新加坡派 Singapore Pie 2.0:

(Margaret Drive…hideaway in a small forgotten corner of the city…reading books in a library with a quiet view of leaves and grass…enjoying a late afternoon tea-time break from the books just two steps away at the oldest surviving food centre, munching on You Char Kway, Ham Chim Peng, Butterfly dough fritters, and washing it down with thick kopi and teh…watching the dust motes rise lazily in the waning golden light of the late afternoon sun…)

This old neighbourhood — made up of crumbling concrete blocks of first generation housing flats, the food centre and an old cinema, all earmarked for demolition+rebuilding and mostly abandoned and empty — was my refuge and haven for a period. Like the crumbling concrete structures themselves, I felt grey and hollow, cracked and empty. I was crumbling away inside, jagged pieces of me broken and chipped away. And without sinews of reinforced steel rebar, rusted or not.
