    Default anyone knows how to go Kampong Buangkok? please enlighten me!

    hi guys, do u know where n how to get to Kampong Buangkok? which is near sengkang area? if u know where, do u know how to go from bedok? i was given some directions but quite confusing.. here's the given directions:

    take bus 88(towards sengkang) from Ang Mo Kio ave 3 and alight at the bus stop after the Yio Chu Kang/Ang Mo Kio Ave 5 junction then walk down Yio Chu Kang Road, into Gerald Drive and you'll see Kampong Buangkok.

    so i suppose it's at Gerald Drive? but any idea is there any prominant landmark near it or sth that i can take note of?

    please enlighten me a.s.a.p.

    your help will be much appreciated!!!

    thanks a million!

    Gerald Drive? Simple, pretend to be mad and hit the policewomen with your L lens. They'll take you there right away

    kidding: I thought it is gone already?

    I thought it went together with the development of Sengkang and the MRT line. However I'm probably mistaken, you go and let us know

    on the otherhand if you are looking for the kampung ambience, suggest you seriously consider checking out the more ulu parts of Johore.

    hey finally i went to visit the kampong. its at gerald drive. hafta walk quite a bit though.. the kampong is kinda like quiet.. think it has lost the real taste of the kampong life.. no farm, no fishing places, no livestock, no plantations, no coconut trees... stray dogs, ya there are but not many actually.. saw 2 black stray puppies.. but of cos, harmless.. an ideal place to shoot spooky pictures!
