1. N*thing is Possible Exhibition
This is a one-of-a-kind exhibition that truly embodies the meaning of turning trash into treasure! The N*thing is Possible exhibition by Potato Head features recycled furniture and heaps of trash that are displayed as art installations. The exhibition also highlights recycled furniture and accessories made from man-made waste materials, all part of Potato Head’s mission towards a “zero-waste lifestyle”.
Waste products showcased at the exhibition include piles of bottle caps, oil containers, styrofoam boxes and more. Placed together, these mounds of trash-turned-art paint a harrowing picture of how much waste we actually generate, and how they inevitably end up in landfills if we don’t change the way we treat our trash. You can also check out the massive circular structure constructed from old wooden shutters that showcases Potato Head’s timeline and zero-waste journey.

2. Marsiling Bazaar
It’s heartening to see how our favourite pasar malams are back in full force, one of them being the Marsiling Bazaar, a mega pasar malam at Woodlands MRT that’s apparently the largest pasar malam in Singapore!

Visitors to the pasar malam can look forward to both retail and food stalls, plus some new food offerings as well. Highlights include grilled mochi, mango pomelo sago, cheese corn, Korean corn dogs, Thai banana pancakes and more; along with your usual pasar malam favourites. There are also dine-in benches and tables for if you want to sit and enjoy your eats while they’re piping hot.
