SOCH 1st gathering

Dear supporters of the SOCH initiative,

For a start, we will have the 1st SOCH tour at the Palmer Road Tua Pek Kong temple to show you the important architectural features and artifacts to record with your cameras. Those of you who do not have a 8mp or above SLR camera, you are also welcomed to join us in the inspection of this Hakka temple built in traditional Teochew style architecture. We are starting the 1st field work at this temple because this building is facing the possibilty of demolition. If it happens, an almost two century historical artifice will be obliterated in the name of property value. Whatever it is, at least we can archive it in digital images for the benefit of our future generations.

Time: 10.30am
Date: 24 June 2006
Venue: 50H Palmer Road, Hock Teck See
