    Hi there!

    I'm interested to go there for some B&W shootings. Wanna check with you if it is possible to do so. Will you be organising another weekend shooting at the old house this coming Sat? Based on yr experience, what time is the best time to take pictures at the house?

    Kindly let me know asap. Thanks.

    I suggest go after 6pm, using Holland Road entrace. Along Holland, you'll see a creepy container shack and paths leading in. This was you can avoid the gate.

    There's a pth leading straight in. That's the path.

    Let me summarize:

    Approx. half of the estate had been cleared of trees, and levelled up with soil. Last time I saw, they're planting grass on the slopes. The clearing works are expanding.
    The small bungalow, a small shack beside it had been torn down.
    Guardhouse repainted. Plants removed.
    The overgrown structure from Holland Road entrance is still there.
    Container shack beside Holland entrance is still there.
    Istana Tyersall untouched.

    According to the foreman they're repairing the estate, filling up. Levelling. Prevent drug addicts, illegal immigrants, vandals from going in.

    According to the guard, they're repairing the estate, filling up. Levelling.

    to sum up, it was acquired by the Govt and the plaintiffs are owed the compensation?
