Rachpal Kaur Tulsi
“The Real Kampung Chick”
Singapore Tourism Board Licensed Tourist Guide (English)
A first generation Singaporean, Rachpal has lived through a time when Singapore’s geography was primarily small clusters of villages (kampung), homes without electricity and toilets were outhouses where “poop” buckets were cleared daily by “nightsoil” collection workers.
That’s how she’s come to be known as The Real Kampung Chick – with golden nuggets of stories through her lived experienced of seeing kampungs making way for tall buildings and modern Singapore that we know today.
Rachpal started her career in 1995 in the Singapore Government service in the social service sector focused on building cohesive communities in Singapore’s HDB estates. Trained in Psychology and Politics, Rachpal’s interest had always been on the welfare and wellbeing of people who live in close proximity in flats within densely populated towns.
