Congratulations to the Jalan Kayu Trail, for securing an official launch back in November 2007!
An intriguing snippet, demonstrating that the Airbase has always attracted folks who can be content with the simple things in life
Dear Jalan Kayu Trail Team members, I spent a very happy and memorable time at Seletar from 1962 to 1964. Your blog brought back many memories of Jalan Kayu, night markets, watches for S$10 (equivalent now S$3.20), K Wah the tailor where I bought the best pair of trousers I have ever owned. Seletar Bar and the best Nasi Goreng on the Island at the time. Taxi back from the City for S$2.50, our exchange rate was then S$8.40 to £1 sterling! I also remember shopping in the Pagoda House at the far end of the village, is it still there? “Daz” an Indian who worked on West Camp and made our beds and polished our shoes and in hard times lent us money. Above all the great local food in the village. I still come back to Singapore on a regular basis, how it has changed! Thank you for a great blog. Peter Rushen, England
