Dakota Crescent is one of Singapore’s oldest public housing. Built in the late 1950s, the iconic architecture have long been taken for granted. But since the announcement to redevelop the antiquated houses, no small amount of visitors have flocked to the quaint and unassuming housing estate, hoping to capture the last vestiges of Singapore’s first public housing.
So we discovered that the British Museum in London was showcasing some of the oldest exhibits and artefacts from all over the world (hence, the titular name “Treasures of the World”) at the oldest museum in Singapore, the National Museum (how apt)!
Hey everyone! It’s been a while, but this week we’re introducing another Makan Hunt (check out our first one here, featuring dim sum).
One of our favourite cuisine (but mostly Sandra’s) hails from the wonderful country of Korea! Korean food is well-known and a quasi-staple in Singapore, with various dishes making their way into the diet of Singaporeans- thinking of bibimbap, kimchi, Korean BBQ, ginseng chicken soup or bulgogi?
This week, we cover our hike through the heart of Singapore (literally), at two scenic reservoirs, namely the Upper Peirce and Lower Peirce Reservoir. These neighbouring reservoirs serve as water catchment areas, and form part of the network of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. Further, the flora and fauna surrounding the reservoirs provide a natural setting for visitors and hikers alike! We had the benefit and guidance of Sandra’s close friend, Sarah, to lead us in this naturalistic adventure around some of Singapore’s oldest reservoirs!
