2004 – North East Virtual Heritage Trail


Back in 2004 (I was in Secondary 3), I was given an opportunity to participate in the Singapore’s North-East Virtual Heritage Trail website competition organized by Temasek Polytechnic and North East Community Development Council.

I led the project with the design and coding of the website. The content materials were gathered by my team.

We presented this website and won 1st runner up.
