One of our favourite family outings is to dinner at Liang Court (usually to Saizeria) and then to the Bargain Alley of Kinokuniya. Sadly we received news that this branch of the store will be shutting its doors on 21 April 2019 after 36 years in operation.
In the past decade, we have mourned the closing of bookstore after bookstore; there aren’t many left in Singapore. For a family who still buys print books (especially slightly damaged discounted ones), we are bereft. Borrowing the words of the Eagles:
And why must we grow up so fast …
Gone are the ribbons and bows
Things to remember, places to go”
