This precious photo came via email this afternoon from Prof Oh.

From his comments made in my previous blog entry Tiong Bahru Primary School, Prof Oh studied at Tiong Bahru Primary School from 1958-1963.

(So this picture must have been taken when he was in Primary 2, at 8 years of age!).

Prof Oh also mentioned he stayed in the Boon Tiong Area till he was around 23 years old and He still visits Tiong Bahru Estate every now and then to eat at the hawker centre and to take in the nostalgic feeling.


And even though I started attending this school about 20 years later, we both remembered the tasty laksa and the wonderful memories we had in this school.

Too bad the school is not longer around!

And I'm missing the laksa and the monkey bar now.

Meanwhile, if you were from Tiong Bahru Primary School and would like to find your long lost classmates, you may be able to locate some of them here : Tiong Bahru Primary School (Facebook)
