Pasir Panjang Power Station and Quarters
Pasir Panjang Power Station was the second power station built after St James Power Station. Built at a cost of $38m, the power station was officially opened on 3 July 1953 by then-governor of Singapore, Sir John Nicoll. It was recognised as early as 1940s that St. James Power Station was unable to meet the island’s future electricity demand.
Apartments were also built for senior officers, junior officers and labourers who worked at the power station in the early 1950s. The erection of new and taller blocks in the 1960s, allowed the families of the workers to be accommodated more comfortably. These had larger two-room, one-hall units, compared to single bedroom units in the older blocks. Residents of the quarters regarded their neighbourhood fondly as a ‘flatted kampong’. During the gathering of former neighbours at the quarters, they shared about the common financial difficulties the families faced and how the neighbours shared almost everything-television time, food, clothes and shoes included.
Former residents recalled how, as children, they would look out for one another to ensure that nobody got into trouble. “At 4pm, the (sound of the) steam whistle meant the fathers or grandfathers were coming back home. If you were downstairs playing and were supposed to be home, you ran. You would see a whole school of bicycles scattering back to the flats from the field,” - Mr Singh, a manager at D’Kranji Farm Resort.

Omggg I'm still having that concert hangover!! The concert was so amazing!! 实力派就是实力派 ❤️ They are so so good! I wouldn't say that I am a crazy fan of them but after watching the concert I have so much more respect for them. Singing and persevering for 20 years despite of all the ups and downs that they had, they still have the passion and perseverance to continue their music journey. Sorry Jay but I think Power Station's concert is way better. Amazing experience.
Can't believe they sang my #珍惜! Pardon me for my out of tune singing cause Im practically shouting because I was so excited and 激动。🤣🤣 they sang May day's song as well as very classic #忠孝东路走九遍 Thank you for the wonderful concert #动力火车 ❤️
