This illustrated book reflects the heritage of Singapore's multi-cultural diversity. It reflects its charm, lively streetscapes and unique character through the interesting mix of traditions and businesses that make up the city. The book is divided into four sections. Part One look at familiar streetscapes often associated with Singapore such as Raffles Hotel, bumboats along the Singapore River and the iconic bandstand at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Part Two looks at the heritage tapestry such as sundry shops, wet markets, street vendors and other traditional business that are fast disappearing. The third section is on our cultural legacy such as Colonial buildings and ethnic enclaves. Last but not least, Part Four showcases Singapore's origin as a food paradise with illustrations featuring dishes and establishments that still favour the old-style way of preparation; handmade with pride and love. Each illustration captures the essence of what makes it special and includes a short write up that explains the part it played in shaping Singapore and its people.
The author is an architect in private practice. He has a keen interest in heritage and conservation and spends much of his free time exploring the streets of Singapore, sketching and taking photographs.
