    the house is under URA's conservation. it is not haunted.

    the lack of frontage (or having no door at the front) is one of the more interesting thing about this house. this house used to stand in a large garden estate with terraces running all the way down to Punggol River (that's probably like 40-50 years back)

    i wouldn't recommend going to the house during period as the most accessible path is blocked by construction works. unless you want to go through some mud and lots of mimosa growth.

    The doors are at the sides, where the porches are.

    which place? there are many spots with large fields. if you have the luxury of time it'll be good to just let yourself get 'lost' for once and wander around, not a difficult place to navigate

    oh dear, i often go around these areas in sandals and berms but haven't got any cut.

    west of kadaloor LRT? stream? i think you meant east of kadaloor. not sure if you saw a dirt track, if you follow that you'll end up somewhere here
