When 47-year-old Robert Arokiasamy passes a coloured wall near his heartland home in Teck Ghee, Ang Mo Kio, he smiles with pride. On it is a 10m-long photo-art mural he and his neighbours helped to create.
My Heartland Memories, a community project that saw more than 50 Teck Ghee households depicting various scenes of neighbourhood life through more than 200 sketches and photographs, was unveiled during a welcome party at Teck Ghee Vista last Saturday.
The carnival-like event was held to celebrate the move of residents into newly upgraded homes in Teck Ghee Vista, under the Selective En bloc Redevelopment Scheme.
The mural wall can be found on a rooftop garden above a multi-storey carpark, in between Blocks 307A and 308A in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1.
