The Last Tiger 2019 by Yip Yew Chong
The Gambier plantations in the Bukit Timah corridor, carved out of jungle, were infested with wild tigers. Deforestation forced the tigers to prowl the plantations and villages. When the incidents of tiger attacks on plantation coolies increased, the then British government issued rewards for capturing the tigers. The last wild shot in Singapore on 26 Oct 1930, was at the 10th Mile Choa Chu Kang Villlage.


    Gambier 2019 by Yip Yew Chong
    In the 1800s, many Gambier plantations lined the Bukit Timah Corridor. These were widely cultivated in Singapore for use as a dye, herbal medicine and food additive.
    The mural depicts how Gambier was processed in the olden days.
    By early 1900s, Gambier plantations become less popular as people turned to growing pineapple and rubber which were higher in demand.
