answer to school building quiz





unlike some blogger who asked 5 questions based on an old photograph (and got 18 direct and indirect responses), i asked only one based on this new photograph of a new building but did not receive a single direct response. yes, there was one response from stanley but it was a misplaced one; it was supposed to be for the posting that came after.

i can conclude that either people are tired of the many quizzes that i have posed or they really don't care for new things; they prefer nostalgic stuff. or they simply don't know the answer.

anyway, since the other blogger has revealed the answers to those tough questions, i am going to answer my own question.

this school building, together with a lot of other unoccupied buildings, is located within the murai urban training facilities at jalan murai. i had wandered into this place as there was no sentry, no 'protected place' sign and the gate was wide open. i had mistaken it for some movie town that they were developing until i saw army trucks and soldiers on the roof of some building one day.

so this "school" is actually a mock-up for the SAF FIBUA training?

Maybe there is free entry for senior citizens, haha.

Blame the lack of participation on the non-neutral sounding name. SAF seldom has angmoh-ish names for their landmarks. Northlight or Northstar Primary will be better.

I simply did not know the answer. Of course I never expected you to give a quiz about something in Jln Murai knowing that it was a Restricted area.

Not true. If you had give a quiz about Khong Siak Street, you would definitely get lots of answers.

Chun See, it should have been "Keong Saik Road" lah - all 3 words in your street name were wrong. If this was a quiz about this notorious redlight district, you would have gotten 0 marks (and gladly too, I believe).

And if this was a quiz about Keong Saik Road, I would have gotten full marks. But too bad it wasn't and I really didn't know the answer for this one. I like trying quizes for which I have at least some chance of getting the right answers. Otherwise it would be like a shot in the dark, wouldn't it? And I don't want to look stupid lor.

this was too tough for me.

See how they waste money. Which school in our immediate neighbours will look so nice !! Could have saved some money without at least the painting and the fencing.

they have tried to make the place look as authentic as possible. there are even modified bus-stops and an overhead bridge. most are one r two-storey shops.
