Tour Story Do you recall those bloppers, back-of-house scenes on DVDs? Those scenes were precious. Called 'Uncut', they offered peeks of fun or unsavoury sights of how some blockbuster films were made. On this walk, we take you behind the scenes, where there are no rose-tinted lenses, we share Singapore as it is. At least of whatever that is left. Along Jalan Besar or ‘Big Road’ (in English), on the fringe of the city centre, of exceptional convenience for vices to thrive, we head off into back-alleys to view the Uncut version of our city-state. However, increasingly, it is also a destination for the cool, the fancy, the hip, and in no time at all the new will soon envelope its intangible cultural edges. A step too late and there’ll be no bling to peel, no hints of the industries that shun the limelight, those pages to turn and expose its underbelly goes crusty. We’re still ahead of time, but barely. Join us, put on this blockbuster DVD and enjoy the "show" we have curated for you.
