Samsui Women - Hong Tou Jin (红头巾)
This is my sharing from the wonderful experience of street mural photography session at Chinatown yesterday. Although there are many beautiful shots of murals, my favourite shots are those of the Samsui women – Why? Because I have seen them in Chinatown, when I was a little girl.
Samsui women were the heroines of yester-years that Singapore needed. Their struggles were real. Many worked well into their 70s. These ladies were once the backbone of our developing infrastructure, just like our current foreign workers who are building our country today.

Sharing by Catherine Ding:
What can you remember looking at this mural?
Each mural depicts the simplicity of life in Singapore Chinatown, beautifully and painstakingly drawn by the artist. We are amazed at his talent and effort!
What can you learn from the past?
I missed the good old days when life was simple, and there was much delight and satisfaction over a cup of coffee over a small table with friends.
How would you share with the younger generation?
The best things in life do not need to cost a lot. AND value friends, who can brighten your day.
