One of Singapore’s oldest public housing estates, Dakota Crescent is also where one of the last animal playgrounds built in the 1980s and 90s is located. The area has already been slated for redevelopment, and residents have till the end of the year to move out.
Queenstown is the oldest public housing estate in Singapore. Here is where you can catch a glimpse of what Singapore housing is like in the old days.
Some days I tire of the cafe food here, and all I really want is to sink my teeth into soft bread buttered and slapped with kaya (coconut jam). On this day, we walked into Chin Mee Chin Confectionery for the kind of breakfast we know best.
I used to take frequent walks with my camera and Jessie when I had more time on my hands, and Kampong Silat was one of the places we visited. Those blocks are among the last SIT (Singapore Improvement Trust) flats built before 1960. In fact, the ones photographed here have been marked for demolition. I’m not sure if they are gone; I took them possibly a year ago.
