    is this kampong place big? i never heard of any kampong in the Buangkok area.

    when you mentioned kampong... it should look like a kampong right? where there are chickens running around, houses on stilts, greeneries everywhere, etc...

    Totally agree.
    Must take time and explore slowly.

    Somehow, I was told that there are also Sampang area along the river, need to check it out.

    Already check, it is not found in the map or street directory.
    So it is the Area 51 of Singapore
    It is not along the main road.
    Passing by the area, you won't even know that the Kampong actually exists.

    AFAIK, there are 2 route that link to the kampong but from outside, one by vehicle track and the other by foot, also, it is well cover by plantation area.

    The Kampong is like the lost Atlantis in the Altantic Ocean.
    Actually, I been there more 10 year ago before Buangkok and Sengkang were develop into modern town today.
    I like to explore the unknown and by chance, I found that kampong in 1994~1995.
    I wasn't much into photography at that time and forgot about it later as lifes when on.
    But few years back in 2003~2004, there are news in TV and papers that the kampong was hit by flood and URA came in to assist the ppl there.
    Here, it struck my mind, to make sure I and as much CSers should have the oppournity to go to see and take photo for memorable purpose.

    Pulau Ubin outing would be nice in divison level.
    I remember joining the PLUG (Panasonic User Group)'s 2nd invasion of Pulau Ubin earlier this year.
    There are about 20~30 of them and the outing was fun and successful.
    It all goes to the well co-ordination of the Panasonic logistic and the members' spirit.
