More views of the Chong Pang of old

2 06 2010

Judging from some of the comments the post on Chong Pang Village, there appears to be a fair bit of nostalgia for the Chong Pang that existed in the good old days. Today, what is left where Chong Pang stood are just some memories. A lot of the inner roads of the village including Bah Tan Road, Teo Lee Road, Scharff Road, Chong Nee Road, Chong How Road and Verapillay Road, have all disappeared and in their place, the new HDB estate of Sembawang has risen up. These photographs have been added for the benefit of the those who would like to remember the Chong Pang Village of old days, when life seemed to revolve around the roundabout where the old Sultan Theatre was located …

For anyone who would like to share your memories, stories and photographs of the old Chong Pang, or connect with others from Chong Pang Village that you may have known, you are invited to join the Memories of Chong Pang group on Facebook.

Life revolved around the roundabout where Sultan Theatre was located.
