another lamp-post quiz



this is my third lamp-post quiz. it is not like i like lamp-posts a lot but i just seem to notice their different designs. and i am not one of this kind, hor. my first lamp-post quiz was this, posted on 13 november 2008. this was the other quiz, posted on 17 april 2009.

the lamp-post - the one in the foreground - is not a functional one. i figure it must have been around for more than half a century.

i hope my blogger friend charlee will not be the first one to give the answer. this young man, a happy wanderer like myself, goes around singapore looking for and at heritage sights and he seems to know and recognise more old stuff than many senior citizens.

just one question for this quiz. where can you find this lamp-post?

Hi YG...Bukit Timah? Ha ha. Lee.

lee, i think you are still more at home in malaysia, in places like melaka, seremban (with its breadfruit tree) and kuala lumpur.

chun see, i think this type of lamp-post was installed when kallang airport was in operation. yes, it is found along the road leading to the former people's association headquarters.

icemoon definitely knows the answer. the previous quiz he referred to is the one on singapore emblem.

This lamp-post thing reminds me when I was a little kid wanting to follow my older brother and his girl friend for outing. He would shout at me for being a lamp-post!
