Do you remember the time when you were young and growing up in Singapore ? How was it like ? Different age groups will give very different stories of their memories that they grew up with and the younger generations today will not have the chance to go through their forefathers lifestyle and activities.

The National Heritage Board, is organising a Heritage Event, known as Heritage Along Footpaths, bringing us back in time and history, to re-introduce trades that were once common in Singapore. This would definitely suits the older generation because it would invoke many of their memories – childhood, teenager, growing up years and suits the younger and middle generation too, sharing the memories that their seniors/forefathers had last time. Here’s a map of the Heritage Along Footpaths event !

Some of the trades that would be re-introduced would be

– Street Barbers

– Cobblers

– Fortune Tellers

– Ice-ball Sellers

– Kachang Puteh Sellers

Heritage Along Footpaths will be held over 2 weekends in December 2011.

Dates : 3rd and 4th December ; 10th and 11th December 2011

Time : 10am to 5pm

Locations : The Singapore Art Museum and Stamford Arts Centre (along the mural wall facing Middle Road)

I am looking forward to go back in time into Singapore’s history, reminisce and enjoy the heritage and culture of our forefathers.
