Singapore Memory Project - Chinatown Photowalk


As part of Singapore Memory Project (SMP), the National Library Board launched ‘My Home, My Library’ – Singapore’s first nation-wide exhibition across all 25 libraries in Singapore – showcasing unforgettable memories and stories of people, places and events relating to their homes, neighbourhood and libraries.

And the instagrammers network (@instasg) invited a group of instagrammers to join them on a guided walking tour by Aik Beng (@aikbengchia) to explore some of Singapore’s ‘forgotten’ landmarks and gems.

The tagged pictures (#sgmemory) will be part of NLB archive – to be preserved and shared with future Singaporeans. Quoting Aik Beng, “the simple photo we take today can be a special memory which could be lost in 10-20 years time.”

Come to think of it, this is such a meaningful event, I will definitely be looking at things around me with a very different perspective from now on.

Here are some of the instagram photos I have taken.
