Memoir Title

Once Upon a Time at Ballater Close

About the memoir

Once Upon a Time at Ballater Close is a personal memoir that captured nostalgic memories about a familiar place in Queenstown that occupies a special spot in my heart. It was here I had lived the first 13 years of my life. For a short while as an infant, I had stayed at a rented HDB terrace at Dawson Road before moving to and growing up at 25A Ballater Close, Block 43, a 7-storey block that was separated from Princess House, the historical giant, by a fence. The block
also faced the legendary 14-storey Forfar House. Poignant memories of how my childhood experiences and relationships with my loved ones and neighbours shaped my values are also
encapsulated.
