About Me

"The struggle of man against power
is the struggle of memory against forgetting
- Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

I am a Senior History Researcher and Docent
with a Singapore-based heritage consultancy;

the Chief Curator of Hell's Museum,
a museum inside Haw Par Villa, a historic cultural park in Singapore;

and the author of Jalan Singapura: 700 Years of Movement in Singapore.

In my free time, I engage in history research,
urban exploration, and transport studies.

As a Singaporean, I believe it is my duty to lay claim to my country's rich heritage, narrativise it, uncover its many silences, and conserve it for future generations.

All views expressed in this website are my own.
