  Those of us who grew up in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s have had the privilege of being around in that period of time when some of our landmarks, which are no longer around, adorned the Singapore streets.

  Landmarks, such as the National Theatre, New World Amusement Park, Odeon Cinema, and Jubilee Theatre (now Raffles Hotel annex), may seem common-place buildings to some. But, for those of us who call Singapore home, these landmarks have found a place in our hearts - for we grew up in that era of time when these landmarks were in their heydays.

  We can fondly look back and say to ourselves - Yes! We were there in Odeon Cinema in the days when fans cooled the air in the cinema. We spent the weekends at New World Amusement Park playing Space Invaders and Table Soccer. We took pictures outside the fountain at the National Theatre. Don't you simply wish you could turn the clock around and venture into the past again, to revisit our Singapore icons and also our own past?

  Well, we all know that is wishful thinking. But, here at, we believe we have a role to play in getting older Singaporeans to appreciate the role that these landmarks played in our lives and hearts in that era of time when we were much younger. 

  Therefore, we have started this new section named Thanks For The Memories, in which we put these Singapore icons where they rightfully belong - in a place on the Internet where everyone, whether Singaporeans or others with a vested interest in Singapore, can surf by any time of the day and year and get in touch with their past again, for we believe, these landmarks will jog their memories and bring to the present whatever  nostalgic experiences they had amidst the landmarks many years ago.   

  And for the younger generation - our children and their children - we hope by their reading up on these landmarks, they will better appreciate the Singapore that their parents and grandparents grew up in. For this reason alone, we believe our efforts are not in vain, for we have a vested interest in getting our children to understand us better through understanding the Singapore that we as youngsters then partook in life here. Life is short, they say, so if you have experiences you wish to share and to leave behind in our Internet history books, please go ahead, visit Thanks For The Memories! and leave your ponderings behind in our Message Forums.

Birdsongs & Other Pieces  - The Music & Lyrics of Marc CHAN Yew Jin
With The Reverie String Quartet - Clement LIM (violin), WONG Yeang Chuan (guitar), Tracy CHIA (alto), Nadia TAN (soprano), Dawn WONG (Alto).
"Birdsongs & Other Pieces" is the debut concert of young Singaporean composer and lyricist Marc CHAN Yew Jin. The title piece, a fusion between the classical art song and musical theatre, is a song cycle that celebrates the most enviable aspect of birds - flight. And coincident with that idea is the idea of freedom. Some of the songs are settings of text by various poets, such as Maya Angelou and Alfian Sa'at. The other songs that complete the cycle have original lyrics by Marc. The evening will also see the premiere of instrumental works written in the past year. These include a suite of three pieces for toy piano, a romance for violin and piano, and four nocturnes for guitar.
4 Aug 2001     7.30pm     SPH Auditorium, Young Musicians' Society, 54 Waterloo Street (beside Singapore Art Museum)
Tickets at S$11 each (concession for students at S$10) available at all TicketCharge outlets. Call (65) 296 2929 or click HERE! For more information about the concert, please e-mail Marc at
