Thanks evq! just hoping more will respond.

I have some new information about 'Punggol House', it used to be owned by a local businessman called Lim Teck Lee, very rich of course, i think his company/corporation is still operating. The piece of land the house sits on was owned by him but was taken by the authorities not long ago (few years back) and there wasn't a finalised plan for developing the area, that's why it's still barren.

Stories of the house being haunted probably orignated from the fact that the house is very close to Punggol Marina (further north of location e), the latter being a site of WWII Japanese atrocities ... i.e. the infamous massacre. The other site where thousands are killed during WWII will be the War Memorial at location c.

hey evq, no problem, you are not the only person to warn me about the place ;)

my dad is an 'old time Punggolian', haha, just popped him the question this morning if he knew about an old bungalow west of the mrt station, the information is from him. plus i have been following ura's masterplan of this area, and apparently HDB has stopped/slowed down the building of new apartments in Punggol due to complex reasons.

i think it's normal for responses to be rather 'cold' for new gatherings, especially when nobody really know who others are in the area, but i still hope members in this NE area can come join in, take it as a leisurely thing to meet new people.

thinking maybe can separate into 2 meeting sessions ... say like one group meet earlier to do the sunrise shoot at location a, then we can go for brunch or something to meet with a second group who can't turn up that early, then proceed to other locations for shoot. let's make it informal and relaxed so participants may come in at a more comfortable time, also one or two may need to leave earlier. here's the first draft for the plan

0630 meet at busstop near my place at location X (to be updated on the map) proceed to location A for sunrise shoot and some walkabout in this area.

1000 meet with second group at Compass Point to have brunch (any recommendations for good makan place?)

1100 set off to Punggol End (location b) to do some day shoot of the War Memorial and former SAF training ground (location c) hmmm... pretty hot by then, bring more water, can do some exploration of the area as well.

1600 get a tea break or something

1700 proceed to location d or e to do late afternoon shoot and later continue to do sunset shoot.

will update the list of partipants once i get more response :)

Why don't you plan for the rest breaks at specific loaction and time range, so that those who are not free ealier can join you people at the rest break locations, just look for the equipment. Just a suggestion, as I mentioned b4, I would like to go but I just cannot make it on the 27th. Maybe the next shoot. And also say newbies welcomed. Bring tripod for sunrise/sunset.

so far the updates ...

Punggol Shoot 01, 27th Nov '04

1. eikin
2. evq
3. rainman
4. SnapSnap
5. scud (tentative)

Thanks to all who responded to my PM,

All others in this area do consider joining, hoping the list will grow longer :) and do keep your suggestions coming in, newbies welcomed anytime

For others not living within the NE area, i did not forward a formal invitation as i am still exploring this place myself and may not be able to be a good 'host' if you come for this first outing and my intention is to first organise a meeting for members in this area as a get-to-know each other kind of thing. Depending on the success/failure of this first outing in this area, the second one can involve more people and be more 'focussed', cheers.
