Celebrating Orchard at Ngee Ann City

On National Day 2013, Ngee Ann City and National Heritage Board had a day of fun filled National Day Celebrations event at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza, with entertaining cultural performances and educational heritage themed exhibitions. A few of us, friends from the social media arena, photography and heritage buffs, came together and contributed to this event at Ngee Ann City. There were led and coordinated by Jerome, with participation, support and photographs contribution from Francis, Juria, Zinkie, Man Kai, Judith, Kenji and myself!



The theme was “Celebrating Orchard” and what Orchard Road means to us from our eyes and hearts. Since we all grew up in different eras of Singapore’s growth and expansion, certain parts of Orchard Road means a lot more to me than others who are older or younger than me. When I was growing up, Orchard Road wasn’t as busy and crowded with many new shopping malls today. The places in Orchard Road that I grew up with was Plaza Singapura when you have the lovely delicious food outlets at the basement, Centrepoint a.k.a Centrepoint kids and their open air McDonalds eating area, Cathay Cinema when there were only 2 cinemas and it wasn’t a cineplex. During my photography walkabout to prepare for Celebrating Orchard, I walked around Orchard Road and rediscovering what Orchard Road means to me through my memories and translating into the modern Orchard Road today. There were many memories of what Orchard Road was last time and now today.



It was great and wonderful to be part of the Celebrating Orchard Photography Exhibition, it’s also an honour for me too, this is my 4th time that my photographs were featured in exhibitions, adding on to a list of my works, mentions, engagements and achievements! A few of us came down in the morning of National Day 2013 to view our Celebrating Orchard photography exhibition and catch up with fellow friends/contributors. We helped each other took photographs beside our exhibited photographs and also a fun group shot with 3 of us inside, Jerome, Juria and myself!

Moving ahead, I hope that I am able to contribute more through my photographs and story telling, “as an aspiring photojournalist who turns photographs into stories” written down as part of my new personal bio write up. For this write up, I have to thank Chrissy, fellow UQ alumnus who helped me with this write up for my personal bio! I believe that we can all make a difference and this is where I photograph, document and share the stories and memories of old and modern Singapore.
