Shrouded amongst the sleek concretes buildings and smooth cemented roads is a beautiful cluster of old and rustic houses that make up Singapore’s very last kampong.
While most of Singapore’s kampongs have given way to tall HDB flats, chic condominiums and massive shopping malls, Kampong Lorong Buangkok remains untouched by time and this little plot of land is a reminder of Singapore’s golden yesteryears.
One foot in and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a completely different country; low-rise single storey houses, old dirt roads and exposed telephone wires are surrounded by thick, lush greenery. If you’re up for a nostalgic experience, this is the perfect place to head to.
April zipped by way faster than we thought it did and in a blink of an eye, it’s going to be May soon.
If you think that May is a month that has nothing exciting for you to look forward to, well, there is a whole line-up of events and activities that we know will pique your interest. This includes Peroni Sunset Cinema, AIA Glow Festival and the famous Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar.
May is also the month for music lovers with exciting upcoming performances by popular artists such as Mayday Parade, Troye Sivan and Jason Mraz. If you love a good musical, you can also look forward to watching The Phantom of the Opera live at Marina Bay Sands.
Are you excited already?

Shrouded amongst the glitz and glamour of Resorts World Sentosa and clean beaches is a historical gem that has been preserved since the late 19th century.
Tucked away at the westernmost end of Sentosa is Fort Siloso, Singapore’s last remaining coastal fort. Its strategic position allowed soldiers during the war to have clear views of the waters and the surrounding area so that they could shoot down anything that was a threat.
Stepping into Fort Siloso is like taking a leap back in time; a time when life was much harder and peril-filled the streets of Singapore. By delving into Singapore’s rich history, we are reminded of the dark times that our forefathers endured. We also can understand how far Singapore has come since then and most importantly, we can learn to appreciate the safe and clean environment that we enjoy now.

Singapore has no shortage of scenic places to take a stroll through whether for your health or plainly just to get out of the house. There are a plethora of gorgeous spots here to immerse yourself in nature, exercise, chill with your loved ones or just have some alone time.
But Singapore, contrary to what the media portrays, is far more than just Gardens By The Bay. One of the more picturesque ones out of the lot is the iconic Henderson Waves.
