Great story Chiquit, and amazing work, SOLID architects!
Some of us are lucky to have heirloom homes!
I can only dream of my grandmother's place at Kim Pong Road at Tiong Bahru was like.

Thank goodness for Lee Kip Lin, via Mr Lai Chee Kien's wonderful book "Through the Lens of Lee Kip Lin" my family now have an image of Kim Pong road before it's destruction.

Thank you Eliot for your comment. We do have an affinity for the apartments in this area. In fact, we have 2 more projects under construction around the same area. Do keep a look out for them!
