Our Hawker Centres - A Heritage & Art Project (Part 1)






40 Hawker Centres across Singapore are getting super art murals on their walls by July this year in celebration of SG50. More than 70 schools and organizations have taken part in painting them with paint donated by Nippon. This aims to showcase the heritage of singapores hawker centres and the areas they are in.

With time ticking on, towards my end date, my friend and I have set ourselves a challenge to photograph all 40!

So far just 20 have been completed, Part 1 are those 20........

Ok, phew..... so that was the first 20 Hawkers centres and Markets that have decorated them with murals to celebrate SG50. All I can say is if I have missed a mural, I'm sorry... but I am just glad this was a project on the artwork and not having to sample food a EVERY market I visited.

The following 20 coming up..... hopefully I will achieve this before I leave Singapore in the near future :)
