On Jan 20, an exclusive group of CNA Lifestyle’s Facebook followers and their friends had the opportunity to participate in a special heritage tour and lunch in the lead-up to the premiere of a new TV series, Becoming Singapore.
The show, hosted by Eunice Olsen, explores the history of Singapore through Olsen’s own personal stories.
28 adventurous participants spent a morning touring locales rich in culture and history, including Fort Canning Park, Kampong Glam, Raffles Place and the Siong Leng Musical Association.
At each stop, local experts, who feature on the show, regaled them with facts and stories about the area and its unique characteristics.
After a good few hours of exploration, the participants tucked in to a sumptuous feast of heritage-inspired cuisine at the National Museum of Singapore.
The dishes, including unique offerings such as rojak pie tee, blue pea flower nasi ulam, braised wagyu beef cheek rendang and soya sauce chicken roulade, were specially designed and presented by MasterChef Singapore finalists Shamsydar Ani, Sharon Gonzago and Genevieve “Gen” Lee.
