DBS Marina Regatta : Food Village by SAVOUR

Amidst the long weekend in Singapore where most people would take the opportunity to head for a short holiday, I was thinking I could easily head to my weekend event without having to push my way around in the crowd, boy was I wrong,

Today I am covering an event at the Marina Bay Promontory where DBS is having returning for the fourth consecutive year and this year they are igniting the BAY, held in conjunction with the 28th Sea Games, This year they made it big and spanning over three weekends. 30th May to 14th June with over 100 teams participating in the biggest Dragon Boat race in Singapore and maybe Asia

DBS RegattaAs the venue sponsor, DBS also made available a number of activities ahead of the DBS Marina Regatta, which starts this weekend. Youth athletes, their supporters and the public got a sneak peek of what event-goers can expect over the next three weekends including the DBS Food Village by Savour and the artisanal flea market.

But before you head over to the Food Village which I totally recommend for a good taste of many flavors there, Do watch this video on how to save some money by watching this video from Samuel, Product Manager for Paylah

For every one kilometre paddled, DBS will donate SGD 100 to organisations that will use the funds to organise sports activities for PwDs. Donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Care and Share movement led by Community Chest.

I do recommend heading down to the Promontory for the next two following weekends to chill out with testosterone filled hunk, babes and even supporters like this one from Spanish Armada
