· When the best Indian rojak was in Waterloo Street (but had to go in a group, SJI boys would pick a fight with any ACS guy!)
· When we would slide down the slope to the football field at ACS Barker Rd (now a multi storey car park I think!)
· When the meeting place for boyfriend/girlfriend was @ Capitol Magnolia snack bar
· When there was a bus company called STC (Singapore Traction Company)
· When flats were called SIT flats (Singapore Improvement Trust)
· When we used to go to Kallang Airport to watch BOAC Dakota planes land and take-off
· When weekend fun was a visit to Great World or New World or Happy World amusement parks
· When we teenagers would save for weeks to go to a 'tea dance' @ Princess Garni(?) or Golden Venus
· When we pontang school to watch the first Grand Prix at Upper Thomson Rd (1960?)

  1. Not only was there the STC (Singapore Traction Companay) but also Tay Koh Yet (buses were painted kind of red), and Green Bus Company (whose cuboidal buses reminded one of loaves of bread).

    NTUC Comfort Taxis did not exist yet, as far as I can remember.
