    My grandparents stayed there before they move to Toa Payoh!

    We used to hear horror story of inmates at Woodbridge Hospital using changkor to chop off another inmate'a head.

    i am very enthralled by this i always thought Buang Kok was offshore at Ubin.

    Now, anyone knows how to get there? Hows the respond by the villagers? They like strangers?

    When I was there, 1 or 2 years back, chatted with one of the villagers. He was very keen on sharing his experiences and stories. With a tinge of sadness even then.
