ABOUT THE EVENT

Is national heritage the only kind of heritage that matters? What does our personal heritage say about ourselves, and can we revisit our past to redeem ourselves in the present?

As part of the launch of 17A Keong Saik Road by Charmaine Leung this month, we'll be talking about home and belonging – but with a twist. What if we think of heritage not as something that predates us, but a half-formed mound of clay which we will shape: a creation of past and present. How then can writing be a tool to help us in the shaping process and to finally come into acceptance of where we belong?

ABOUT THE EVENT

Take a walk with Charmaine Leung, author of 17A Keong Saik Road, down memory lane, and revisit Keong Saik of the 1970s. Having grown up in a shophouse on Keong Saik Road when it was a prominent red-light precinct, Charmaine recollects the stories of the place and its people then.

*Ma Je were a group of women who came to Singapore from Guangdong, China, in the early 20th century to be domestic housekeepers. Pei Pa Zai were young female songstresses usually of the ages sixteen to twenty who worked in the entertainment houses in the late 1940s – early 1950s. The Dai Gu Liong (loosely translated as ‘big ladies’) referred to matured women who were usually older and also offered sexual services to customers in the entertainment houses and brothels.
