Childhood home is an architectural heritage

I just discovered that 188 Tanjong Katong Road (above), my childhood home from birth to age fifteen (in 1970), is part of the Tanjong Katong Conservation Area,  officially declared on Dec 1, 2003. My appreciation is due to the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore for ensuring that a part of my past will be conserved. A very commendable effort, indeed.

It is also my good fortune that the site has not been rebuilt in the intervening thirty-three years.
