Tiong Bahru, Singapore. This piece of writing introduces readers to a short history of this part of Singapore - more specifically from the Japanese occupation of Singapore in World War Two to communist Singapore. It uses Seng Poh Road as its focal point to demonstrate the changes in this period of history.

This piece of writing is quite unique in that it presents information about this period of time in the least confusing, least boring and reader friendly way. It starts like a narrative and builds readers into reading about the more formal side of the writing whilst reverting to this narrative like writing to conclude. The content of this writing is well researched - containing both primary and secondary sources. The presentation is great, especially with the writing being split into different segments and illustrations to break the writing up.

Most importantly, though this is a relatively small piece, it is rich in detail. While some pieces pansy around points and overexplain their relevance and significance, this piece keeps to the point and includes enough explanation for it to make sense but doesn't waste the readers' time with unnecessary details so that the reader can move onto the next points. This is certainly a piece of writing that should be read by anyone interested in modern history or the history of Singapore. I am certainly glad I had the opportunity to read this and I am confident that, if you are interested in this period of history, this is certainly a piece to read. I look forward to reading more pieces like this.
