P3 SS LJ - Heritage Walk along Katong 2018
Our Primary 3 girls took a relaxing walk along Katong area on 10th,11th and 12th July with their teachers and parent volunteers. The re-developed Katong, which was once filled with coconut plantations, is now a charming corner of eastern Singapore. As they walked along this vibrant neighbourhood, the girls admired the many well-preserved Peranakan homes, shophouses, colonial bungalows and eateries.
Blessed with fine weather, the girls were in complete awe as they saw for themselves the unique pre-war architecture – colourful two-storey shophouses and terrace houses with ornate facades, intricate motifs and ceramic tiles.
The 6 highlights of the walk were:
1. The Karikal Mahal (former Grand Hotel), once a large mansion built by Moona Kadir Sultan for his numerous wives.
2. 25 Chapel Road, a house raised on piers, tells of a time and place forgotten - a time when the song of the sea could be heard from the nearby shore.
3. Katong Antique House, a museum of Peranakan artefacts, housing family heirlooms and antiques.
4. Single-storey conserved terrace houses built on raised grounds (to protect against the rising tides) which stood beside a former sea wall where the beach used to be.
5. Chin Mee Chin Confectionary, one of the last remaining Hainanese coffeeshops, still resembling its original 1950s shop design. Best known for their kaya, coffee and sugar rolls.
6. The Church of the Holy Family, founded in early 1902 by four Eurasian families where the first Christmas mass took place in 1936.
The trip was an experience our girls thoroughly enjoyed as they navigated back in time, something we often take for granted in our hectic daily lives.
I learnt that there are many historical buildings around our school neighbourhood that I did not know of before the learning journey. The décor of the houses and the Peranakan tiles on them are beautiful. I never knew our Katong neighbourhood would be so full of history and colour. The best checkpoint was the preserved houses at East Coast Road. They were so colourful!
