Betty Wee’s early retirement provided an opportunity to do a three-year stint as a volunteer in Israel. While there, she did pit-stop vacations in Europe where her curiosity for tour guiding was sparked.
On her return to her native Singapore, she stumbled upon guiding at the museums and she is presently on a roller-coaster ride discovering hidden stories everywhere. Whether in the museums or out on the streets of Singapore, whether related to nature, culture, or heritage, she is discovering stories just waiting to be shared.
Her enthusiasm and energy are boundless, and Betty was recognised in 2010 when she was an Active-Ager Awardee, due to her active volunteerism.
An avid walker and jogger, she enjoys exploring both new and old places and takes joy in the natural beauty of her surroundings—in their many forms! Betty loves to wander the streets of the rich historical neighbourhoods of our island, and is at the same time fascinated by the gentrification taking place in so many places.
