I came across a picture of my old estate on the internet and not only that, it spoke of the very block I lived in for many, many years. It also tells us the history of how the block came about. You can read it here. A rather unique beginning I suppose and to think from that spawned many tales that made up most of my childhood and growing up years. I was born in the estate and lived in the centre of it for the first 23 years of my life and the sight of it, till now, brings back memories and familiarity second to none. It feels like home. I am sure my siblings will still vouch for that!
And the view we had was really something else. In Singapore during the 70s and early 80s to have a view like this in front of your flat is unusual in fact, even a privilege. And every night, we were treated to the fountain’s water dance complete with coloured lights! I wish there was a video of that somewhere so I could share it with you.
