Our Neighbourhoods: We ♥ Serangoon Garden
- About the Authors
Home to the beloved Chomp Chomp Food Centre and the iconic Serangoon Gardens Circus, Serangoon Gardens—or affectionately known as Ang Sar Lee to older Singaporeans—has been designated an “identity node” by the Urban Redevelopment Authority since 2013. Its distinctive charm is derived from its rich heritage that seeps into its thriving present; from a nameless Malay barber that has been in operation for more than 20 years because of its loyal customers, to the conserved shophouses that have become synonymous with the area.
With the artists from Urban Sketchers Singapore, we journey through this quiet and laidback suburban estate, where nostalgia and modern convenience seamlessly blend, resulting in a unique atmosphere that is unlike anywhere in Singapore.
Urban Sketchers Singapore is an informal group of artists who draw the places they visit, capturing what they see from direct observation on location. Visit www.usk.sg for more details of their sketching sojourns.
