Singapura Images Postcard: I Hear the Bell Go Ding Dong!
by Lee Xin Li
"What if electric trams still exist in Singapore? The artist was inspired to do a piece on it after listening to an oldie named Ding Dong Song sung by Pan Wan Ching (1960s). Somehow the song’s mention of bells reminded me of the electric trams in Hong Kong. In actual fact, trams ceased operation in 1927 in Singapore where they were taken over by motorized buses."
