Reviving the Kampong Spirit with Durian Mobilisation at Hong Lim Park

300 people gathered at Hong Lim Park last Saturday evening. No, this is not a protest against any MDA regulation or Population White Paper. They gathered at Hong Lim Park to participate in Durian Mobilisation 2013.

The Durian Mobilisation was first started in 2008 by Dr Leslie Tay from ieatishootipost. The event aims to promote kindness over Singaporeans’ common love for the king of fruits. This year’s Durian Mobilisation is supported by Singapore Kindness Movement.
Dr Leslie Tay has been actively involved with charity and profits from the Durian Mobilisation 2013 will also go into charity causes, including donation to the Prison Fellowship Singapore to organise a similar durian gathering for the inmates and their families.
