    Default Recce/Shoot @Matilda House, Punggol, 11st April evening time

    Anyone daring enough to go together for a simple shoot at the old, eerie, abandoned Matilda House located near Punggol MRT station? I am keen to try out a model shoot at this place, but I think must recce first and see if feasible. So it's kind of a recce-cum-shoot outing.

    Some links of shots taken by fellow CSers of Maltida House in the photo galleries section:

    The time would be probably evening time, around 7pm. That the earliest I can reach Punggol fro m my work place, unless I cheong cab down. Would prefer to keep the group to around 4 persons, smaller group easier to move around, minimise waiting time also. Interested parties can put your nick down below:

    Just so you know, the last time I went a new fence had been built around Matilda and we couldn't get in.

    If you do make the trip down, let us know how it goes.
    More bang for your buck!

    Have been there twice recently, and yes, there is a fence. Along with a sign warning everyone off.. Government property and all that jazz.

    So in a sense, you would be infringing the law if you went in, I think. Not sure if you want to do that?

    Just beware of the cops, as you are transpassing state land. if there is a caretaker which i did not see before on my past visits, approch him to gain access. there is alot of bugs too

    The old fence had holes but the new one is very solid.

    Lingering outside to shoot can be a little difficult because the area gets very muddy and the scenery does not change - grass, grass, more grass, and the fenced up house perhaps.
