The First Settlers...
(20 to 31 Oct 2002)

As promised, we opened our doors on 20 October 2002. First came Andreas, who brought Adrian, who brought Mort, who brought Skippy, who brought... And that was how it all started.

We organized our very first excursion on 28 October 2002. Everyone at The InnCrowd got up at 3.00 a.m. and marched down Serangoon Road along with the Hindu devotees taking part in Thimithi (Hindu fire-walking festival). Together we walked to the Sri Mariamman Temple along South Bridge Road and witnessed a sea of devotees walk across the red hot coal pit. More than 3,000 devotees participated this year.
