Glad you enjoyed the piece, and rest assured you are not alone in your admiration of Wardah. Encik Ibrahim Tahir himself has noted that he’s had customers who willingly take trips by rail from Malaysia into Singapore, just to spend the day at Wardah before catching the evening train home. Do continue to enjoy our other issues, and keep a look out for our next one. :)

Comment on Our 15th Issue – “bookshops” – Celebrating 10 years of s/pores by Henk Eijkman http://s-pores.com/2017/01/10-years-of-spores/#comment-29900 Sun, 05 Feb 2017 00:19:31 +0000 http://s-pores.com/?p=2249#comment-29900 Dear editors, S/PORES is a great find, a Singaporean ‘pearl of wisdom’ … I recognise the challenges of publishing even online, and especially by a (dedicated) team of volunteers. I hope you will continue this intellectually stimulating journal. As a historical sociologist and political scientist I very much enjoy your stimulating reading that presents us with the real world of Singapore instead of the sanitized tourist version. And equally importantly, how can we subscribe? I looked everywhere but no way to do so … as yet.
Until I can subscribe I will in the meantime enjoy what you’ve published so far.
Great work, and necessary work to keep your many histories alive. Keep it up

Comment on “Wardah” by Faris Joraimi by Henk Eijkman http://s-pores.com/2017/01/wardah-by-faris-joraimi/#comment-29898 Sat, 04 Feb 2017 23:56:05 +0000 http://s-pores.com/?p=2153#comment-29898 Selamat pagi, dear Faris

A warm thank you for a wonderfully insightful article about my all-time favourite bookshop. No visit to Singapore (which is not as frequent as I’d like) is complete without a visit to this wonderful ‘home of inspiring books’ (I think the term ‘bookshop’ doesn’t really do it justice). In fact I often quip to my friends that its often tempting for me to fly to Singapore for the weekend just to visit “Wardah”. As a sociologist and political scientist (and an admirer of Sufism) I am also in full agreement about the role of books in fueling thoughtful and informed dialogue. This is needed now more than ever when we need bridges, not walls. Ibrahim’s ‘home of inspiring books’ is, if nothing else, also a nice attempt at low-key bridge building, an admirable venture.
Terimah Kasih for a wonderfully informative article, and for S/Pores.
Keep up your good work

Why were they not charged in court? Detention without trial in court is a criminal offence and should be heard by the international criminal court! Have you anything to hide mrs. Ong?

Comment on Whose invisible city? Articulating Singapore’s pasts in Invisible City by Vinz http://s-pores.com/2008/01/invisible/#comment-11536 Wed, 23 Dec 2015 07:20:28 +0000 http://s-pores.com/?p=93#comment-11536 Hi Chun See,There were kampong hosues along Old Upper Thomson Road, not far from Sembawang Hills Estate. The Malay guy who sold satays on his bicycle in our estate lived in one of the hosues here. He carted two metal containers across the back seat of his bicycle, one for the hot charcoals to bbq the satays and the other for his uncooked satays. If you travel from the Seraya Crescent end of Old Upper Thomson Road, the house that he lived in is on the left hand side of the road, about a kilometer from here. I am not sure if there were other Malay families living on this side. The kampong hosues on the right hand side of Old Upper Thomson Road were mainly inhabited by Chinese families. I do not think there were any hosues near the reservoir. The kampong hosues that I saw along the left hand side of this road were situated quite a distance from the waters of Peirce reservoir. I have hiked along the entire banks of Peirce in the late 60s and have not seen a single house nearby. So photo no. 1 is unlikely to be near Pierce Reservoir. But photo no. 5 could possibly be at or near Sembawang Hills Estate. The road in the background could be Old Upper Thomson Road. Edward
