Also with me at this table were two others whom I knew only through my blog and via Facebook. They were Wendy Ng and Hrh A Sean (Andrew). Though we had communicated through Facebook, it was the first time that we were all meeting each other face to face.
I was very touched when Wendy, who knew I would be at the function, produced out of her treasured memorabilia, an old newspaper cutting she had brought specially for me. Thank you Wendy!
The 1994 newspaper spreadsheet was an article on Princess Elizabeth Estate just before it was to be demolished. Sadly, the photos in the article showed the estate in its last neglected state.
Here are the pictures I scanned out from the article as well as the original write up in Chinese.
|Princess Elizabeth Estate in 1994.|
Sadly, ageing and waiting for its impending demise.
Most of the residents have moved on and the flats shuttered.
In the rear is Blk 23, Blk 22(left) and Blk 20 (centre).
Front left Blk 17 and right Blk 18.
