‘12 stories’ presents the 12 most common Singapore Food – in this case it alludes to those times where the essence of the selected food lies on the streets of Singapore. ’12 Stories’ also hints on the essence of these food – where their respective histories are to be rediscovered and told through the months of the calendar. Similar to the stories of old and the current, this intent could be an enriching one – unearthing the benefit of the series of migrations and celebrating the colours of diversity.
Each month of the calendar narrates the selected food prying its history in terms of its linguistic, geography and cultural exchanges. Rather than trying to find an overarching story connecting the months of the calendar, an exclusive story dedicated to each month is substantial as well as enriching.
