The WTA Finals team ran a contest asking fans to help us decide what goes into the “With Love, WTA Finals SG”, welcome pack. Our fans did not disappoint! The entries we received were a good reflection of items and flavors that are cherished in Singapore.
The Cookie Museum Cookies (Champagne Lychee)
The Cookie Museum is a Singapore brand that produces cookies in locally-inspired flavours such a Shrimp Laksa, Nasi Lemak and Chili Crab. A mix of champagne, lychee, honey and macadamia nuts, these bite-sized delights provide a delicious introduction to the taste of Singapore.
Thank you, Xiuming Heather Leong, for recommending this!
Merlion Chou Chou Plushie and Merlion Nano Block
The mythical Merlion has the head of a lion and the body of a fish. It is an iconic emblem of Singapore, a chimera that signifies courage, bravery and anticipation for the future while capturing the roots of Singapore’s underpinning as a fishing village and seaport.
Thank you, Nelly Ong, for recommending the Merlion Chou Chou Plushie!
Thank you @goldensettennis for recommending the Merlion Nano Block!
An item that could be included in the welcome pack is the ‘nanoblock Merlion’. . The Merlion is the national personification of Singapore – the fish body represents our origins as a fishing village while the lion head represents “Singapura” (lion city). A mythical creature unique to Singapore, the Merlion is one of the most famous tourist attractions. . This could be a fun gift for the players; assembling nanoblocks is something that people of all ages enjoy doing. It would be a good way for the ladies to kill time on their long flights. Furthermore, the finished product could serve a display in their homes as a memory of Singapore. . @wtafinalssg #wtafinals @ahmanda_qsy . . . http://www.toysrus.com.sg/merlion_8517755/

Do you speak Singlish shirt
Singlish is the English-based language spoken colloquially in Singapore. Singlish has its unique slang and syntax, which are more pronounced in informal speech. While English is the primary language of communication in Singapore.
Thank you, Joanna Low, for recommending this!
Probably the best way to learn Singlish and sound like a local - playing cards with explanations of Singlish words which our players can use during their time in Singapore.

We are just as excited as you are to welcome our players with this! Stay tuned…
