I got the chance to be a part of this ‘huge’ project, work with very brilliant, talented and committed young and old people alike who share the same passion and love for heritage. Here’s a shout out to the following groups who coordinated with the Heritage Conservation Society – Youth in making this event successful: (more…)

(Note: I didn’t want to peg this as some scary blog entry. However, it seems like the one of the most interested and popular things about MET is its story of being haunted.
