My primary school is Joo Avenue School. It was located at Joo Avenue which is off Rangoon Road. Next to it was Rangoon Road Secondary School. We used to share the school field with our neighbour school. We get to watch the band formation practices and the cricket games at the end of the school field. Many of us took trishaw as a form of transportation to school in those days. One day old uncle rode the trishaw into the drain as he had dozed off!
