As creative beings those of you out there whose job is to organise spectacular functions, a lot of the time may be spent searching for an individual concept or unusual idea. And finding something distinctively unique can sometimes feel like finding lost treasure. To that end, we’ve searched high and low for things both locally and abroad that are sure to inspire. Jurong Bird Park Singapore’s Jurong Bird Park is home to an array of feathered friends as well as function spaces. Take your group for a black and white dinner in the penguin exhibit which features more than 200 penguins from five different species. Guests can dine all the while being mesmerised with penguins flying through the water from the custom- made viewing gallery. The park also features the Lodge on Flamingo Lake which is a three-storey glass restaurant that looks out on the flamingo- filled landscape. There is also a range of outdoor venues to suit all kinds of events. With picnic grounds, a ‘Splash’n’Slide’ station and up-close encounters with some of the inhabitants, Jurong Bird Park has the perfect combination to keep everyone entertained.
