This website is a collection of projects related to the Singapore Gurkhas by two Singaporeans, Zakaria Zainal and Chong Zi Liang, who graduated from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University.

Based on their newspaper internships in Nepal in the first half of 2009, they were fortunate enough to be embraced by the community of the Singapore Gurkhas past and present – some hailing all the way back to the 1950s.

If you are keen to get in touch, fill up the form below and we will reply to you soon as we can.

This website is managed by Zakaria Zainal.
