Last(ing) impressions

6 10 2015

Sunday, 4 October 2015, was the day we said our farewells to an old neighbourhood at Blocks 74 to 80 Commonwealth Drive, which will soon be demolished. The farewell to neighbourhood built at a time of great need during the transition from statehood to nationhood and known affectionately as the ‘Chap Lau Chu’, Hokkien for ‘Ten Storey House’ for its 10 storey flats, would have left a last and perhaps lasting impression on the large numbers of people who turned up for Sunday’s farewell party

I have my kindergarten there during my childhood and also so many Bakery Shops in the past. Beside the blocks are the Queenstown Gas Works which is similar to Kallang Gas Works. There were a Chocolate Manufacturing Plant located there, my mother was the worker there before it move out or shifted to Malaysia.
