A not too serious look at life in a Singapore undergoing the transition from a long-established British colony to an independent state. This is seen through the eyes of a young family transported from London suburbia to the totally different environment of the Far East. This collection of anecdotes, experiences and memories reflects the differences in lifestyle and customs. The growth of the tourist industry and the modernisation of many parts of Singapore, including offshore islands, have made many of these experiences impossible today and those of a nostalgic nature, and with experience of the past and present Singapore, may regret the diminishment of the 'flavour of the East' as a result of the invasion of the tourist tribes.
