Singapore marketed its 50th year of nationhood in August, but its Golden Jubilee is carrying over into September with a variety of events put on by Singapore Tourism Board and held throughout New York City. It’s an opportunity to learn more about this Malaysian city without needing a passport and plane ticket. But hurry, it wraps up this Sunday!

Culinary
Various restaurants have put together special menus or add-on menu items of Singaporean dishes or drinks worth trying. From now through September 27,  Singapore Restaurant Week has participating eateries offering everything from fish and chicken dishes to cocktails. They include Andaz 5th Avenue, The Meatball Shop, The Red Cat, and Delicatessen. At its Madison Square Park location, Shake Shack is serving up a special beverage called Onde Onde Shake now through September 27. Its recipe takes traditional Malaysian sweet rice dumplings and turns them in to a shake format. And in NYC’s Flatiron District, now September 27, a pop-up venue called Singapore Hawker Pop-up will dispense Singapore style street food by K.F Seetoh.

Visual Arts
One big feature is Singapore: Inside Out, an artistic exhibition on view in Madison Square Park now through September 27. It’s a showcase of multi-sensory creative experiences designed by various Singaporean artists and performers. And if you walk along Fifth Avenue toward Bergdorf Goodman, find in the luxury department store’s windows, pieces by Singaporean photographer, John Clang until October 6. There is also a number of theatrical and musical performances as well.
