Issue 03 - Jurong, My Love


Issue 03
Author: Dan Koh

Issue 03 features a personal essay, 'Jurong, My Love', by Dan Koh. Using the route of the no. 99 bus as a guide, the personal and the historical are inextricably linked as the essay charts Jurong's development as a neighbourhood intertwined with anecdotes from the writer's own personal history. A love letter to a place commonly reduced to a joke about being "practically Malaysia", the essay makes a case that Jurong, with its quirks and constant redevelopment, is Singapore, and Singapore is Jurong.

The book also features family photographs from the writer as well as charming illustrations by Tay Kaiyee.
