About This Book

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. Part 1 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 2 looks at the heritage tapestry such as sundry shops, wet markets, street vendors and other traditional business that are fast disappearing. Part 3 is on our cultural legacy such as Colonial buildings and ethnic enclaves. Part 4 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.
