    2. Until recently, I lived in Singapore. I wandered the city-state in my free time either on foot or by bus or the train. I did this mostly alone with no set destination and depended entirely on my smartphone GPS to get my ass home.While I like the sleek and modern Singapore, I found that the colorful shophouses and old neighborhoods had a different charm. I always wondered what stories they had to tell being around for so long. The stories here are exactly that. For instance I always liked the Red [...]

    3. As someone who has lived in Singapore for only a couple of years , it was interesting to read about the time before Singapore became this efficient society with tall buildings and cafes. Of how the people and places have evolved to make way for advancements, of cultural identity in a multiracial society and of feelings of nostalgia for a place that once was.

    4. This book is compilation of nostalgia and memories. It's an easy read overall. But I love the idea of this book that mentioned in the introduction : a sense of place, a sense of self. It's my first time came to Singapore and getting awed by how futuristic, modern, efficient and well organized the city is. This book gave me a new perspective. Singapore before today.

    5. Fictional short stories about life in Singapore since its independence. One might feel nostalgic about the tales and Singapore we once knew before modernity and globalization. I, however, am not one of those as I was only born after its major development. A good read for those who miss home and want to balik kampung.

    6. A mixed bag, but an easy read overall. My favourites were:- Lighthouse (Yu-Mei Balasingamchow)- Grandfather's Aquaria (Gwee Li Sui)- Seven Views of Redhill (Dora Tan)- Floral Mile (Verena Tay)[Review 1 - 05/05/17.]

    7. The evocation of nostalgia, history, and memories intertwining with places and spaces is brought out quite well in all the stories here.
