School Time Memories

Lim Leong Seng

The sculpture depicts a scene from the past commonly seen along Amoy Street where school-going children had fun indulging in their favourite pastime – chapteh – after school. Chapteh is a traditional game favoured by many in Asia and Southeast Asia where players kept a weighted shuttlecock in the air using their feet or other parts of the body except for the hands, and could be made simply and cheaply by attaching feathers to a rubber sole.
