Special care for Homeless Animals on this Christmas will be given by the people in Singapore.
Which animals fall under the category of “Homeless”?
These animals are those that have been left on streets or met with an accident.
Special care will be given to these animals by a bakery in Singapore in the form of minced fish cookies,mashed peas and chicken pies.
The people who want to make their contribution in this noble cause, can pay for these animals at The Barkery Singapore and the animal bakery which is managed by family will give them to Animal Lovers League,Action for Singapore Dogs and Zeus Communications.These three are the shelters for the animals.
Singaporeans can feel the position of the shelter dogs that they do not get the privileges as pets get. Also these animals do not have families,homes and even toys. So people there have decided to provide such animals nutritious food.
Ricky Yeo ,President of Action for Singapore Dogs, claimed that people in Singapore are benevolent enough and hence will contribute maximum on this Christmas.
Also 10 percent of the money collected for food will be given for the nourishing of shelter animals. This noble cause drive will last till end of December 2011.Kind Singapore!!!

By the way what is Nutcracker?
Well this is a ballet or dance group and the theme of this has been taken from fairy tale known as “The Tale of the Nutcracker” by E.T.A. Hoffman. This fairy tale is related to a child who enjoys a magical journey and that too in a fantasy world on Christmas Eve…How interesting !!!
The Nutcracker will happen from 8th December to 11th December at the Esplanade Theater.
But this year, SDT i.e. Singapore Dance Theatre is organizing the Nutcracker in a different way and that different way is that the Nutcracker will happen in an Asian Twist and hence moving the setting to Shangai from Europe.
Director of SDT,Janek Schergen,that this move of theirs will attract more people because of many Asian dancers.
This show will have many small segments which in turn will reflect the technical skills and also the beauty of dancers.
STB,Singapore Tourism Board, are developing campaigns in order to allure people from China to come to Singapore.
STB has also started with the campaign known as “New Discoveries” in Beijing,China and with this campaign the needs of people in China will be catered and hence this resulted in more specific marketing campaigns.
According to the research, it has been concluded that there are many people from China who visit Singapore.So STB will join hands with the three famous travel agencies in China which are Ctrip,CYTS and GZL International Travel Service and they will introduce new package holidays.This step will fall under the “New Discoveries” campaign.
Also people who have booked a packaged tour for Singapore ,now can customize their schedule and also can take the facilities of flight and accommodation services.
This unique idea of introducing Singapore to others will include countries like India,Malaysia,Indonesia,Australia apart from China.
A new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between Temasek Polytechnic (TP) and National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS) in order to excel in the Travel Industry.
The Humanities and Social Sciences schools of TPs will come together and join their hands in researching the requirements of older travellers.
The research process begins with the data collection ad hence the the travel companies will be contacted for this.After examining the data, the same will be shared in conferences.
The main aim is to get deep knowledge on the latest travel trends of people having age greater than 50 years and hence provide them better services according to their requirements.
Some of the results have come from US and Europe and it has been concluded that the people of age 50 and more travel more and the unfortunate point to note that they are not being catered. Travel companies make arrangements according to young generation.
Singapore – as one of the fastest ageing nations and it will be oldest by 2050, and to prove this, both NATAS and TP have joined hands and want to explore the Silver Travel Industry.
To reap the benefits of this Silver Travel Industry, NATAS will work with students of TP who have interest in travel and hence work for the growth of this industry. Also NATAS will give prizes to students who have given their best and will also provide them scholarships with training programs.
