where can you find this s'pore emblem?

blogger secondshot - whom i have yet to meet - showed more than one singapore emblem in a recent blog posting. he had chanced upon one of the emblems while out gathering materials (pictures) for his posting on the war memorial park. i think i have seen the same emblem when i was a school boy.

another emblem which i am familar with is the one at the gate leading to the former mt emily swimming pool. if i am not wrong, it is still there. this also appears on the same posting.

you can imagine my excitement - yes, senior citizens also can get excited - when i saw the singapore emblem (top two pictures) when i was exploring an old part of singapore. i have walked past this gate several times in the past but i had not noticed the emblem until that day.

senior citizens do not need to fly here and there to keep themselves going; they only need to get up and keep moving around, instead of facing the wall. there are so many places in singapore which you can visit and re-visit to learn about our heritage and uncover 'new' things.

here are the quiz questions (based on the top 2 pictures):

1 where do these gates lead to?

2 what was the original use of the main building (not visible in the picture)?

3 who subsequently occupied the building?

Reminds me of the driveway into Kallang Airport.

As senior citizens, like you, we all get excited too. We can understand, when we are in that situation.
Yes, 'lau lang' need to get up, move around, uncover 'new' things, in order to keep themselves going.

icemoon, was 'geylang area' a clue?

Icemoon said...

I love your blog for all the historial things about Singapore that you write. I doubt these things can be found in typical history books. It's not just senior citizens but also young people who think they need to fly somewhere to see/learn something. But if they get too lazy, they can always read your blog :P

yu-kym, thanks for the compliments. we, bloggers, also need some motivation like this to keep it up and keep on going.
