Cigarette Break, Ayer Rajah

Clifford worked at the pier before he became a fruitseller. He missed the days when he could chuck his cigarette in the sea.

When you thought you’d danced your last dance, you discover that you’ll dance forever.

Dance with Jesus, Mama. For eternity.

Hallowed Halls, St Andrew’s Road

The  former Supreme Court, now National Gallery Singapore, was opened on 3rd August 1939 by Sir Shenton Thomas (think Shenton Way), who was then the Governor of the Straits Settlement. He then handed the building over to Chief Justice Sir Percy McElwaine.

The original plan for the Supreme Court included the tearing down of the Cricket Club, the Parliament House (now Arts House) and the Victoria Memorial Hall. But the advent of World War Two thwarted this plan (heng, ah).

Many traversed these hallowed halls – the high and mighty, the poor and lowly, the innocent and guilty. I can only hope that all judgments passed were true and of good intent.
