I have decided to feature the East as a place close to my heart for this bloghop initiative because I have always felt and will always feel a certain affinity for this place.

When my family migrated here from Indonesia in 1982, we chose to stay in the Siglap area. A few years later, we moved to Joo Chiat Place, where I did most of my growing up before we moved to the Queensway/Holland Road area.


I started my education with English as the first language just down the road from where I stayed - Telok Kurau Girls', which then merged with CHIJ (Opera Estate) when I was in Primary 3. When we moved to a more 'centralised' location, we find ourselves still making trips back to the East - where our hairdresser, Mum's tailor and places where we are used to getting household supplies are located. We have our food favourites, and the roads are as familiar to us as moving around our home.
