Dear Members & Friends,

Come on this tour to discover some hidden gems in the western part of Singapore !

Tiger Balm- the panacea that everyone has heard of and used for all our aches and pains. But do you know that¬†there is a Tiger Balm Garden built in 1937 by the two Burmese brothers,¬†who popularized the Balm? Better¬†known as, it is like no other place in the world, with hundreds of statues and dioramas¬†dramatizing Chinese legends and folklore. The sculptures are meant to be a reminder to ‚Äėwalk the straight and¬†narrow‚Äô and are lessons on virtues and morality, where in the past, legions of parents would bring their children¬†to impress upon them these values.¬†Next, we will check out an organic shop in the biggest wholesale centre in Singapore for vegetables and fruits.¬†We will get a short shop tour, possibly sample some products and for those who shop.
