The other day, I went down to take some photos of this place. It was quite run down and looked deserted. I told the care taker that I wanted to take some photos before the government tears it down. He thought I was an ex-footballer. He told me not so soon, at least another few years.
(16 Dec 2007) - Chuck is right. It is the Jurong Stadium. Here is what it looks like today. Can you see the new mosque in the background? That place used to be an army camp called Taman Jurong Camp - not sure if it's 4 SIR. Two camps actually, separated by Corporation Drive.
I had a friend who used to be a recruit there in the early 70's. He told me that when they did their 5BX early in the morning, the flat dwellers nearby got angry with their shouts and singing (remember how they always made us sing nonsensical army songs when we did our 5BX exercise) and threw pebbles at them.
The area is now very quiet. The big car park in front is used by learner drivers to practice parking; not just passenger cars but lorries as well. I saw a group of men queuing in front of the stadium and thought there was a foot ball match. Actually they were buying lottery tickets (either 4D or Toto).
