The Singapore Chapter...... My place of birth ..

the spot where once stood the house I was born..

Pasir Panjang Hill..... Thats where I was born, in a house above a garage ( Someone told me no wonder I am crazy with cars ). This was a row of about 3 or four garages with accomadation above them.  Its strange that I still remember the green colour of the building.

Pasir Panjang Road 5 1/2 ms. Later we moved to a kampung at 5 1/4 ms. (I might have my facts wrong and maybe ASH can verify it )  In fact it was only at age of 20 or 21 that we moved out of Pasir Panjang and moved to the West Coast area ( at no 58....see my past posting )

 in front of the spot...

The junction of Pasir Panjang Road and Pasir Panjang Hill hasn't changed much in he sense that I could easily recognize the place. However as we drove up the road, things changed.  There was nothing there to remind me of the old. BUT, I could recognize the spot of the old garages due to the bend in the road which, thankfully , didn't changed much at all. The place was just filled with mansions all along the road.

The photos showed what I mean and I wished I had picture of the old Pasir Panjang Hill.

Never mind sunnysideup - you got the spot right.
Nothing in Singapore can ever be left alone - including burial sites. One day the whole island will be moved - it will be quite a moving experience eh? ha ha!

Ya....I heard they are fixing giant propellers and giant jet-ski motors along the coast. So expect the island to move in case....
