Today is the last day of Bukit Merah Library. I have a lot of fond memories of this library as I spent my childhood there.  [bigcry]

 

I remember a few forum members used to grow up around Redhill, Henderson and Bukit Merah areas. Want to catch up later there? Angcheek, Mustank and those I left out? Text me if you going.

I used to work at the industrial block behind it. Night shift.
Many times I would stay in the library till it closed, then go to work.
Good memories.

There used tho be a coffee shop outside. The clay pot rice and chicken rice were very good.

Btw... is it moving away or rebuilding?

The library is relocating to Vivocity!

For the claypot, it has relocated to Clementi. The standard is still the same, high as ever.

Glad to know this library also brought about good memories for you. I'm always searching for the Asterix and Tin Tin comics there, and the 水浒传 and 三国 books. As I stay at Redhill Close, the library is just across the main road from my old flat.

There was also a posb there last time, and 2 cinemas. I remember it only cost $3.50 for a movie at ground floor, and $4.50 for the upper floor. It was such a treat to watch movies back then with my parents. Nostalgic and fond memories....

The fights there are not as bad as the ones at Redhill market. There are probably more knives outside the market than inside the fish/meat market haha :)

Won't call this a relocation, to us it was just a excuse to close it down and built a new one in a mall to chase crowds and vistorship.  So many letters were written to save it, still sadly it's gone after 36 years. [bigcry]

 

Yes POSB left, followed by UOB.  I think Regal and Dalit cinemas closed earlier.  The big Mcd under Regal closed and luckily came back after some years.  Still remember Oriental Emporium store under the HDB branch office?   Then the name changed and now its NTUC.

 

Was the claypot in that coffee-shop just beside the library?  I liked the zi cha stall there, nice beef hotplate. Now its a car showroom.

Someone of age. Hahaha

Yes..I hope they don't shift the polyclinic to somewhere else with so many poor elderly like me living in the vicinity.

Another to note is the revamped hawker centre. I missed the fishball noodle. The two stalls side by side (first row) facing the regal cinema.

The evening times crow noise also gone. Those there would know what I meant. 😀

I rememberEd reading somewhere the bus interchange also in the mid of relocating. It sits right next to the rail track which will be redeveloped.
