Singapore Food Trail - Antique

Besides food, there is a small section at the Singapore Food Trail where there's a display of antique at a corner of the food centre.

Hahaha most of the items are what we had during our childhood. Those cabinets where they kept the bowls and even the bowls are what I used to have in my parents' home when I was a child during the 60s. But they were thrown away when my parents shift to a new home cause they were all damaged and old. We never see them as antique back then hahaha.

These bottles of soft drinks were what we were looking forward to during Chinese New Year when we were children. Back then they were considered luxuries cause we could only afford to have them during festive periods. After drinking some bottles were sold to the rag and bone man (person who collect recycled items and sell them for recycled purposes) and some bottles were used to double up as rolling pins for my mom and siblings to make pastries during the festive periods. The glass bottles were made from good and strong materials, I remembered my mom used it to crush some peanuts and the bottles wont break.

Infront of the food centre is this drawing of hop scotch, a game we used to play when we were young.

Interesting that things from our childhoods are now already considered antiques.

I've just been to the Singapore Food Trail last weekend and not only is the 1960s concept wonderful, the food was great too. Saw on their retro TV screen that their hawkers are sourced from all over sg. A must visit if you're in town!
