A Lighter Side of History: The Ghosts of Orchard Road’s Christmases Past by Jerome Lim

Description
Synopsis
Orchard Road, the jewel in Singapore’s shopping crown, takes on an added sparkle every Christmas. Once populated with trees producing a spice worth more than its weight in gold, Orchard Road’s new “plantations” yield a harvest of a very different gold; one that glitters especially brightly when its Christmas lights are switched on.

Join Jerome as he shares fascinating stories that trace the evolution of Christmas lighting along Orchard Road over the years.

Limited spaces available. $5 per pax, includes a presentation and light refreshments.

Speaker’s Biography
Once told that it was his destiny to wander through life, Jerome Lim wanders through Singapore’s evolving landscape in search of stories that bring places and buildings to life. His blog, The Long and Winding Road, features some of these stories, told through words and photographs. The blog was twice named the Best Photography blog at the Singapore Blog Awards.

Jerome is actively involved in documenting Singapore’s heritage and constantly changing landscapes. He has also collaborated with agencies like the National Heritage Board and the Singapore Land Authority to conduct heritage walks for events such as the Singapore Heritage Festival.
