I believe the writer was referring to Batu Tujuh all the way to Batu Sepuluh.
No more kampong there but lots of terrace houses, bungalows & condominiums plus HDB Estate and pockets of State Reserves.
On the right side after the old Fire Station towards Woodlands till Jln Asas is Bukit Timah Forest Reserve.
Batu Tujuh (7th Milestone) refers to the vicinity of Jalan Jurong Kechil/Upper Bukit Timah junction while Batu Sepuluh (10th Milestone) vicinity of Choa Chu Kang Road/Upper Bukit Timah/Woodlands Road junction.
That is how 10 Mile Junction Complex gets it name.
But the kampong did not end there. It stretched all the way to Kranji and Lorong Fatimah at Woodlands.
BTW, i spent my childhood days in Kampong Tempeh, vicinity of Batu Enam (6th Milestone), Jalan Haji Alias off 6th Avenue in the 60s till mid 70s.
I think you will be disappointed, as even our friend anuar ahmad which spent his childhood days around that area, jalan haji alias ( as stated ) is unable to pinpoint the exact location to your request. He only believes ( as stated ) it is somewhere between batu tujuh and batu sepuluh.
Perhaps someone can be more specific to help ?
Yes..9V, if he is taking note and is within his capacity, could drop us a satellite closeup image of the above location.
I've been there when i was a kid. My dad used to stay there, so he knew the area. It's not at the hill area. You have to wonder off from the main road. You will end up somewhere in the forest along the cycling path. There used to be a well. And there's this place where my dad told me it's from the hill. The water is clean and refreshing. It was drinkable. Now the well has been replaced with a blue pail and a hose.
