Some residents in the Bishan-Toa Payoh area are aiming to set a local record for the largest Chinese character made with pineapple tarts.
About 80 residents got together over the weekend for a mass pineapple tart-baking session two weeks ahead of Chinese New Year. They are among the 600 people who have signed up for the project.
The tart-making will continue over the next weekend. After the bid to set the record to form the Chinese character for fortune, the tarts will be donated to charity.
Bishan-Toa Payoh MP Chong Kee Hiong also attended the session, which was organised by SCS Dairy, at the Allspice Institute in Bukit Merah.
Mr Chong said: "Everyone enjoyed themselves knowing that they are doing something for the needy within the community."
People who want to sign up for the bake-out can do so as long as they have bought at least eight SCS Butter blocks in no more than two receipts between Dec 1 and Jan 21.
They will be able to invite three people to attend the session along with them.
Each will get to take home a container of tarts, with the rest going towards setting the record.
