A picture tells a 1,000,000…. words?
I like this picture of Sengkang New Town taken from Hougang side. It is a combo picture of four photographs. You can read so much about Singapore from looking at this pic.
The big picture here is the sky representing the power to be. It is domineering and ubiquituous. But not such a bad idea, since it is blue and sunshine all year round? For those who want four seasons, too bad! – you only option is to “migrate” to another point of view.
Notice the flat line of the top of the HDB public housing apartment in the horizon? So homogeneous and yes, boring! As 80% of us in this little island live in a HDB apartment, housing option is never exciting here, unless you consider high-rise pigeon hole living, heavenly! With so much pigeon holes in the sky, no wonder this place attract legions of foreign
talents pigeons from all over the world!
There is an MRT (mass rapid train) line running in front of the HDB blocks, if you look hard enough. Sengkang is the only town, beside Toa Payoh, that has an integrated bus station with the MRT line. You wont appreciate this until you have to get down from a bus on a rainy day and catch a connecting train by walking 15 minutes to the next MRT station, with a baby in tow or after having a $400 hairdo from Orchard Road. With integrated bus interchange, you take out the walk and the weather.
Notice the construction cranes on the right hand side? This little dot is like a major construction site. Not a day passed that i dont see some kind of construction activities near my home, my girl fren home, my boy fren home, … You get the pic – no matter which town or whose home you live in here, you will never far away from some kind of construction activities *sigh*.
The mass green in the foreground represent the government relentless drive to promote and brand Singapore as a “Garden City” – a playground for the rich and famous. There is no black or white or any other colour bullshit here, only green matter. Green is big here, mister!!
ok, enough said.
thank you for your time!!
