Toa Payoh is one of the oldest town in Singapore. However it has been
transform with amazing freshness and colours to some of the old buildings.
Here is a picture taken recently before the island's National Day which falls
on 9th August, 2007.

wow, toa payoh! i think i still have relatives living there.

i used to live in queenstown 16-storey flat on common wealth drive. i don't know if it's still called block 81. i attended new town primary school. this was over 31 years ago.

if you so happen to be around there one day or night, and time permits, would you take a few shots of the surrounding area? it'd be nice to see the 16th storey and the flat that used to be identified as 101-q as well.

Block 81, 82 and 83 are all up on the slope in Commonwealth Drive. I do not know whether the New Town
Primary School is still there. The flats and the surroundings were upgraded some years ago.
These three blocks of flat are all 16 storey high.

Which of the flat are you referring to "used to be identified as 101-q as well"? Will be glad to post some images of Queentown in another thread. Queenstown and Toa Payoh are the two oldest town in Singapore. Fortunately the government got both of them slowly upgraded.
