    I had just 'discovered', an area near the point Serangoon Road crosses Kallang River.
    There really looks like Malaysia!

    Just wondering, anyone likes taking photos of houses?

    Like big, grand mansions.

    I've had a few close shaves with the owners before...

    Once is at Makepeace.
    I was shooting an old bungalow, and the aunite suddenly came out. Luckily I was using zoom, and just walked away.....

    Another was a grand mansion at Barker Road. Was setting up tripod (was in evening)...
    Took a few shots and then the automatic car gate opened. Went off immediately.

    At Mandai Estate, off Woodlands Road.

    Beside this place called Innovation Place.

    The building in up the hill.

    According to Godle Earth, the other side is an army camp and apparently had been torn down in the middle, but the outside buildings are still there, abandoned.

    Hey, you should really organise an outing. Just felt you should, with your extensive knowledge on these abandoned areas.

    I am, haha, only quite interested in abandoned housing estates. But if you should organise one, let me be your first to join your outings.

    Mintae, just contact me if you wanna know anything!


    Sadly Jurong Road Track 22 / Jalan Chichau / Jalan Lam Sam is now all but gone.
    The entire area, along with Ama Keng Road had been sealed up for military training purposes.

    Following Synapseman's leads, I went in a couple of times. Very very amazing place, very surreal. The area's roads have no lights at all...

    Inside I saw a few old empty kampongs. 3 old huge brickworks with towering chimneys. Neverending roads and tracks to god-knows-where. Some old warehouses and old kampong Taoist shrines.

    The other brickworks I can't get near due to deomlition works. One I can't go any further than the carpark (was spotted by demolition foreman). I could walk freely in the Nanyang Brick Factory and even talked to the demolition foreman there. Nanyang had the shortest of the chimneys, but also very amazing.

    Especially the Jurong Brickworks (where I encountered the first demolition foreman)...
    At one particular angle, the pic appears so surreal, it looks like from another planet, with the 4 huge chimneys, and vast greenery with not a single building in sight.

    I once walked all the way from Jurong Road to Bricklands Road (new road named after the 3 brickworks)... Took 2 hours.

    On some of my trips I encountered other people inside, all middle to old age 'uncles'.

    I went in one last time in October, I saw demolition of the old kampongs and brickworks.

    A big lost of our heritage. The factories which had produced bricks for over 50 years, now gone. The huge chimneys were landmarks in the area.

    It somehow slipped my mind to do a panorama of that place from flats nearby. Would go again ASAP, but I doubt the brickworks would be there anymore.
