Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

Abbey: Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is a two-storey collonial house locate at Balliester, Singapore. As history, it was the focal point for planning uprising for Xinhai revolution as well as the communications center for the Japanese during their occupation. Arts, artefacts and calligraphy are being displayed on both floors of the building. 

During our visit on Chinese New Year, they spread Chinese lanterns tailed with questions on the veranda for the visitors to answer to get a prize.

WILL: National Heritage Board is so serious in preservation of Singapore's treasured history. We went to a villa at 12 Tai Gin Road  where was Dr. Sun Yat-Sen used to stay here in Singapore. 

This villa houses the original photos, paintings, letterpress cylinder printing machine, letters, various revolutionary propaganda and more. 

First day of 2014 Chinese New Year when we went here. As a custom, they handed us 2 pieces of oranges for each of the visitor. This is a really good day for us!
