In Singapore, Akshaya Tritiya is celebrated on the 8th of May 2008. On this day, it is said that there is no need to look for a good muhurtham to start off any auspicious work as the entire day itself is auspicious!. To summarize, it’s a believed that during this day :

– Kuchela visited Krishna in Dwarka with a handful of beaten rice (aval)  – (Krishna Avatharam)
– The Pandavas received the Akshaya Pathram (bowl) from Lord Krishna – (Mahabharatam)
– Parashurama Jayanti is celebrated 
– Sri Vyasa began the composition of Mahabharatam

I have found 3 good websites that explains its significance and how it is celebrated. I hope you will visit these sites and find out more about this auspicious day.
