    Yup!
    I like exploring, especially to those god-knows-where places where few people had seen. Those ulu places...

    There's still a single kampong house left long Jurong Road near the former Track 22.

    I think remember seeing an old kampong off Admiralty Road West near Khalsa Cresent DRC in 2000 or 2001....

    It was night. I can see a small track with little lights in outside the houses. The houses themselves were too dark for me to see. Got sounds of people...

    I can't confirm if that's a kampong, but it's gone now. The track had been sealed.

    I just explored Track 20 & 22.

    Along 22, there are numerous old kampongs. The houses are still there.
    Got several factories.

    I only walked a short distance. Would go back again.

    Anyone wants to visit the historic Trafalgar Hospital?
    It is now the Sunlove Home Buangkok and Woody Lodge.

    Having remained virturally unchanged for almost 70 years, the Sunlove Home Buangkok is now under danger of demolition.

    Also there is the old Surya Home and Silra Home. And a small, old chapel called St Luke's Church.

    All located at Lorong Buang Kok.

    Isn't Trafalgar or Sunlove for those (ex?)leprosy patients ? think the official last living(inhabited) kampung is at Lorong Buangkok. Let me know if you intend to go down.

    A legacy of more than 50 years, 3 landmarks in the area, factories that once literally built Singapore is going to be destroyed in a few weeks time.

    Former Nanyang Brick Works, last address 13 Jalan Lam Sam
    Jurong Brick Works, still functional last year at 60 Jurong Road Track 22
    Another brick works at Track 20 (anyone knows the name)?
