What better way to bring people together than with music, the language of the soul? Specially organised for Volkswagen owners and their friends, the music events feature homegrown musicians covering a wide range of genres from jazz to a cappella to even Mandopop! For instance, Glee Music Night, held two months ago in April and led by John Khoo and Deniece Foo of MADDspace by the Singapore Show Choir Academy, saw participants dancing and singing along to some of the TV show’s greatest hits; while Mandopop Music Night, held in collaboration with Millet Music in December 2015, involved a rousing performance of classic tunes by the “4 Heavenly Kings” and teaching participants the different chords used in Mandopop.

2. Keep up a healthy lifestyle

Understanding fitness and eating well are integral parts of a healthy lifestyle, Volkswagen regularly puts together unique health and wellness events at the showroom, inviting participants to work up a sweat and take home some great tips from the experts. In October 2015, Jessica Sinclair, founder of The Yoga Mandala, conducted an invigorating yoga class for Volkswagen owners and their loved ones; and to kickstart 2016, Volkswagen invited Dr Melvin Look from the Pan Asia Surgery Group and Cheryl Tay, founder of Rock The Naked Truth movement, to give a workshop on positive thinking and healthy eating habits.

3. Treat your taste buds

From hawker favourites to an exclusive four-course dinner prepared by an esteemed chef, you can never go hungry at Volkswagen’s food events. One of the highlights is Makansutra Amazing Graze, held last year in collaboration with Makansutra. Some 24 teams of Volkswagen owners raced around Singapore to hunt down eight popular hawker stalls, solving fun puzzles along the way to obtain clues and at the same time learn more about Singapore’s unique hawker culture. The race concluded with Makansutra founder KF Seetoh giving away prizes to the top teams.

4. Advance your career

Local funnyman Hossan Leong was “privileged lady of means” Miriam Leong-Lim for the night, entertaining participants with her hilariously dramatic antics as well as witty jokes about current affairs. This event was also held to unveil the winner of Go Away’s Drive For Good campaign, a charity campaign supported by Volkswagen and featuring Miriam Leong-Lim alongside five personalities in a series of videos.

6. Bond with your family
