Somewhere on Balestier Road: House of Tau Sar Piah
“Te audire no possum. Musa sapientum fixa est in aure.”
“I can’t hear you. I have a banana in my ear.”
â€œYou wonder what I am doing? Well, so do I, in truth. Days seem to dawn, suns to shine, evenings to follow, and then I sleep. What I have done, what I am doing, what I am going to do, puzzle and bewilder me. Have you ever been a leaf and fallen from your tree in autumn and been really puzzled about it? That’s the feeling.â€
– T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia), 1935.
