By the Moon and the Tides at The Slow Press

What could a foraging Singapore look like? What did a foraging Singapore look like?

By speaking to three foragers - self-taught urban forager Esmonde Luo, Syazwan of Wan's Ubin Journal, and Firdaus from Orang Laut SG - we scrabble to uncover the past, present, and future of foraging in Singapore, a highly-urbanised, densely-populated city state.

Created as a way to de‐stress and express their creativity, Grace Hong’s personal artworks are distinguished by the witty and humorous ways in which they present what could come across as rude messages.


The Slow Press recently put out a special edition called By The Moon And The Tides ($28), focusing on prominent foragers in Singapore.

Featuring interviews with self-taught forager Esmonde Luo, Syazwan Majid of Wan’s Ubin Journal and Firdaus Sani of Orang Laut Singapore, the spiral-bound zine spotlights the practice of picking food directly from the natural environment.

Ms Chua says: “We don’t need business opportunities or advertisements, so we can feature more in-between stories. There’re a lot of good reviews and a lot of recipe books, but not enough focus on local businesses and the people who are exploring their own craft or food. This is just a very organic way of exploring how we can appreciate food better.”


Fundamentally contemporary and unashamedly personal, Grace Hong explores the emotional investment in design whilst championing the separation between work and life.
