About “talking shop”:
In this session, our guest speaker, Dr Lai Ah Eng, will kick off the discussion with a topic on the landmarks that are characteristic of our heartlands. Kopitiams, provision shops, food stalls and markets in our local housing communities are arguably some of the little living heritage sites that make and mark the local community. For more information, see flyer.
Heritage, it seems, is no longer a thing of the past. Recently, there has been a clamour to save our heritage so as to preserve it for posterity as well as provide those of us in the present with a sense of rootedness to this place we call home. From old mosaic-tiled playgrounds to a centuries-old cemetery – what is heritage to you? What is your heritage? Why is it precious to you? Come share your thoughts with us about your heritage and why it resonates so deeply with you. This is a good opportunity for heritage enthusiasts to mingle with one another to talk about the topic that is dear to their hearts – heritage.
