Project Nostalgia: The Last Kampong — Part 2.

A rusty, old roadsign dated 1954, that’s even before Singapore gained independence.

Some of the most creative toys are free, like this rudimentary swing hanging from a thick tree branch.

An improvised clothes hanger using the infamous cable ties, what a mockery.

True patriotism means not needing grassroot members to tie national flags along HDB corridors. An eco-friendly bamboo pole does the job just as well.

Kampong Lor Buangkok is located along Yio Chu Kang Rd, opposite Church of St Vincent de Paul. Buses heading there include 70, 103 and 854.

Project Nostalgia is an attempt to capture forgotten bits of yesterday. Mostly old and ugly, but altogether sentimental and charming.

Project Nostalgia: The Last Kampong — Part 1.

Kampong Lor Buangkok is the last kampong remaining on mainland Singapore. I came to know about it three years back while watching Fighting Spiders, and compared to my last visit then, even fewer families are living there now. Yet the slow, rustic charm remains.
