Singapore is a highly urbanized country but do you know that there is still one last "kampong" (malay word for village) surviving here? This is hard to believe considering that almost the whole of Singapore has been developed. The younger generation may not even have heard of this last village in Singapore!
Kampong Buangkok was built in 1956 and is the last surviving village in Singapore. It is located in Hougang, the north eastern region of Singapore. There were rumours that this village would be torn down soon so I decided to go down and explore it before the chance to see the village is gone forever.
Walking through the village was an eye-opening experience and observe sights that were no longer present in anywhere else in Singapore. The residents still live in kampong houses and there are still overhead cables in the village (almost all of the power cables are laid underground in Singapore).
It felt very peaceful in the village and I guessed that a slower and relaxed lifestyle might be the reason the residents chose to remain in the village and not move out to modern housing estates. For people who have never heard of Kampong Buangkok or yet to visit it, do come down here to take a short escape from your busy city life before the village gets torn down and the area is developed.

On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.

There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
