    1. I couldn t find the first edition of Balik Kampung prior of this book when I visited Singapore last time But to read the 2A could make your heart feel content Why I said so All the stories are related between people and places Something to Remember, the last title of 11 short stories even could bring up your memory on how to rekindled time and space and the limited of memory However, my favorite one is written by Cyril Wong She could bring her childhood memory when she lived in Bedok A story tha [...]

I ve visited Singapore few times and wondering how the people and places actually are All I know, Singapore is business country, or well designed country, or country for out comers But, somehow I feel there is something missing about Singapore as a place.I recommend to feel it as much as possible when reading this book They the writers gave stories about space where they used to be something that missing and where still exist in the present time All of that are written in fictional short stories [...]


    3. I thought this was a mediocre collection of short stories, or a collection of mediocre short stories while the writing quality was mostly decent good across the board, the stories didn t vary much in tone, subject, setting, or quality Additionally, I thought the stories lacked good editing scenes in the stories didn t feel thoughtfully chosen, and in many of the stories I found myself questioning the point of scenes events that didn t seem to add to the piece.


    4. An anthology of stories through time and places in Singapore, with stories from different decades from the lenses of people of all ages I enjoyed some shorts over some others, but they generally left a sense of bookish emptiness that I liked in well written prose Nostalgic for people who ve seen Singapore through the ages especially with frequent notes on construction and rather eye opening for youngins like myself Would definitely check out the other anthologies in the series
