Step into the former Tanjong Pagar railway station next Thursday and you will be greeted by a shoeshiner or a porter, transporting you back in time to the station's heyday in the 1930s.

Vintage trishaws and steamer trunks will greet you and you will hear the soft strains of Rasa Sayang, piped in overhead.

The transformation is part of culinary company My Private Chef's staging of its first pop-up theatrical dining series, Stories. To be held from Thursday to June 29, Stories aims to celebrate Singapore's history and iconic sites through food and wine.

Three-year-old My Private Chef is a recipient of Singapore Tourism Board's Kickstart Fund. The $5-million fund pays up to 50 per cent of selected costs - capped at $75,000 a project - for innovative lifestyle events and concepts that can bring in tourists.
