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.

  1. 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). 🙂
