tanjong pagar railway station
singapore's historic train station recently closed much to the sadness of many who travelled often from here to kuala lumpur to penang to bangkok since its operation in 1932. i haven't been on this train or least had no memory of being on one. like many, we tried to get a ticket before the last train ride however they were all snapped up. many wanted to take a last trip down memory lane. the sultan of johor wanted to drive the last train out really badly because of sentimental reasons. and he did. his great grandfather had paved the way for the first train from malaysia into singapore back in 1932. i would have loved to be on that train. it's funny how we take for granted everyday things until it goes away.
