Description
Ever wondered what Keong Saik Road was like before it was filled with today's modern restaurants and cafes?

恭锡街的故事:李国樑与梁凤霞联合导览

日期:52

时间:上午10

恭锡街有许多时尚的餐馆和咖啡座,重新打造前的恭锡街是否一样充满饮食文化气息?这次的“行行走走恭锡街”的导览活动,李国樑(《广东马姐》作者,新加坡国家博物馆中文义务导览员)将和大家一道分享这个地方早期的生活风貌,包括当年居住在牛车水那一群梳起不嫁的妈姐的故事。在恭锡街长大的梁凤霞,也将和大家分享所经历过的富有异样风情的生活篇章。充斥着公馆妓院的红灯区、大清早逐家逐户清理夜香的挑粪夫、以及来自印度的雀提亚人的估俚间和“妈妈店”,都是值得重温的人文变迁。

导览语言:华语和广东话

收费:每人$20
