100 Years of Good Food, Good Life with Nestlé Singapore

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.

    I think that retro game is called Chang Kat or something like that. Used to be entertaining and fun for me. Hahas =)

    Wah, you really captured a lot of details that I didn’t even see that day! Nice!!! That retro game looks like a condensed version of “congkak”. And they are playing chatek or chapteh, not sepak takraw (which is with a rattan ball). 🙂
