The MacDonald House
The MacDonald House was built in 1949 by the architectural firm Palmer and Turner. It is now the only one building left with red- brick exterior in Orchard road. In 1965, two Indonesia saboteurs placed a bomb on the mezzanine floor, three persons was killed and 33 injured.
The impact of the bomb shattered all windows within 300 feets and damages car outside the building. It was due to Indonesia Confrontation, in support of President Sukamo, opposition to the merger of Singapore, Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak. The 2 Indonesia terrorists were convicted to murder and hanged eventually.
The building was built for The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. It was the first large office building of the post-war period and has gazetted as a National Monument on 10 February 2003.
The building is designed in Neo-Georgian style. Built in reinforced concrete and clad in red brickwork with rigid language. The white painted frame casement windows allow it to stand out from the modern cityscape of the Orchard road. The 1st floor was lay by creamy natural marble stones, the size of the tiles and refine details made the building more conspicuous.
Obviously, this buiding is different from fast restaurant Mcdonald, this is The Macdo
Sometimes I’ll helped my friend who is doing courier service where he last minute can’t find anybody to do the delivery task.
So here I am.
Today, I left home at 5.50am in the morning, reached LRT (Light Rail Transit) by 6am. And took a public bus 27 and change to another bus 37 to reach Changi Industrial Park. Finally, I touched the ground of World Courier at 7.15 am, by then dawn was standing by my side.
I picked 2 parcels for delivery; one must be delivered at Chinatown by 9am, the other one by 9.45 at Orchard WHEELOCK PLACE.
Times is precious, I have to speed up to reach the destination before the specific time required by World Courier, so that I have enough time to roll over for the next delivery.
It was 7.30 am, I took a bus back where I came from and transferred to MRT (Mass Rapid Transports). The time traveling took me about 1 hour plus.
Gladly, I reached the 1st destination at 8.45. I got a stamped for acknowledgement and heading the next job.
I took bus no. 145 to reach WHEELOCK PLACE in Orchard road; by 9.25 I managed to deliver all on time.
This is my “Rush Hour”, quite fun and interesting, that is one of the reasons I had many pictures always ready on hand!
