The National Archives of Singapore is responsible for the collection and management of records relating to the nation’s political, social and economic history. It was established in 1968, three years after Singapore became an independent country. I go there for work sometimes, and find more personality in my country in its past than its present.

    I have just recently discovered archive work for my storytelling, and I am really enjoying it. You never know what kind of stories you will dig up…
    Happy A to Z! πŸ™‚

    I love archives! It’s so humbling and awe-inspiring to think about who might’ve been handling these documents decades or centuries ago, and what they’ve lived through.
