    Hi, my name is Vickna. My father was Mr Anandarajah and we used to stay in No. 61. We later moved to the engineers bungalow.My dad retired in 1985 but reemployed and we moved out in 1986 to the 7 mile area and after my dad's passing to CCK. I also went for my A levels at Jurong Institute which located in the 900 blks of Jurong West and I was lucky to see the station and bungalow still standing then in the 1989 - 1991, though sadly the terraces houses and the other quarters had sadly been torn down. I was just think about the past with closure of the remaining stretch of Old Jurong Road between 12 mile to Bukit Batok Road and I saw your site mention my dad and mum (both sadly deceased now) and my sisters. Your photos brought back so many memories for me. Thank you so much.

    Good evening to you, Mr Woon!

    Thank you so much for your response! Truly appreciate your sharing of knowledge. Now I have a clearer understanding of the area that I will be living at which is Jurong West Jewel (Upper Jurong Rd) - Once the BTO is up.

    My upbringing and childhood memories of Jurong West will stay close to me. When i was a child, I spent most of my time with my parents at the Majapahit Mosque as my late dad runs the administrative matters of the Mosque and my mother cooks at the canteen of the Mosque. My late dad took photos of the Mosque that was along the old Jalan Majapahit ☺️ Can I share the photos with you via email ?

      Hi, Muhammad,

      Yes, I do remember a small curve road named "Jalan Majapahit" after 13 and half miles stone.

      Hope you enjoy the photos of Jurong Crescent Road near the Mosque :-)

      Best regards,
