Episode sum­ma­ry
HDB flats are a ubiq­ui­tous sight in Sin­ga­pore, but we do not pause to look at them, and real­ize that every block and estate has it own unique­ness. With­in its walls, these flats hold the sto­ries, hopes and dreams of many. They are just like your every­day, under appre­ci­at­ed house­wives ­– some­one so inti­mate­ly close to our dai­ly lives, yet some­one whom we tend to take for grant­ed.

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.

    Sigh…why fam­i­ly nowa­days not as close as before? I can still remem­ber the fun occa­sion gath­er­ings 20 years ago…but now most of the fam­i­ly mem­bers only meet once a year…
