He lived in Princess Estate, an area that was colloquially known as the Blue Windows because of its unique blue glass-louvred windows.Written with nostalgia and a gentle sense of loss, this memoir is a personal tribute to and celebration of Queenstown and a simple but fulfilling way of life that has all but vanished from modern Singapore.
