Tanjong Malang

Once upon a time, there was a seaside settlement in Southern Singapore called ‘Tanjong Malang’ (literally means “unlucky cape” in Malay), somewhere between Tanjong Pagar and Telok Ayer. Watch this 2.5min video to find out more about this lost place and its treasured relics, some of which we can still find hidden in our central business district today. The story unfolded with rolling images of my Acrylic painting, accompanied by a Pantun recital (Malay poetry) by my friend Sarafian Salleh. The background music “Getaran Jiwa” composed by the late P.Ramlee added to the nostalgic ambience. I hope you enjoy and also learn something new about Singapore’s history in this 4th of 10 Singapore heritage paintings I painted recently. Thank you!
