Kampungs were once a part of the Singapore landscape. The word kampung, which means a Malay village, is more than just a physical structure. It encompasses a unique way of life, values and philosophy, some of which have remained intact, at least in spirit, till this day. Sharifah Hamzah takes you on a trail of getting to know the kampungs of Singapore, its history, customs and the people who grew up there and lived the life. She also weaves in her own memories and reflections of kampung life to make it into a semi-memoir, straight from the heart. Family photos and artistic illustrations of kampung objects add to the experience of the book. In Kampung Memories, one enters a part of Singapore that existed not so long ago. In Kampung Memories, one retains a slice of Singapore heritage that shaped so many people on the island.
