Fri: at the Malay Heritage Centre but this time round learnt that the location of The Star Opera Co/1910 then is today’s Raffles Hospital. Before Raffles Hospital was Blanco Ct and am not sure what was before Blanco Ct if any?

A short rest in the apt before heading out by foot to East Coast Lagoon Food Village again. Cheers to the younger generation and may they also mature with their experiences and live life fully with joy and wisdom

Sat: Happy Birthdays to a wonderful son-in-law Jeff, AT Hiker friend John and Adriane in HI/USA.

After dinner drinks at Tiong Bahru Bar located on the ground floor at Cape Inn/3 Seng Poh Rd where the LAM family was at one time the landlord of this property many many moons ago. Cousins Lock, Yun, Chai and Mike used to live there.

Appreciations to David for dinner and drinks. Time to say goodbye to the HCC group as they will be heading back to HI tomorrow. Safe journeys to them.

It’s clearly more important to treat one’s fellow man well than to be always praying and fasting and touching one’s head to a prayer mat – Naguib Mahfouz
