THE CHEMPAKA TREE Selected Stories


This collection of short stories of old Singapore before its rapid transformation into the modern city state marks a welcome nostalgic trip to a quite different world. These stories, set from Sembawang to Orchard Road, present a green and more leisurely city before its advent to a concrete metropolis. Except for a story set in India and two stories set in neighbouring peninsula Malaysia, most of the stories in this collection are based in Singapore.
The title story in this collection, the Chempaka Tree, is a charming love story loosely based on the old Malay legend of the Pontianak.
Tan Jing Quee, from the time of his youthful idealism, was one of the troika who held the reins of the University Socialist Club from 1960 to 1963. He went on to join forces with trade union leaders and took part in the general elections as candidates for the Barisan Sosialis in 1963.
