Island City

  1. Jelly Shoes on original marjolica tiles in Saint Joseph Institution, now Singapore Arts Museum.
  2. Having Watermelon Volcano from Geylang Serai Ramadhan Bazaar.
  3. Cluster of coconut trees while tanning on Siloso Beach Sentosa.
  4. #OOTD on the steps of the former Supreme Court, now the National Gallery of Singapore.
  5. Everday essentials in my Louis Vuitton mini pochette that I carried everywhere.
  6. Shopping in ION Orchard.

I love my city very much. The glory of basking on the once imported sand, where an ideal brunch is having Kaya Toast with Kopi, enjoying the waltzing weather from hot to humid to the pouring rain and the sight of 30 story high HDB flats in your neighbourhood. This is where I was born and raised. This is my past, my future, my home.

I may not have majored in history with all the dates and figures recorded in a chronological timeline. But I can tell you the war time stories my grandparents told me as a child and how good I was at playing Five-Stones. I may not be able to tell you the specific height of the UOB tower. But I can show you where to find a bargain, what to wear on a humid day (while still looking cute), how to eat durian and the correct way to speak Sing-lish. And maybe, I may not care know the amount of hybrid Orchids we import in a year. But I can tell you what its like growing up in a rapidly changing, urban yet traditional, law-abiding, multi-racial, multi-cultural, multi-religious society.

I’m sorry if I can’t give you facts and figures, we have plenty of books (or Google) for that. But I can tell you what no amount of history books can; my very own experience in my very own Singapore.
