    The old National Library can be torn down to make way for a tunnel.

    The New Seven Storey Hotel is also gone.

    We can safely say bye-bye to the Punggol grassland.

    Even you mati and buried have to be dug out and change location to a smaller plot or put in an urn.

    .......There are lots of interesting grassland plants including a beautiful lalang landscape.

    Unlike many other parts of Singapore, the vegetation is chaotic and wild, a landscape that is so open and different from the typical concrete jungle. Moreover, during the short visit (of a couple of hours) i saw quite a few species of birds that i seldom see in other parts of singapore. Surely this site is a precious site in terms of wild life. Where else can we see such an open grassland ecosystem in Singapore? I think there are few other places. .....

    For our project we are planning to "build" minimal resorts, about 20 WIDELY scattered huts around the grassland, arranged in a way to minimize environmental damage. the huts would include 5 wooden, 5 bamboo ones, 5 possibly treehouses, and 5 cottages. ..........


    I think it would be better to build resorts on small islands off the mainland where there are no vehicle access and entry only by boats. When more humans step into the forest, soon the lalang grass will be trampled and birds will be poached. Some birds are migratory, they dun stay in a place for long. Do study other similar models in neighbouring countries like Malaysia, Sarawak or Phillipines and learn how they preserve the eco system.

    Why build scattered huts? For the young generations to make love?
