10 Things that make your grandparents Singapore's #OGs

Updated: Dec 20, 2019

Take an elderly family who has lived in the same house and amassed a collection of things from the past 30 years. De-cluttering their house during Project HomeWorks is like opening up a time capsule of a version of Singapore that people haven't seen in decades.

There's also nothing quite like uncovering these vintage finds to bridge the generation gaps between our elderly who lived & breathed the era of analog, the sandwich generation who were transitioning to digital and the millennials.
