A Visit Down Memory Lane
(Peranakan Museum) 14 October 2014
Enter the world of the Peranakan!
The residents together with our volunteers had great fun traveling down memory lane of the nostalgic past with the visit to the Peranakan Museum.
The Malay term ‘peranakan’ which means ‘locally born’ also refers to communities that developed in Southeast Asia like the Chitty Melaka and Jawi Peranakans.
It was an engaging experience as the residents and volunteers exchange views and laughter as they explore the cultural traditions and the distinctive visual arts of the Peranakans. Many of the residents were thrilled as they were able to connect with the exhibits and some even sharing life experiences of their rich heritage in the past.
It was indeed a great outing as it rekindled fond memories of life in the 40’s and 50’s for the residents.

During the month of July, our residents had the opportunity to visit the world’s largest aquarium - S.E.A. Aquarium™. They were all blown away by the breath-taking beauty of the ocean and its inhabitants. With more than 800 species of marine animals, the aquarium is home to majestic manta rays, enormous goliath groupers, Napoleon wrasses and other gentle giants of the sea. Through the planet’s largest window to the ocean, our residents could totally immerse themselves in the magic of underwater life.
The residents also came face-to-face with over 200 sharks, which is the closest they can get to these fearsome ocean predators. By the end of the visit, the residents were unanimous that the wonders of our blue planet are indeed endless.
