We pride ourselves in following the indomitable spirit of our co-founder, Geraldene Lowe, in offering out of the ordinary tours (some walking, some by bus, some a mix!) and other events with an emphasis on the heritage, history, and culture of our "little red dot" of an island.
Jane & Geraldene first became friends when Jane & her family moved to a delightful shophouse in the famous Emerald Hill enclave in 1999. Gerri asked if she could bring visitors to see it, to which Jane agreed as she was keen to share her lovely home with others. Jane now takes her own groups to see interesting homes, historical monuments, and much more all over Singapore - and fortunately has found many like minded people also willing to share their homes, their time and their stories!
Jane’s love affair with Asia started on her arrival as a “wee lass” in Singapore (by boat!) in February 1963.
A native Brit, life has ensured that she has boomeranged back to Asia - as a trailing teenager in 1970, followed by 2 stints as a trailing spouse from 1999, in the middle of which she sandwiched 6 years in New York City.
She’s grasped opportunities to get involved, and sees her volunteer work with Friends of the Museums (FOM) as nothing less than life changing. She served as its President in 2003/4, has guided in 3 museums, coordinated the Explore Singapore! Team, led Study Tours to other parts of Asia and ran film & book groups.
An excellent organiser & administrator, she’s a passionate ambassador for her adopted home of Singapore. Particularly interested in heritage & history, she is also a keen supporter of the performing arts.
A true citizen of the world, she speaks mother tongue English, excellent Spanish & good French, with a smattering of other languages, eg Portuguese & Italian, poor Malay & almost non existent Chinese – leaving plenty of scope for self improvement!
