Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to live in the so-called kampong era, before Singapore transformed from a fishing village to a vibrant metropolis? Mummy Soh’s home is an opportunity to go back in time and revisit this era, with her urban farm, cooking school, art gallery and community centre.
One Kind House
Visit the welcoming home of Mummy Soh, which has been transformed into an all-in-one urban farm.
Retired school teacher, affectionately known as Mummy Soh, has transformed her traditional Singaporean home to offer you the chance to catch a glimpse into local life in a modern kampong home.
In the past, Mummy Soh’s house was located next to kampongs, which housed a multicultural mix of Malays, Eurasians and Chinese all living in harmony in one neighbourhood.
In her home, she frequently hosts dinners and conducts cooking classes, maintaining an open-door policy to encourage the exchange of ideas and keep traditions alive through these community events.
In the past, Mummy Soh’s house was located next to kampongs, which housed a multicultural mix of Malays, Eurasians and Chinese all living in harmony in one neighbourhood. Unique to Singapore, the ‘kampong spirit’ was alive as mothers would gather and exchange recipes, while the children made friends and wandered around the villages.
During your One Kind House experience, Mummy Soh will teach you how to whip up farm-to-table local favourites like Fish Laksa, Mee Siam, and Chicken Curry. Almost all components of the dishes are made from scratch, from the extraction of the coconut milk to plucking the chilli, ginger and lemongrass from the garden to make the various pastes.
