Where We Come From: Stories and Memories of Cantonment, Keong Saik, Tanjung Malang and the Tanjong Pagar Area by Ethos Books
Imagine when with people, you have the ability to peer into their being able to peer into people's memories of past places and times. Some of these memories overlap; some diverge. In your mind, they come together and form an intricate pattern, offering you a glimpse into the times your grandparents and your parents have lived through.
This ability is yours to have, when you join this digital conversation with our three speakers. Charmaine, Sarafian, and Wai Han bring together their childhood memories of the 1970s and 80s: businesses in Chinatown, family visits to the mosque and makam (tomb) at Bukit Palmer, the way of life in Keong Saik. Memories of stories as told to them by their parents.
An appreciation of where we come from gives us with a deeper appreciation of where we are today.
