Percival road was named after Lieutenant-General Arthur Ernest Percival.
During the Second World War, Percival was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) Malaya; he marched down from this road by surrender himself, as representing British Empire to the Imperial Japanese Amy.
Hence, Singapore occupied by Japanese soldiers for 3 years and 8 months.
Not many people knew there was a sad story hidden behind this road.
There is no road sign bring you to Percival road. You can Google it, it bring you where to go but just an ordinary road behind National Museum of Singapore, Fort Canning Park.
Where cicada is calling, where shadow of the forest lying on your shoulder silently.
