When we think Singapore, many of us would probably think of the tantalizing food that is available 24 hours a day island-wide and the many races that live in harmony. How many of us think about buildings and places?
If buildings and places could talk, they would tell generations of stories. Well a good way to find out more about our buildings and places in Singapore is to join the LovingSGtrail contest. Not only will you find out about the history, customs and traditions, you stand to win great prizes!
