Episode sum­ma­ry
The play­ground is a place of mag­ic for any child, a land where worlds are cre­at­ed to be any­thing an imag­i­na­tion can muster. Alas when age catch­es up with us, we grow dis­tant from these places that used to be so dear to us as chil­dren. They are like our grand­par­ents, who have sat qui­et­ly through the years – look­ing over us and watch­ing us play, peo­ple whom we remem­ber to be a big part of our lives when we were kids, but whom we some­times for­get about as we grow up and start to live our own lives.

Ongo­ing: I Remem­ber KTM: A con­test organ­ised by the Nation­al Library Board in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Redis­cov­er­SG. 5 sets of our Unseen/Unsaid paper toys to be giv­en away week­ly. Find out more here.

About Unseen/Unsaid
Using nar­ra­tives from every­day Sin­ga­pore­ans to per­son­i­fy for­got­ten trades and places, Unseen/Unsaid allow view­ers a glimpse into the per­son­al strug­gles of indi­vid­ual Sin­ga­pore­ans whose sto­ries draw a par­al­lel with the sur­round­ing places and land­scapes. The 10-part series is born out of a desire to pre­serve the frag­ments of Singapore’s past that is rapid­ly being replaced by new devel­op­ments.

One new episode will be released from 29 June, 2011, every Wednes­day, 11.00AM on till the week of 31 August, 2011.

The Unseen/Unsaid Paper Toys Col­lec­tion
As a tie-in with our Unseen/Unsaid series, Lizzy and Jere­my of the Redis­cov­er­SG crew have spent the past few months design­ing a set of five paper toys relat­ed to the people/places fea­tured in our webisodes.

These DIY paper toys are retail­ing at $20 for a set of 5. 100% of the pro­ceeds from the first 500 sets sold will go to the MILK (Main­ly I Love Kids) fund to sup­port chil­dren from dis­ad­van­taged back­grounds.

If you’ll like to buy a set, head over to our shop. Toys are sold while stocks last. We ship both local­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly.

    The play­grounds that we played at when we were young kids, were all dif­fer­ent over dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions. Some didn’t even sur­vive, only can be found in his­to­ry books, pho­tographs, while like the Drag­on Play­ground is still around and hope­ful­ly longer.

    While we traced back our child­hood days to the play­grounds, it’s true that par­ents and grand­par­ents would trace back too, when they were watch­ing over us hav­ing fun at the play­grounds, just like the play­ground did. As we asked our­selves by dis­tanc­ing away from our child­hood plays and dreams, have we lost some­thing deep in us?

    It’s a great video, to remind us of our roots, fam­i­ly, child­hood, play­ground and how much we have progress today, yet we must not for­get them as we grow up and lead our own lives.
