Valentine’s Day is the day of romance - the day when you can expect lovey-dovey gestures and mushy handwritten notes. But at CHIJMES, it doesn’t matter if you’re single or attached. You can celebrate Valentine’s Day with your one true love and by that, we mean your best friend: your doggo, cat, bunny, or even your parrot!
CHIJMES is holding A Valentine’s Fairytail on 10 February for you and your pets, where PDA (Pets' Displays of Affection) is completely acceptable. There will be pet-centric activities, including pet weddings, pet adoption drives, as well as picnic and movies under the stars with your pet.

Not to worry if you don’t have a pet for A Valentine’s Fairytail! Come on down, spread the love, and adopt not shop. Bring a new fur-kid into your family with CHIJMES’ Adopt-A-Pet Drive - they’ve partnered up with animal shelters like Bunnies’ Best Buddies (bunnies), Hope Dog Rescue (dogs), Love Kuching Project (cats), and Uncle Khoe’s K9 (dogs).

Time: 12PM - 6PM

If you’ve always thought your pets look cute together, here’s the chance to make it official with a Pet Wedding Package. All packages include marriage certificates but they range from simple to elaborate. If you’re looking for a keepsake photo, the Love at First Sight Package ($20 per pet couple) works fine with the Bride & Groom collar tag props.

Those determined to splash out for their beloved pets can opt for the I Love You Package ($180 per 2 pet couples), which is a double wedding ceremony involving 4 pets. On top of the cert and wedding photo, you’ll also have customised Bride & Groom wedding costumes and tags for your pets.
The wedding itself will be held on the Lawn, but you can chill out with your pets in your own private boutique with catered food from El Mero Mero - a quesadilla, taco and choice of drink.
Although you can purchase the Love at First Sight Package on-site, you’ll need to pre-book for the Childhood Sweetheart Package and I Love You Package. Find more details on the Pet Wedding Packages here.
Time: 12PM - 6PM
