Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us

Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us.  - Oscar Wilde, "The Importance of Being Earnest"

The Fullerton Hotel, a heritage icon since 1928

I'm a big fan of snail mail and have a soft spot for nostalgia.  The Fullerton Hotel is launching a lovely contest that invokes both of these things.

The "Post A Memory" contest welcomes creative submissions of letters, photographs, videos, music and art of any Singaporean resident or international traveler. They are asking all of us to share our fondest memories of the hotel as part of their 10th anniversary celebrations.  I would have done this regardless (sucker for these kinds of things, like I said), but to make the contest all the more sweet, the best 3 submissions will win a weekend stay at the luxurious Fullerton Suite, Loft Suite and Heritage Room.

Old school post boxes from the colonial days

I'm assuming the only limitation is that your entry has to be able to fit within the mouth of the gorgeous red post boxes located in their lobby.  The Fullerton Hotel was once home to Singapore's General Post Office, The Singapore Club and the Chamber of Commerce.  The now 400-room luxury hotel is proud of its heritage since 1928 and hasn't done much to change its lovely architecture over the years.  Within the hotel are Red Pillar Post Boxes, the same post boxes found along the streets of Singapore during the British colonial rule in the mid 1800s.

The contest ends at 5pm on 31 August 2011.  The winner will be announced on 30 September.
