CCK Gets Ready for Hari Raya Aidilfitri with Light-Up

Check out the more than 1,000 ribbon ‘ketupats’ handmade by residents of Bukit Gombak lining Bukit Batok West Avenue 5 and soak in the festive atmosphere.

The lights and decorations are put up on 11 April to mark the season of Ramadan and the lead-up to Hari Raya Aidilfitri and is the first such event in the western heartlands of Singapore.

“This beautiful light-up is a symbol of hope and love after a year of battling the Covid-19 pandemic. It lifts up all our spirits. The sparkling lights also demonstrate the shiny resilience of our residents and multi-racial bonds,” said Ms Low Yen Ling, Grassroots Advisor to CCK GRC and Minister of State for Ministry of Trade & Industry and Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth.

The effort to deck out Bukit Gombak with lights and festive decorations was led by the Hillview Community Club Malay Activity Executive Committee and the Bukit Gombak Traders’ Association.

Ms Low, who is also Mayor for South West District, said: “This ground-up initiative by our Malay residents and Bukit Gombak shopkeepers show the warm multicultural ties and ‘gotong royong’ spirit in our estate.”

If you don’t want to make the trip down to Geylang Serai, why not just pop over to our own little ‘mini Geylang Serai’ at Bukit Gombak for your Hari Raya shopping.

Whether you are looking for yummy snacks and delicacies or decorations or fashion items, the shops at Bukit Gombak Neighbourhood Centre will surely have something that suits your needs. 

In the spirit of giving back to the community, the Bukit Gombak Traders’ Association also donated $6,000 to Ar-Raudhah mosque, which went towards gift packs comprising daily essential items for 300 beneficiaries.

“We hope this inaugural effort will strengthen our multiracial community bonds, and boost the unity and resilience of our Bukit Gombak family,” said Ms Low at the light-up. Joining her at the event was fellow Grassroots Adviser to Chua Chu Kang GRC, Mr Gan Kim Yong, who is also Minister for Health.
