New commemorative bell at Mount Faber marks 50 years of Singapore-Polish relations

The newly renamed Poland’s Bells of Happiness on Mount Faber were unveiled on Tuesday, October 29, after the addition of a second commemorative bell of the “Dar Młodzieży” tall ship.

The new bell commemorates the first anniversary of the vessel’s Singapore port of call in October 2018.

It will be symbolically united with the existing Faber Peak’s “Bell of Happiness” from the majestic Polish ship “Dar Pomorza” – which was believed to bring good fortune to newlyweds and has rung in many wishes for joy and happiness since it was gifted to Singapore in 1992.

With the two Poland’s Bells of Happiness now hanging side by side, they will continue to bring joy and “double happiness” to all who ring them, welcoming an everlasting and blissful future.

The bells were unveiled in the presence of Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure, Minister for Transport of Singapore Khaw Boon Wan and Minister of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation of Poland, Marek Gróbarczyk.

The occasion also marks 50 years of Polish-Singapore diplomatic relations that reflect the maritime traditions of the two nations. 

“We are very honoured to be the recipient of the new commemorative bell of ‘Dar Młodzieży’, marking 50 years of Poland-Singapore diplomatic relations. This bell could not have come at a better time, especially as we celebrate the Singapore Cable Car’s 45th anniversary," said Buhdy Bok, Managing Director, One Faber Group.

The Singapore Cable Car is an iconic attraction that has captured the hearts and minds of locals and tourists, and played a significant role in the Singaporean tourism landscape for the past 45 years.  

In celebration of the Singapore Cable Car’s 45th anniversary, One Faber Group has rolled out year-long line-up of exciting activities, promotions and F&B creations at Mount Faber from March 30, 2019 till April 2020.

Guests can look forward to new experiences at refreshed offerings such as 100M Private Dining, Miraculous 2, as well as the newly refurbished Arbora Bistro and Singapore Cable Car Gift Shop @ Faber Peak.
