    Default walking down memory lane

    It was the on 21/01/11 that i decided to visit this kampong before it was all gone, i wonder if modern time really has no space for some traditional kampong



    boy,i was excited when the first house greated me, it remind me when i used to stay at bukit timah 30 years ago, my mum used to tell me, u no study next time u empty soiled bucket ( some may remember those days )



    i used to had my own garden,where i grow my own fruit,does any1 realise that our packet of roast peanut,can be used to grow again,i chong to their gardens,m.....this plant,i wonder if it will ever last long enough to bear fruit



    look what have i found,bamboo plant,ah la mat last time why i never grow this plant,yes! it does look like a japanese zen garden



    something is not right,was it me / the paper / or last time gar ver ment slow in doing thing ? i thought this kampong started 1953,but the sign said 1954

    like the out of focus blur background,it is sad to know this kampong is slowly fading away from us, my grandchild would not know what a kampong means



    the owner must be very sad to lose it all, though there is nothing i can do, but i really there is some light for her, image staying at a place for almost your entire life span n to lose it all,image the pain



    ever play hide n seek s a child, n u peep to see if the catcher is nearby, if u share the this feeling when u c tis pix GOTCHA i caught,next time please lower your head when u peep



    it is going to be very hard for the younger generation to believe u that singapore once hook up by all this wire



    freedom is a sacre in modern living, how best to prove this point, is by this letter box,u need no key

    Wow...I would love to pay a visit there. My only concern is whether the people who stays there are comfortable with outsiders taking photographs there or not.

    1954 refers to the earlier 4-digit postal code.

    That's a really unique and nice place. Your colored photos are alright. BUT

    Your B&W photos are very noisy, if you do it on purpose it's not really nice. Your watermark is extremely big and distracting. Watermarks are not for show, it's a digital signature of the original creator. It tends to be very small and at a corner to indicate that is photo is copyright and should never be used by others unless permission given.

    Yes, pls go VERY EASY on the watermark. it's too big and distracting. and IMHO, there's a very strong lack of composition in most pictures.
