Caption: Down the aisle, Bliss on her face, On him a smile, Heart’s running a race. In the house of God, They swore their vows, Love they have sought, The moment is now, Family and friends on their feet, Eyes with awe, on them they glue. And love was complete, As they said” I do, I do” – This photo shows the interior of Saint Joseph Catholic Church located in Victoria Street in Singapore. Being there is like taking a step into history to where it all started with the preserved Gothic architecture and stunning interior. The origins of Roman Catholicism in Singapore dates all the way back to 1511 when the Portuguese colonized Malacca and introduce their religion to the people. Missionaries from Malacca slowly came to Singapore and planted seeds of the Roman Catholic Gospel. Slowly, the Roman Catholic community started to bud and grow in Singapore. In 1821, due to the needs of those Roman Catholic, the first Priest set foot in Singapore. Since then, many Roman Catholic Churches began to be established in the country. Saint Joseph church was one of them. It was constructed by the Portuguese Mission with a Gothic Revival Style from 1906 and it took 6 years to be completed. In 2005, the church was gazetted a national monument. Till today, its still standing right where it is.

Caption: When we were young, our playground and toys were everything which we could find that was around us – the puddle after the rain, the sand at the beach, the sticks and branches on the field and water fountains like this. It’s unusual to see children playing like this these days, relishing in the fun and enjoyment with every inch of their body. Now, we more often see their eyes and hands glued to screens and devices.

Caption: Intensive ponders, Calculate the moves. The sound of mutters, Which path to choose. With men to protect, On grid that is stagnant, And kings to attack, With pieces not dormant. What shall I do? “I’ve made my move” that he said. I played my turn, kept my cool, Sorry pal, it’s a check mate. Also known as English Draughts, Checkers is a game that has long history. Tracing its origins is seemingly impossible but many argue that it might originate from the Land of Ur some 5000 years ago where a board resembling the game today was found. The game was played throughout the centuries primarily in Europe. In the early 1840s, competitive Checkers was introduce as men from all over the western world come to together to fight it out on the grid. In this photo, the game was played between two Chinese men, attracting keen onlookers. This was taken in Chinatown, Singapore, which has history that dates back to 1330 when Chinese traveller Wang Dayuan notes that there was a chinese community within a then lesser known island in South China Sea known as Temasek, now called Singapore. And the chinese community mainly gathered in Chinatown. Under the subsequent Raffles Plan of Singapore to divide the island’s land based on ethnic groups, the identity of Chinatown as a neighborhood for Chinese people grew and more Chinese immigrants flocked. Through this photo, we see the come together of both Chinese and European heritages as Chinese people are enjoying the European game with zest. And as a melting pot of many different races, this is a common sight in Singapore.

Caption: This is a photo of Chinatown area with part of Singapore skyline taken from the 50th floor viewing deck of Pinnacle @ Duxton. Over the years, Chinatown has changed and evolved, but it remains our beloved enclave of culture and tradition, defined by the very people who live, work and play on its streets. I especially like the blend of modern and old architecture in the photograph as it reflects Singapore’s status as a modern nation with strong traditional values.

Caption: I alighted somewhere along the East Coast Road, where the Katong Antique House was situated. Armed with two lenses, I took a couple of shots before it started to drizzle. Many foreign women and men, as well as locals, made their way along the East Coast pathways. An older man in particular, caught my attention. He was on the other side of the road, walking back and forth with no destination in mind.
