Once upon a time, a long long time ago, the sky hung very close to the ground. The sky was friends with the earth and all the people living in it and wanted to be close to them. Whatever food or drink the people needed, the sky would grant them. On one condition, “Never take more than you need”. The people were respectful to the sky and they all lived in harmony. Until one day, a lady asked for a huge HUGE chocolate cake. As hard as she tried, she couldn’t finish it! The sky was not happy at all. Find out what happened next in “Why is the Sky Far Away”, told by a Young Storyteller from The Storytelling Centre.

The popular Aqua Gastronomy, a-one-of-a-kind underwater dining experience, returns for a final run with its Spring Edition. Step into one of eight underwater pavilions or head to one of the whimsically-decorated tables and let the Lady of the Ocean mesmerize you with an ancient tale. One about a celebratory underwater feast hosted by the Dragon Emperor and joined by the Golden Ox.

Watch the sea animals glide by as you indulge yourself in that very tale’s legendary five-course spread, inspired and named after each of the five fortunes - Fortune, Prosperity, Longevity, Joy and Wealth.

Judging by the previous editions of Aqua Gastronomy, you might want to book a table fast if you’re interested or you might out on this sumptuous gastronomic experience.
