The 70s men and ladies fashion in Singapore with the pop girl-bands. Butterfly collars, open-neck suits, frilly sleeves, and bell-bottoms. They were a smash. And John Travolta wouldn't have been more proud.
With Freda's permission, I have highlighted two of her photographs and the bands she played with. You can find the chat below on her Facebook under 'Freda Wong':
What a picture... happenin' times
John Travolta in the movie, 'Saturday Night Fever', which introduced a new dance craze and a whole wardrobe of outfits that kept the disco lights streaming and the young ones screaming. Freda Hanum was on the scene too. Man!
Wow thanks, Calvin Adelrick Guneratne yeah right! those were the days😊
Calvin Adelrick Guneratne:
Freda Hanum ... really wish I was around performing that time but unfortunately born only in the 70s. Should have been in the late 1940s 😄 because don't want to miss the 50s-60s too.

Calvin Adelrick Guneratne yeah right Calvin those 50s,60s,70s are real happenings.
Hi Freda, Your picture is going on the right column on my blog for some time. Thanks. It will connect to your story. You look fab.
My forever thanks to you and always, Andy... wow so nice of you, 😀 a remembrance of my past history, am so honoured. Thank you again and again, Andy!
Hi Freda, It's true. If you're well known in the past, the pictorial history is there. Your photographs tell all as they come through the years. I started the blog for this reason. As I explained earlier on a posting, Canadian writer Margret Laurence remarked, 'I keep the snapshots not for what they show but for what is hidden in them..." (The Diviners). I share her thought. And here's something else, some pictures create an impact, others don't.
Calvin says it with his exclamation. You deserve all the thanks, not me. I just love band pictures and the people then but I am only a messenger.
