Bum Boat - A blue and white illustration depicting older Singapore before the big Singapore River clean up in 1977 where bumboats were used mainly as form of transportation along Rochor, Kallang, Singapore rivers, along coast of mainland and nearby islands.

Boat Quay shophouses forms the main facade of this illustration, In 1860s it handles more than 2/3 of all shipping business. The south of the river resembles the belly of a carp and accoording to Chinese belief, this is the exact spot where wealth and prosperity colide. Hence that is the main reason where the shophouses were built where they are.

Singapore Skyline - Sitting by the Marina Bay treats you to a view of one of the world’s most futuristic cities, with vintage bumboats cruising across the Singapore River. The Singapore skyline is a fascinating mix of old and new, blending colonial buildings and Chinese shophouses with cutting-edge skyscrapers – reminiscent of the city’s character. One of the fastest-developing cities in the world has seen itself grown vertically since its independence, and even faster over the past decade – undeterred by its 719.1 km² dimensions.

We do not ship internationally for this item due to the risk of enamel chipping in the process of transportation. Please note that each tiffin is hand made so there will be some slight variations.
