Besides the Ramadan bazaars this month, we will also have the chance to drop by the Five Footway Festival 2024! The festival aims to encourage us to reminisce about the good old days of Chinatown with a myriad of different activities, ranging from exciting games to delicious food!

Here, participants will receive a booklet of images which depict different idioms across the dialect groups! If that doesn’t appeal to you, have no fear! There are tons of other activities to choose from, like old-school traditional games, Hokkien puppet shows, and various opera performances.
