So Much Noise On Oxley Rise, Where’s The Discussion On Heritage Value Of Geylang Serai?

FROM GEYLANG SERAI TO OXLEY ROAD – Defining the sense of place

It seems that this month has been about the heritage and identity of a place – from the debate about the character of the annual Ramadan bazaar that formed the heritage of Geylang Serai; to the contestation over the fate of 38 Oxley Road.

Just as one could argue that the heritage value of 38 Oxley Road merits that of national consideration; so does that of Geylang Serai which has been part of the heartbeat of the Malay and Muslim community in Singapore.
