My most enduring memory of KAP was the day my family went to have supper at KAP McDonald’s. (Those were the days when the kids’ play area was still on the second storey, and I was always intrigued by the little train that went round on tracks hung near the ceiling…)
In those weeks, I discovered Singapore, I discovered architecture, but most importantly I discovered the need for ambition. It is a studio and review that I will never forget.

We 'britbrats' all seemed to visit there and many of us have very similar photos.

On 19th October 2010, my kids gave me a surprise present for my birthday… A book written by writer director Amir Muhammad entitled ‘120 Malay Movies'. The book is a romp through the Malay films that was made in Singapore and Malaysia. It was a good and informative book regarding 120 Malay movies that was made during P Ramlee heydays which includes all the movies made by prominent studios of Shaw Brothers' Malay Film Productions, Cathay Keris and Merdeka Studio from 1948 to 1972.
I was so sad to hear that instead of renovating KAP, it’s going to be demolished. Slowly but surely Singapore u are going to lose your charm. You have disappointed us esp those who have grown up visiting these places with our parents. And one day we would love to tell our kids "look, this was my playground" what we have now are just photos and memories.
King Albert Park remains to be my favourite go-to place when I lived in Bukit Timah during my high school years as an expat in Singapore. It was an extremely convenient place to grab McDonald’s after school and soccer games; in addition Cold Storage was bigger and had more various products than other stores.
Pic from 2009. I took this for a laugh, then recently I heard the building is going to be torn down.

It was Halloween, so some friends and I decided to play hide-and-seek at Turf City (now The Grandstand). We thought this would be fun and we weren’t wrong.
