SUNGEI ROAD SAYS ITS GOODBYES, OXLEY ROAD WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO

Singapore keeps demolishing its history in its inane desire to modernise. Every historical building have shelf life. There is no historical building safe from the bulldozers, unless of course, the historical building is located at Oxley Road.
