Glad you find it wonderful!

Thank you for this nostalgic post. I nearly went to the Ubin island last month — I thought Ubin is the LAST Kampong/kampung?
From your pictures, I can see this is a rathe neat version of a Malay kampung that I knew of as a child. I could also smell the kampung through these photos. So real!
Thank you for sharing. Thank you for the soothing music with this post. Lovely!

Yes, I share the same thoughts as you until I chanced into this Surau Kampong while doing my morning walk last week. I thought they are long gone though they are much talk about. Pulau Ubin is still there, lately with wild boar chasing after visitors 🙂

Thank you for photographing what may soon disappear.

no problem, next time if you stop by Singapore , make a visit there . cheers !

Very interesting, Sydney. There are probably both pros and cons to leaving the old behind… It would be good to take the pros into the future of urban living; it can be a little faced paced; that is for sure..!
September 24, 2012 at 5:11 am
I loved this post and the photos. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
September 24, 2012 at 11:52 am

Thanks for this wonderful insight Sydney, as a Singaporean I never knew there were any kampong’s left..
September 24, 2012 at 11:51 am
Next time you may see them in Singapore Museum, just a joke, cheers !
September 24, 2012 at 11:46 am
I agreed Carolyn 🙂

I like the pictures of the houses… they bring back memories from my youth.

i have never ever seen a kampong in singapore until i read your post. thank you for sharing to us a glimpse of singapore life. sadly this is under the threat of rising condos and modernization. is there a move to preserve this last village?
September 25, 2012 at 8:39 am
So far there is no official announcement by the Government yet, but there are adjacent high rise building coming up,so I can foresee the future of this Kampong, and thanks for stopping by, let wish the Kampong can last forever, cheers!
September 25, 2012 at 10:33 pm
I did not know this place existed! It really should be left untouched!
September 26, 2012 at 1:31 am
yes, I wish too, so let’s pray and hope the wish come true, and thanks for stopping by, cheer1
