Bras Basah Complex - My Childhood Playground

Few days ago, I was filled with excitement when I read an email from David Gan of RazorTV.


He was referring to my blog post Loving My Spot (in Singapore) - Bras Basah Complex that I wrote to participate a blogtrain initiated by The Playful Parents.

I was not sure whether to go for the interview or not as I was not exactly a "public" person.  I have to make a fast decision as the interview was later that same day!  In the end I decided to go ahead because Bras Basah Complex holds a special place for me and the family.  

So, here is the video interview.




Regina snapped this and send it to me as soon as she saw it in the Straits Times.

Ok I've inserted a photo of the newspaper article for memory sake =)

This is how the new Bras Basah Complex will look like after its facelift.   Do you like it?  It looks refreshing and funky.  I'll most likely have a date with my Canon EOS at this special place again after the makeover.

Thank you David & Sue Ann (the sweet Journalist who was interviewing me) for this wonderful  memorable video interview.

  1. For some reason, I prefer old things to stay... Places are like food, seize the sentiment, lock the memories.

    Well, it is just me;).

  2. You look so comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera! I think this is such a meaningful project to be involved in, and a nostalgic memoir down memory lane for you. I used to frequent BBS when I was young and I remember the Liang WenFu concert there! :)

  3. Great job with the interview Jen. So sad to see the the original bras basah go :( it also holds special memories for me and my family. With every building refurbished, memories are lost. But oh well, change is the only constant isn't it.
