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC). You're invited to sprinkle all the way through MOIC's magical Pinkmas tree forest, craft a take-home paper gingerbread house, and, of course, sample seasonal delights like pink hot chocolate and peppermint soft serve.

Be sure to also stop by the MOIC Cafe & Bar for delicious festive treats like the massive Pinkmas Sundae, quirky Gingerbread Milkshake, and even a classic yet decadent mug of Eggnog.

Red

Check out: Seasons of Bloom at Gardens by the Bay

The Seasons of Bloom floral display celebrates Gardens by the Bay's 10th anniversary by paying tribute to the various seasons of flowers from around the world that have been showcased at the Flower Dome over the years.

You can look forward to seeing magnificent blooms of snapdragons for spring, delphiniums for summer, zinnias for autumn and cyclamens for winter. And, of course, as the centrepiece for this gorgeous display, the Flower Dome boasts a dazzling horticulture-artistry Christmas tree.

Standing at 8 metres tall and with a diameter of almost 6 metres, this vibrantly coloured tree is crafted with the use of red and white poinsettias to give it a striped pattern that resembles festive candy canes, adding a new twist to this reimagined Christmas tree.

Looking for a unique gift idea or something to inspire your 2023 New Year's resolutions? In collaboration with non-profit organisation 3Pumpkins, local residential electricity retailer Geneco has created a free e-book to inspire people from all walks of life to do their part to save our environment.

Titled "The Little Green Heroes", the book tells the story of three friends with superpowers who fight a Trash Monster that threatens their world. This charming book encourages a sustainable mindset from a young age and highlights that everyone has the power to spark a change in our world, even kids.

The e-book is available for download online as well as in the form of an audio book narrated by popular TV host and emcee Kelly Latimer.
