The party goes on with specially-curated communal dining experiences all of March at the Peranakan Museum.

Light Projection: Mari Kita Makan

Renowned Singaporean artist Yip Yew Chong presents a specially commissioned digital artwork, celebrating the food of the Peranakans. The animated illustration captures the preparation, dining, and riotous colours synonymous with the Peranakan culinary experience. Catch the artwork from sunset until late, daily until the end of March. This is the artist’s and the museum’s first foray into digital murals and projection mapping.

Inflatables: The In-Kueh-Dibles

Kuehs come to life in this interactive artwork by design team, Bunch of Monkeys! Meet the inflatable characters in the shapes of recognisable and colourful Peranakan kuehs, playfully scattered around Armenian Street. The kuehs invite you to discover, play, and bounce with them!

*The in-kueh-dible bouncy castle will only be available from 8-10 March. Suitable for participants aged 7 years and above.

The Peranakan Pasar

For one weekend only (8 - 10 Mar, 5 pm - 10 pm), step into a Peranakan-themed night market, where you can explore a blend of traditional and modern flavours, and rummage through cookbooks, collectibles and more!

Take home recipes and ingredients to recreate your favourite Peranakan dishes, or pick up tips and tricks at our cooking demonstrations. Get a Peranakan themed manicure or henna tattoo, visit our photo booth to dress up in Peranakan fashion and snap some memories. 

Roving Theatrical Performance: Kueh on the Run
