🔍Some history of Samsui women:
They came to Singapore as cheap labourers between the 1920s and 1940s, Samsui women worked mainly in the construction industry and other industries that required hard labour.
Before arriving in Singapore, most Samsui women took vows never to marry, although there have been known exceptions. They lived in cramped conditions with other Samsui women, helping out each other and forming tightly united cliques.
Their contributions to housing construction and as well as labour at hawker centres have been invaluable to Singapore's early development.
