Nestlé Singapore, the brand name behind many well-known local household food products such as Milo, Nescafe, Kit Kat, Maggi and Milkmaid is celebrating it’s 100th birthday this year.
100 years of Nestle, with you
Heartwarming TVC by Nestlé Philippines for their 100 year celebration:
Yes, Nestlé has been with us longer than Singapore has been an independent nation!
To relive the good old times of yesteryears, the Nestlé Singapore team invited a group of bloggers to the Children Little Museum hidden in Bussorah Street in the Arab Street area.
At the quaint little museum, we revisited our childhood memories with Nestlé and were taught how to make and play with toys from a simpler era.
