This lovely gown is a wedding cheongsam which has been treasured and kept safely by my mum for 6 decades. Worn by her during her wedding in 1956, it has a special significance to our family as it has been with us from the tumultous early years of Singapore in the kampong days to modern and peaceful Singapore. Having been with our family through our many house changes over the past 60 years, it has become part of our family heritage and has a special place in our hearts.

I’ve been living with my grandparents for the past 18 years and every single day without fail in the evening around 5.30pm, my grandmother would place joss sticks into this bronze pot. Even the days when she was in hospital my grandfather would offer the joss sticks in her place. Remarkably, ashes in the pot have not been cleared since she purchased the it some 30 years back. While this may not be a practice I will continue, it is definitely one of the most striking examples of heritage I can find in my life. This unwavering sense of tradition and daily routine passed down from the previous generation is also something I really find extremely admirable.

Caption: Fullerton – This neo-classical architecture is an inspiring display of Singapore’s modern eloquence. From housing the General Post Office, Singapore Club, exchange rooms and government offices to a renowned boutique hotel today, Fullerton Building’s timeless beauty facade dates all the way back to 1928. Being a prestigious hotel and with the conservation efforts to maintain the architectural wealth within its walls, Fullerton Building is now a national monument and a tourist must-visit place in Singapore.

The traditional Chinese puppet show is a rare sight nowadays. The performers have to manipulate the puppets and sing or talk at the same time, making it a difficult art to master. I hope new successors can be found to continue the art in order to preserve our cultural heritage.

Elgin Bridge – Elgin Bridge, which crosses the Singapore River and links North and South Bridge Roads, is located in the Downtown Core of the Central Region. In 1863, the iron bridge originally named Thomson’s Bridge was renamed Elgin Bridge, after Lord James Bruce Elgin, the Governor-General of India (1862-1863). Singapore’s first bridge was erected around 1819 where the current Elgin Bridge stands. In November 1822, a wooden footbridge called Presentment Bridge, also known as Monkey Bridge, replaced this original crossing. In 1844, it was replaced by another wooden footbridge designed by J. T. Thomson, and the bridge was renamed Thomson’s Bridge. By 1862, the Thomson’s Bridge was replaced by an iron bridge imported from Calcutta. Renamed Elgin Bridge in 1863, in honour of Lord Elgin, the Governor General of India .This first Elgin Bridge was demolished on 24 December 1926. The present concrete bridge is the fifth bridge and second Elgin Bridge built on this site. It is supported by three arches with slender hanging columns carrying the deck. It has steel frames encased in concrete. Built by the Public Works Department, it was opened to traffic on 30 May 1929.  This was reused for the present bridge structure.

Boat Quay along Singapore River – Boat Quay, a river embankment on the Singapore River, is one of the oldest and most historical areas in the Central Region. From early times,  warehouses thriving with economic activity, lined the banks of North and South Boat Quay. Many of these original buildings have been preserved, and are now places of entertainment. Today, towering buildings rather than warehouses mark the skyline. Bumboats and barges were banned since the Clean Rivers Campaign started in September 1983, except for those that serve as river taxis for tourists. Boat Quay has now been revamped and is a popular place for food, recreation, entertainment, and a pubbing lane for the yuppies that work at Raffles Place.

The Cobbler – when was the last time we go to a cobbler to repair our shoes? The younger generation of Singapore may no longer be familiar with the cobbler because when their shoes are broken, they prefer to buy new ones. At People’s Park Complex, our memories may be brought to tens of years ago, when we see a lot of cobblers peddling their services there. One of the cobbler told, now, most of people use his service is pioneer generation and foreign workers.

This is a photo of the Tiong Bahru Club Singapura. The Tiong Bahru Club Singapura has a heritage style brought out with retro-fitted furnishing. The architecture of the building is very unique, it is designed like an old-school coffee shop with vintage tiled floors and traditional small household ornaments The food served there is extremely diverse, serving cuisines from each race in Singapore. When I go there, I feel very homely. Now in Tiong Bahru, new cafes and shops are opening, thus many people are worried that the area may be losing its historical charm. Hence, this place is significant as it is embracing the old.

Dawn, the golden hour arrives – the moment where time seemingly comes to a halt, as I stare into the distant at the setting Sun. The clouds outlined by the last burning fire while it engulf the Sun.

Time resumes as the last light gradually casts a shadow, gently blanketing my Hougang neighbourhood into a silhouette, signalling the end of a day.

At a glance Singapore like everything else, seemed to follow a strict structural template, especially its landscape design. The housing flats standing side by side; cluttered – allowing little breathing space. But if taken a closer look, with different perspectives, we can find beauty. The architecture exudes the beauty of stability and order with every layer measured and made to perfection.

Haw Par Villa might have lost the crowd, but it is still, if not more charming than ever.

Singapore Botanic Gardens is a place where nature and man made structure co-exists. Every step is a human emulation of nature with planned plantation and landscape. In a world where nature makes way for buildings and cars, this might be the best way for both sides to come to an agreement of co-existing.

Red wooden clogs are also included in a Chinese bride’s dowry. Two pairs of clogs, beautifully painted in red, make up part of a traditional Chinese dowry. Sadly, making traditional Chinese clogs is a dying art. It is increasingly difficult to find these type of clogs as they have to compete with more modern footwear. Nowadays, these clogs are becoming more of a tourist souvenir item than everyday footwear.

Vanished – This shophouse does not mean a lot to me, but it certainly does to someone else. Through the years, we will inevitably lose some of the things we hold dear. Gentrified; gelded; or even gutted in its entirety. But what’s most important is that though our traditions will evolve, though the urban landscape will be altered, our history will never change. This picture pays tribute to the old hardware shops that line Jalan Besar, as the bustling city whizzes past them. Will they vanish in the near future? Will they be forgotten by the same city that once stood by them in times of hardship? No one knows for sure. But at the very least, I know that this photograph may be one of the few tangible manifestations of these shops if they are reduced to nothing but a memory. And that is the story behind this small contribution to our collective history.
