Classic Ethos Tote Bag (limited edition)

Siglap at the Crossroads: Memories of Its Only HDB Estate

This is a full‐colour spread of photos and stories that capture the sights and heartbeat of Siglap HDB housing estate.

“Sometimes, we don’t appreciate how precious some things are until they are gone. The quiet blocks of HDB flats at the junction of Siglap Road and Upper East Coast Road documented in this book are just one of them. Even those of us who are familiar with the Siglap area have long taken their existence for granted. They seem to have always been there, and will always be there, just like their residents, shops and other businesses. Alas, that is not so. Soon they will be gone....
Beyond lamenting its impending demise, Hema Kiruppalini and Mindy Tan have done the next best thing – to record and document the estate and memories of its residents for posterity.”
— Dr Kevin YL Tan, President, ICOMOS Singapore Past President, Singapore Heritage Society
