“Boat Quay is the place where everything in started in Singapore. I choose this as a representation of Homeland because without this place, Singapore will not be what it is today. I remember watching this place transformed from dilapidated old warehouses, with old junk boats floating on the murky Singapore River, into a vibrant F&B enclave, against the backdrop of skyscrapers. We have come a long way. I am proud to call Singapore home.”
