One hundred eggs have sprung up all over the Sentosa HarbourFront precinct for its Easter egg hunt.

These aren’t just any eggs but gigantic artfully designed egg sculptures measuring 1.8 metres by 1 metre.

Part of the annual Great Egg-Venture organised by the Sentosa Harbourfront Business Association (SHBA), the eggs were hand-painted up by local community specially selected through an egg design competition.

The sculptures showcase the artists’ unique perspective and interpretation of Singapore as we celebrate the nation’s 50th birthday.

Though huge and colourful, you’d need more than good eyesight to hunt down all 100 eggs. Spanning across 520 hectares from Mount Faber to the HarbourFront area and onto Sentosa Island, the event is the biggest Easter fiesta to be held in Singapore.

But if an egg hunt isn’t quite your cup of tea, you can take pleasure in admiring these creatively designed eggs or participate in other Easter-themed activities such as baking classes and mass egg painting.

There will also be an egg auction where 50 SG50 commemorative eggs decorated by local, regional artists and professionals who have been successful in their own field will be up for auction in support of charity. Artists include celebrity hairstylist David Gan, award-winning sculptor Lim Chee Kiong, street artist Samantha Lo aka SKLO or “Sticker Lady”, and entrepreneur Elim Chew.

The egg hunt runs from March 21 to April 5. Sentosa’s island admission charges apply.

Singapore is a Precious Achievement

Singapore is very fortunate to enjoy peace and harmony in our multi-racial and religious society. We have built a nation where people of all races and religions live in peace. The strong spirit of unity and harmony that prevails among the different races in Singapore is a precious achievement of ours.

Our Great Scale

Singapore: a nation of many colours. Yet, we live together so well that we blend into each other’s culture harmoniously. This is our strongest defence. As long as we stay united, we will develop a skin so firm that our island stays impenetrable.

Singapore Leadership

We have come this far not through sheer luck. Together, our leaders and our people have overcome challenge after challenge. We are Singapore’s only resource. Let’s continue to thrive, grow in love and care for one another. Let’s bring out the best in ourselves and keep our flags flying high.

Busy Bees

Singapore is like a huge beehive – highly organised and very clean. Its people are like bees – industrious, vibrant, full of life – always buzzing from one place to another. To me, people here remind me of bees – hard workers, economic builders (honeycombs are the most efficient pieces of architecture in nature – a perfect hexagon) and great job creators (honey producers). It’s so multicultural yet it acts with intricate cooperation for all to live in peace and harmony. And so my team of “Busy Bees” want to wish all of you – “A VERY HAPPY BUZZING EASTER”.

Egg-static

SG50 triggers our minds to think of how far our homeland, Singapore, has come - all its achievements and setbacks. These ups and downs have unknowingly created a historical journey since 1965. Now let’s sit back, relax and press play to allow the film to speak a thousand words to you.

Happy

I am a Singapore egg timer with indicative years. Before I hatch on National Day, please keep calm, read each significant nostalgic memory that forms part of my story in my 50 years of history. I hope you pause, ponder and reflect or smile at least once.

Our Traits from Tanglin Secondary School

The transport represents SMRT, one of the biggest transport companies in Singapore. The buildings represent Singapore as a night life. The multi-racial living is one of the most unique traits of Singapore. The ‘Singlish’ that we use is also unique to us. The road represents the F1 race, one of the biggest events in Singapore, and the fireworks is to celebrate SG50. All that we have drawn on this egg represents us as a big nation.

Thanksgiving

August 9, 1965 was a joyful and anxious moment for Singapore. The colourful and vibrant colours represent the multiracial, vibrant and hopes of Singaporeans. The heart represents the love that binds us as a united nation. We know the fragility of the egg and the long journey from independence. Happy SG50!!

The Birth

Leaping from the old to the new, changes we see are not too few. As we fly our kites so high, what can we see when our dreams are high? A city, a life, a forest so tall and everlasting birth of home to us all.

Jubilee SG50 Baby

Our inspiration started from the egg which symbolises New Life and the Jubilee babies and the gift pack are the compelling themes for SG50. The eight meaningful items symbolise all Singaporeans’ wishes, hopes and aspirations from this generation of Singapore to the next.

Memory Lane

This egg is a depiction of Singapore’s achievements and milestones in our 50 years of independence. The colour scheme is specially chosen to add a local flavour - with red as the background and white as the lives of fellow Singaporeans, the result is a Singapore Easter Egg with a flair. The red egg also symbolises good fortune and prosperity.
