The final episode of NHB's "Heritage in Episodes: Season 2" focuses on the boat operators of Pulau Ubin and explores the history as well as the future of the trade.
This exhibition explores the development of Singapore art in light of the rapid changes that took place in Singapore after World War II.
Pulau Ubin lies on the Straits of Johor off the North-eastern coast of mainland Singapore, separated by Serangoon Harbour. It was known as Granite Island ("Chieo Suar" 石山), as granite from the island was used to make floor tiles or jubin in Malay.
The second episode in this project focusses on the history of Queenstown and comprises interviews with long-time and former residents of Singapore's first satellite town.
Located along Mount Vernon Road, the Bidadari Memorial Garden was developed by the National Heritage Board in 2004 to commemorate the history of the Bidadari Cemetery, one of the oldest cemeteries in Singapore. The cemetery was located along Upper Serangoon Road, near the Woodleigh MRT station.
