Get a blast of the past! Savour old-time tastes such as the original roadside laksa and check out the hangouts of the good old days like Happy World and Capitol Cinema. Find out how ordinary folk carried on with their daily lives through the difficult days of the Japanese Occupation.
Told in loving detail by the late Chan Kwee Sung, these first-hand accounts of the way we lived carry interesting, little-known nuggets of old Singapore that you'll never find in a history textbook.
From 1998 to 2002, Chan Kwee Seng penned his memories for The Straits Times in a column called ‘Long Life' where most of these writings first appeared.
