Memories of Serangoon Garden Reunion 2017
With thanks to my heritage friend, Geri, who invited me to the “Memories of Serangoon Gardens Reunion” at the Serangoon Gardens Country Club on 18 February, 2017.
The occasion was the 3rd reunion of the “Memories of Serangoon Gardens” Facebook group, which was attended by about 70 people. The group page was started by Geri in 2012.
It was my first time to the Serangoon Gardens Country Club and I needed some help from Googles to get direction and map guides.

Geri grew up and went to school in Serangoon Gardens in the 1960s and early 1970s. Mike and Geri left Singapore over 40 years ago and presently live in Canada with their children, grandchildren and immediate families. They have made numerous trips back in the last 10 years to meet up with relatives, friends and former schoolmates.
They missed their favorite traditional local food and would meet with their “makan kakis” to revive their memories of the familiar taste and smell of the food with which they grew up in Singapore.
Memories of their past trips to Singapore to share on YouTube videos here .
