Free Admission

Pulau Tekong, once home to over a dozen villages, is the largest of Singapore’s natural offshore islands and holds a special place in many Singaporeans’ hearts. The residents of Tekong had resettled on the mainland during the 1980s when the island was reclaimed for military purposes. Fondly remembered for its pure and unadorned beauty, the island’s landscape has undergone many changes over the years due to land reclamation works.

In the third edition of the Memorial Hall’s public lecture series on Pulau Tekong, brothers and former Tekong Island residents Lea Geuang Fiyau and Lea Guan Chong share their recollections of growing up in Pulau Tekong Besar and Pulau Tekong Kechil.

Conducted in Mandarin. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration required.
