Did you grow up in an urban environment and want to experience life in a traditional kampung with no electricity and the only source of water is from a well? Or did you grow up in a Kampung and wish to revisit your childhoods in one of the few remaining kampung homes in Singapore?
According to a post on Focus Ubin forum, one of the last few remaining Malay families on Ubin has opened their doors (to a 200 year old kampung house!) to groups interested in visiting them or taking cooking lessons.

You could also contact the family directly if you wish to organize group outings. However, as the lady does not live on Ubin, she only goes back on weekends.
