26) Where is this place ?

Posted on Updated on

Labrador Park Pt 3

Out of many, this is one of the “Black and White” houses on our little red dot.  The name “Black and White” depicted the black painted timber windows & doors and the white color painted walls.  Currently, there are about 600 colonial houses scattered around our main island.  In the past, it was meant for public servants’ lodgings but these days, these houses are on lease for residential, commercial or F&B usage.
The picture revealed House No 30, Bukit Chermin, which is one of the grandest and largest of the four existing bungalows along Bukit Chermin.  Just like the rest, the house is preserved by the URA, Conservation Unit.

However, the old Keppel Shipyard is gone at this time, it was relocated to another part of the island.  Now the mangrove is left behind listening up to the tide gushing up and telling the old story of reminiscence.

Strolling along the Coastal Walk in noon time, is hard to find a single soul.
A lonely bird ignoring a lonely stranger or a lonely stranger staring back at a ignoring bird.
I prefer a leafy sky.

    When I visit Singapore next time, I’ll look out for these places you’ve introduced on your blog. You’ve introduced some very interesting spots of Singapore, which not many people know about. I really enjoy reading them. Thank you.

    I wrote about the Old Market in Singapore, which features the Victorian design. You can see my blog post here: http://janetsnotebook.com/2012/08/02/postcard-from-singapore-satay/
