The Philippines was one of the participating ASEAN countries in the Passion Arts Festival 2018: ASEAN Arts of Wonder which was held on 7 July 2018 at the Tiong Bahru Plaza.

The Philippine Embassy, together with other ASEAN embassies, showcased their respective unique cultures through their booth exhibits. The Embassy’s booth was among the favourite by the crowd, especially to the young children who admired the miniature Philippine jeepneys, dolls in their Philippine costumes, wooden carabaos and the sungka, a Philippine board game.

Filipino Community dance groups, Kultura Performing Arts and the Filipino Dance Club, awed the audience with their rendition of Aray Chavacano and Tinikling, respectively.
