Back in the day…

Marine Parade

There was a time when people used to think we couldn’t speak English, but we did…
There was a time when grammar seemed too much for us to take, but we did…
Our grammar was better, back in the day, putting sentences together, happily and gleefully!


This is my hawker sign, in Marine Parade.
Written in language, which I’m now afraid.
That in our race, to gold galore,
Our English is not soooo good, not good anymore.
