A series of photographs depicting colonial houses/buildings; life and flora in the beautiful, lush and wide expanse that caught my attention at the old Seletar Camp on the northern area of Singapore.

Old Seletar Camp was formerly a British airbase. Hence many of the roads are named after their namesakes in Britain – Oxford Street; Swallow Street; Knights Bridge; Piccadilly Circus; Lambeth Walk; Park Lane and so on. Up to recently, it was used by the Singapore Armed Forces. Civilians and foreign expats could rent the houses as residences. However, most of these residents had been relocated to other locations and many of these old colonial houses had either been demolished or scheduled for demolish in the near future. Plans are now underway to redevelop this beautiful place into another commercial space (an aerospace hub). And many of the trees and buildings you can find here may be gone by 2009.

Therefore, to keep this forgotten place in my memories, I made a trip down and try to get as much as I can before it’s all gone.
