Caption: Having played witness to numerous key events in Singapore’s history, City Hall is certainly dear to Singapore and every one of its people. First constructed as the Municipal Building by our colonial masters, it was where the Japanese surrendered to the British, marking the end of World War II. Full internal self-governance was also formally declared here, with the unveiling of the National Flag and playing of the National Anthem. Many National Day Parades, including the first, were also held at the Padang in front of it, with City Hall serving as the seating area for VIPs. Most recently, a $532 million makeover, done with input from the public, has thoughtfully weaved it with the Former Supreme Court next door, creating the new National Gallery. Perhaps it is also is a reflection of Singapore as a nation. We started out as an accidental nation. In our quest for survival, we have pursued economic success at the expense of other aspects of life, such as exploring our heritage and the arts. However in recent years, there have been growing opportunities for us to delve into our history, pursue our passions and have a say in national affairs. This is just like how City Hall may have been merely an imposing and distant administrative building in the past but with the opening of the National Gallery, it has become more appealing to the masses. I myself have visited the National Gallery numerous times with a camera in tow and spent hours exploring the treasures it holds since it opened its doors to the public. City Hall is our shared heritage, and one which we can now play a part in as we move forward towards SG100.

Caption: I still vividly remember my first Singapore river cruise ride 20 years ago. Back then, there were few buildings and sceneries were less colorful. Recently, I board on the cruise again and will say that I had a totally different experience. It is a real pleasure and eye-opening experience to be able to sit on the cruise and look at night seneries and skyscapers. Looking at how Singapore develop and progress over the years, i feel proud to be a Singaporean. Singapore river is the most iconic place in Singapore where is reflect the past and present of Singapore’s history. Hence, I decided to document the Singapore River Cruise and participate in this heritage competition with the photograph.
