Motoring Heritage Weekend

We went to old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station on Sunday for the Motoring Heritage Weekend by Malaysia & Singapore Vintage Car Register (MSVCR).There was a lot more to see and do than at last year’s Motoring Heritage Day.

There was a photography exhibition of Tanjong Pagar Railway Station in the main hall as well as video screenings of a documentary on Malayan Railway and of Singapore GP in the 60s.

The old cars were to the side of one of the platforms and they were all so beautiful and in such good condition. Anya decided that the green 1939 MG-TB was the best while my personal favourite was the ‘smiley’ 1959 Austin Healey Sprite Mk 1.

who has the bigger grin: the car or the girl??

Anya had so much fun playing games at the Uncle Ringo retro game stalls on the platform. She even won a little cake key-chain.

Munch Munch was there to sell old-school snacks so we bought a bag of the little round biscuits with the sweet topping and I had a Hiro chocolate cake for the first time in more than 20 years.

And of course, we spent some time walking on the tracks. Like his sister, Adam loves to pick up random things from the ground so he decided that the rocks on the tracks were worth exploring that day.
