The Field

There is this field opposite my secondary school. I used to lay on the grass there once before reporting for parade for Boys’ Brigade. Right now, the land has been dug up and an extravagant condominium has been built over it. Thinking back, it took 6-7 years for that condominium to finish. And I have been staying here in Ang Mo Kio, for about 10 years now.

Heh, I remember the cold quiet mornings where I walk across Bishan Park to school. I had a cassette walkman! And would either be listening to Marilyn Manson, The Offspring or Green Day. Bishan Park Secondary has changed a lot now. To the extent that it does not feel like I’ve studied there before. I believe the teachers that once taught me are no longer teaching there. Hope I can bump into them anywhere in future.
