A Visit to Eurasian Community House on 20 July 2013


Singapore Heritage Festival 2013 was held from 19 July to 28 July 2013, all over Singapore. I was delighted that there was an opportunity for me to attend some of the guided trails in Singapore during this period.

I took part in The Eurasian Experience Open House & Tour at the Eurasian Community House at 139 Ceylon Road (near Dunman Road and Tanjong Katong Sec School area)

Beautiful ceramic painting of Portugal port near the entrance of Eurasian Community House…

Eurasion Heritage Centre is located inside the Eurasian Community House.

Eurasian Heritage centre is open from Tuesday to Sundays from 10am to 6pm, Closed on Monday.

The volunteer guide for Eurasian Heritage experience – Ms Michelle Tessensohn

Ms Michelle Tessensohn did a very good introduction to the Eurasian Heritage Centre and shared quite a lot of interesting Eurasian culture with the visitors. I didn’t know that she’s the great granddaughter of Mr Edward Tessensohn. Tessersohn is a German surname as I know sohn means son in German (eg Mendelsohn = Mendel’s son)

By the way, Tessensohn sounds familiar right? Hmm….

Yes, it’s One of the Singapore road near Balestier Road and Race Course Road area. The road was named after Mr Edward Tessensohn, a Eurasian who came from Malacca.

Do visit their showcase at Level 1 The Eurasian Experience and Level 4 The World War II – The Eurasian Story and Level 4 Roots of Our Community to find out more about the interesting culture. Europeans settled in Asia and married local Asians and their descendants are known as Eurasians. Heard that a lot of Eurasians are active in media industry such as Cheryl Fox (Channel News Asia), Class 95 DJ Jean Danker and DJ Vernatta Lopez.

In Singapore, there are also quite a number of roads that are named after Eurasians at around Kovan Road/Upper Serangoon area (Simon Road, Aroozoo Avenue), Little India Area (Desker Road).

I managed to see some beautiful Eurasian teenagers performing Eurasian dance such as Jinkli Nona. The portuguese folk music sounds very joyful and lively and makes people want to dance along with the music.

Here’s the music with the dance (in 1 of the youtube videos):

Picture of the beautiful dancers:

Tasted the traditional Eurasian sugee cake (heard it’s quite difficult to bake this type of cake) with the wonderful almond smell… freshly baked from Quentin Restaurant at Eurasian Community House. Yummy.

It’s good to try some Eurasian food to understand more about the unique Eurasian culture with the fusion of European and Asian taste.

Perhaps you can come to Quentin Restaurant to try out some Eurasian dishes such as Curry Debal (Devil’s Curry) and other delicious Eurasian dishes. Quentin Restaurant is located at Eurasian Community House, 139 Ceylon Road. You can visit www.quentins.com.sg to find out more about their menu, and promotions.

Quentin’s Restaurant – OPENING HOURS​: Tuesday to Sunday, CLOSED ON MONDAYS
