Food art, lifestyle shopping, live performances, and selfie fun at Singapore first CMYK Event.
Thai-style flea markets with a wide selection of hipster food is all the craze nowadays, and the latest to hit Singapore is CMYK Event by 100 Plus Organizer.
To recap what I previously wrote in a promotion post, CMYK stands for “Creative Millennials Youth Karnival,”and is an opportunity for local and international enterprises to connect via a platform built on arts and fun. (For shoppers and diners, that means the opportunity for great food, fun, and live entertainment) Having been trapped indoors for a few days no thanks to incessant rain, I’ve been looking forward to heading down for a look-see. Here are some early evening pictures I took. As you’d also see, the vast Bayfront Event Space affords plenty of room for everyone. It was very pleasant strolling about in the evening cool.
Outside of this event, the term “CMYK” is very, very familiar to me.
It stands for “Cyan Magenta Yellow (&) Black,” and is the requisite colour mode still used for offset printing.
To share, when I initially heard about CYMK Event, I actually thought it was a printing technology exhibition, or a graphic designers’ get-together. Only later did I realise the organizers adopted the term to represent shades of design, or lifestyle colours, and so on.
There are still references, sort of, to this original meaning throughout the event, in the form of quirky photo booths and backdrops. Among these, the most eye-catching ones are undoubtedly the monochromatic booths. As long as you’re wearing the right contrasting colour, you will really, really stand out in these unique setups. Regrettably, I was in my usual dreary mix of grey and off-everything, and so I couldn’t have a go. I got more than a little jealous watching squealing kids have fun.
Hipster Food Galore! And a Breezy Beer Garden
On the official webpage, 100 Plus Organizer promises “ultimate food art” at CMYK Event, with a huge selection of delectable goodies to choose from. This is indeed so! On top of two dedicated eating i.e. feasting areas, numerous food booths are scattered about the event space. There’s also an atmospheric and pretty selfie-perfect elevated beer garden near the event stage.
CMYK Event is ongoing at Bayfront Event Space till Sept 23, 2018. Check the Event Homepage for more details!
