The Singapore Straits Times Newspaper (it’s online version, that is) has linked our Tahanan Homepage in an article about the closure of one of its oldest bakeries – the Red House. Our link was called – A Filipino tourist’s impression of Katong Bakery (di naman talaga kami tourist dito eh – HOY, mga OFW kami!!! hehehe).
Niyayabang ko lang, pasensya na. hehehe… if you want to read the full article, go to THE STRAITS TIMES INTERACTIVE: Red House closes its doors for good – MARCH 24, 2003. sana man lang eh nagpaalam sa amin ang mga kulokoy.
Singapore is such a young nation and does not have much of a “sense of history”. Sometimes, it allows the destruction of its old structures and be converted into new buildings and new shops. It does retain a lot of its old structures. But, in this case, I think it has failed. I hope I’m wrong because the Red House is a special place.
