15 Selarang Park Road, Changi247 viewsMy thanks to Marion Body for this photo. Marion lived here with her sister Madeliene (Maddy) in 1968. They were there for about a year with her father Malcolm, an officer (Lieutenant or Captain) in REME and mother Marguerite (Peggy). Marion particularly remembers the stories of how hundreds of POWs were billeted in the house that the four of them then occupied.

Chua Boon Hwa, Daughter and Granddaughter.

Here is one of our Amah, Boon Hwa, who looked after my brother and me – and the parents – during our stay in Singapore between 1957 and January 1960, during which time we lived at East Coast Drive, Roseburn Avenue and finally at Lloyd Leas.

Anthony would love to hear from anyone who recognises Boon Hwa and her family

Cameron_Hotel-1-2006.JPG
Cameron Hotel231 viewsA 2006 photo of the Cameron Hotel, thanks to Peter Chan. It was popular with RAF personnel in transit to the UK after their engagement was over. Cameron Hotel is located at Guan Soon Avenue, off Upper Changi Road. Jeffery Abdullah adds, that this hotel is located very near to Simei Housing Estate. If you take the MRT, the station that you need to alight will be SIMEI MRT Stn and then its a walking distance cutting through the footpath next to the new condominiums and private houses.
