The “Red House in Katong” in the 1950s.
When I visited Katong last week to blog the walk the memories of the old places in Singapore, I discovered many new stuff which I did not know before.
With courtesy of Warees Investments, the investment arm of the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore, the big posters with information and photos were displayed below the overhead bridge, along the corridors of the shops for the public to read and share on this related blog.
More than a dozen organisations and individuals have expressed interest to run a confectionary business at Red House Bakery, the iconic bakery at East Coast Road – with about half of them being Malay-Muslims.
The bakery is part of The Red House, the first endowment project in Singapore to incorporate the social enterprise element. It is managed by Warees Investments, the investment arm of the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore.
The Red House managed by Heavenly Wang
I accepted the invitation to “来 LA KOPI WITH US!” at the Heavenly Wang and walked into the refurbished Red House of Katong for breakfast.
To capture the “memory-aid” photos here to share:
The old sofa set (foreground) and the original designed floor tiles are the relics of the Red House Bakery. (The white table and chairs at the back are new).
