A series of documentaries highlighting the heritage of the four major races in Singapore, this episode illustrates the stories of the unique race of Eurasians, a community embracing the dilemma and adventures of two worlds, Europe and Asia. In this episode, Katong area was featured heavily here about how the Eurasian community helped to build up this estate with churches and schools.

The children of two empires, Europe and Asia, the Eurasians were among the first to have laid their footprints in Singapore. But as Singapore’s Eurasian community diminishes, tales of its storied culture buried beneath the sands of time are begging to be told.

Through their journey of heartbreaks and triumphs, we relive the glory days of the past and unravel their tales of resilience.
