Shopping at the revamped Chinatown Point with my girlfriends last Saturday, we squealed with delight upon discovering this shop selling snippets of our childhood memories.
The neatly stacked tins of biscuits in the shop reminded us of the provision shops back in the 60s and 70s. I was ecstatic to find some of my favourite biscuits that I have been craving for.

Remember these biscuits decorated with colourful icing? As young children, my cousins, brothers and I love snacking on them. We could buy a handful for 10-cents from the only village provision shop.
First we licked off the icing before popping the biscuits into our mouths or dunking them into a cup of hot Milo. Ha!

There were too many yummy snacks to choose from, we bought lots of sweet and sour titbits. :D
Erasers : flags of countries
Besides sweets, there were some interesting toys and stuff of yesteryear for sale. My classmates and I used to play a game with these erasers when we want to exchange for the flags of countries I didn't own.
Classic children's card games : Old Maid, Happy Family, Snap and Donkey
I bought the above children's cards games for my nieces. My nephews received colourful paper balls that they have to blow-up and a Animal Kingdom Chess Set.
What a fun and interesting shop, I will have to bring the children here for a visit soon.
