Rediscovering the Places (we thought) We Knew!

If you ask any Singaporean, the most likely response you will get is "Singapore is too small, too boring. There isn't anywhere to go anymore!" I used to think so too until I decided to look at the small things through my analogue cameras and rediscover some of the things just "hiding" from plain sight.

I was out with my two cameras, Diana F+ and Smena 8M, and while waiting for the take-away to be ready, I took a stroll around the area.

Sembawang is located near the northern tip of sunny island Singapore. It’s one of the new towns with housings with high-rise flats being the most common form of housing here in Singapore.

With all the high-rise buildings towering over us, it’s hard to notice the sky, clouds and the beauty of little things around us.

If you take a stroll from the Sembawang Shopping Centre, it’s not hard to notice these beauties.
