SINGAPORE PRESS CLUB SOCIAL+ PROGRAMME
(SATURDAY, 25 SEPTEMBER 2021 AT 5.30PM - 7PM)
Breaking News: Singapore's Hidden Secrets Uncovered.
Discover Singapore’s hidden secrets in a first-of-its-kind walking tour!
Journey into the past with an ex-offender tour guide to once-sprawling opium and gambling dens, on streets where police cases of triad members took place.
Guided by ex-offenders, the hour-long tour spans five pit stops, with both guides examining the area's history while sharing about their past with personal anecdotes of their former gang life.
Alvin Chiong, one of the guides has shared that “With this project, ex-convicts can contribute too. I hope to mentor and pass this on. Instead of asking for help all the time, I want to break this cycle. We can help ourselves, contribute and help others too.”
Finally, hear first hand accounts in a up-close and personal dining experience with an ex-offender who will share their personal stories over a wholesome meal! *For those who have not been vaccinated, takeaway meals can be arranged.
