I have been looking at some of your photos and blogs.
I am a New Zealander who lived in Singapore in 1973 -75. My father was with the NZ Army, and I went to high school in Singapore. I was at Changi, then at Woodlands , lived initially at Serangoon Gardens and then at Seletar.

I am part of a group called the Military Brats of Singapore, made up from the kids who went to the school at the Australian & New Zealand Defence Force schools that operated from 1971 – 1989. We have a website and Facebook page and this year we are having a School Reunion in Auckland. We have great memories and some great photo’s as well.
For all of us who were there, Singapore was the best years of our lives. We loved living there, and many of us have been back many times. We ate at the makan stalls and played rugby on the Padang, lived our days at the swimming pools, and snuck off to Bugis St at night, when it was still worth visiting.

Keep up the great work, and love the stories and photos.
