Lest We Forget

21Dec08

As we walked towards the bus stop near Kallang MRT, my friend stopped in his tracks, “Are you sure we are headed the right way? Where is the McDonalds?” he said.

There it was, on the empty grass patch, a block of HDB flats once stood and there was a McDonalds at the corner of the ground floor.

Upon hearing that, another friend replied surprised, “If you didn’t mention it, I would have forgetten that there was something there!”

This is Singapore for you, some of us lost in our own city because the spatial references never stay long enough, others do not remember anything at all because what use is memory in a city that changes so quickly?
