About This Book

Street food hawkers, pirate taxis, monkeys in the Botanic Gardens, Great World Amusement Park, the Tai Tian Kiew Circus. Jane Chew, a former journalist, sub-editor and columnist with The Straits Times, recounts her growing-up years in British colonial Singapore with nostalgia and lots of humour. It is a journey worth re-visiting, as it captures a way of life that is now gone, never to return.
