Magical road journeys: Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1

18 11 2014

On a bright and sunny morning, the light of the newly risen sun, in streaming through the glorious canopy of trees, transforms a stretch of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 into an enchanted world. The stretch is one along which I have made many a journey, having opened in 1977, when I was living just off it. It is only in more recent times that I have seen it cast in this magical light, best observed in the half an hour or so after the sun has come up.

Dear Jerome,

My name is Daniel, and I am currently doing up a heritage gallery about the history of Ang Mo Kio. I came across your blog post and there are several pictures and write-ups that I would like to use.

Would it be possible to contact me to dialogue more please?

Thank you.
