The Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Singapore have agreed that the Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) station currently in operation at Tanjong Pagar will be relocated to the Woodlands train checkpoint by 1st July next year.
Which means that the old train station is going to be torn down. While this could just turn out like our own National Stadium, which was planned to be torn down like... yesterday, I reckoned in order to play safe, I better take some of the old Tanjong Pagar train station with me before it is too late. Because one thing for sure, our country's way of preserving old buildings is to paint it with bright and colorful CMY-K, or convert it to another legalised gambling den.
