Getting here

Everyone has a story to tell, and we are giving you a platform to tell yours. What is that one item that reminds you of home while you're away from home? It may be an everyday object that you take on your journey, or something intangible like a distinctive way of speaking that you overhear while travelling, or even the aromas of cooking that make you crave for the warmth of home. Let us know your story @acm_sg and tag it #HomeandAwayACM and #sgheritagefest – and we’ll share it with the world. Come tell us your story of home!


Follow these steps to share your story: 

  1. Post a photo or video of your item on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
  2. Write a short description of about 100 words on how it reminds you of home when you're away from home. 
  3. Make your profile public and tag us @acm_sg – and be sure to tag it with #HomeandAwayACM, and #sgheritagefest.
  4. Get featured here or on our Instagram Story.
