"I bought a copy of Farrer Park today and am so happy with it. It’s a visually beautiful book, a pleasure to read and brought back warm memories of my own childhood (the longkang fishing, the ice ball man, the bakul man, marble games and trishaw rides) that made me smile in spite of myself. Highly recommended for anyone over 45 for a rush of beautiful memories and anyone younger for a loving look back into the charming Singapore of yesterday."
