Jalan Perwira, Kaki Bukit, Singapore
Well, folks, this is the YouTube video on life in Kaki Bukit in the seventies and eighties, posted by Muzaffar703. I wish I could thank him personally or he would by chance stumble upon my blog, as I had stumbled upon his video. Note the 'little hut' that housed the 'bucket-type latrine' of the 'good old days of poor sanitation and plumbing' (Snicker and Sneer).
I would also like to thank T Azra who conveyed his salam through Remgold's blog. I hope there are many silent readers like him who enjoyed reading my postings but are too shy to comment.
I would also like to share another title of the same genre, A Kite in the Evening Sky by Shaik Kadir, as mentioned by T Azra. It is a lower secondary text published by Marshall Cavendish Education. It recounted a childhood in Geylang Serai in the late fifties and sixties. I will try to get my hands on the book and do an off-the-cuff review. Til then, God speed!
