    Default dilapidated houses for location?

    other than matilda house, anyone has any idea of these worn down houses for location shoots?
    have been racking my brains for a suitable scenery for portraiture in sgp.

    you may want to go to the old seletar camp at piccadilly road. it is now acessible to public...many bungalows of the british era...and you may chance upon a broken down airplane...

    if you are driving, just go by Jalan Kayu all the way to the end, pass the TPE bridge and you will find Piccadilly Road/West Camp Road...alternatively, you can take services 103 from Serangoon or 858, 39, 86, 168 and alight outside the former guard house
