    I like the feel. Where is this place? Is it the house at sentosa?
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    Yap, thats the place that I will go for the model shoot.

    Guys, fast hand fast leg, if you wanna use that place to shoot,
    cos I have spoken to the authority and they say that they are closing up that place soon, Cos a guy name Francis Tan had bought over that place.... (hmmm....Same name as me....)

    hahahaha... in my dreams....

    But frankly, not many such buildings left in Singapore....
    This building is along ironside road. There is 2 smaller ones along the same road.

    Cheers,

    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    why would you want to be here? alot of such buildings have been developed and renovated to a very old but fake look for some cafes or some tourist attractions and lacked the original 'taste' after that....

    Btw guys I realised this house near Parkway Parade, near to the roundabout there....very old house...anybody knew of it?

    I think its Block 49 that was burnt before.... think was to kill the bats...
    Ha.... but I think the bats are back again.... lots of them....
    The smell of bats droppings were not as bad as the commandos mosqitos....
    You can't even stand still for 2 secs.

    But I really hope that it can be preserve in this state, at least it give us new meaning in doing outdoor photography.

    Whether its huanted or not, I do not know, and I do not have the intention to find out. But When I first saw that building from far, I was overjoyed... everytime I went back there, its like "DeJavu"....

    I'm still in search of more of this kind of buildings around singapore.
    If anyone have any sources about place with possible buildings good for invasion, you can contact me, we can go together to "room" the place...

    Oh, one place I really want to go in and take a look is Ford Factory.

    Cheers,
    Francis Tan

    Bikini Babes? In California?? Ha ha, that's only in the movies. (And no, we are all not tan blond buff people with convertables.) Singapore.... I just heard of it from the Pirates of the Caribbean Movie: "Clearly you haven't been to Singapore..." I (sadly but seriously) didn't even know people speak English there! I don't even know where Singapore is!!!! Oh, Californians are really culturally deprived. Did I mention that? So yes, let's do the switcheroo... you come live in San Diego with all the kooks, and I'll go there (and take really cool pictures of dilapidated buildings).

    You will most likely find yourself in just another overly urbanised city, though without much traces of the past. This city is simply reinventing and renovating itself constantly, you can't really find builidings that are abandoned for good here much, apart from the historic sites, which by the way, are mostly restored.

    Anyway, English's the official language here.

    Yup. In brown colour right?
    It's a conserved villa, to be integrated into The Seaview condo project.



    Far from abandoned!
    The entire area is now a huge construction site.
