Last Kampung..

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, September 09, 2010
This morning, CT decided to take the family to visit the last surviving kampung (village) in Lorong Buangkok. I have always wanted to visit the place since its rare now in this modern day Singapore.

But before that, we had breakfast at Jalan Kayu.

My kids enjoyed eating the prata! Danielle had 1 and a half!

The Kampung was just few minutes away. Took us a while to finally reach as there wasnt any clear road signs to this secluded area except for this small signboard along a small and narrow road.



It was nice to see how people live so simply. Makes me grateful for what I have and assured me that even if I didnt have lots of money, I would still be able to survive in this country.




During our walk, I asked Caleb if he wanted to stay here and he immediately said no without much thought. The reason he gave was that the place is dirty and muddy.



Oh well..Caleb doesnt like to be dirty as mentioned by his teacher as well. His teacher, Susan commented to me before that Caleb would kick up a big fuss if he dirties his clothes while eating. Quite surprised because I thought kids love to get themselves all dirty and sweaty.

Anyway, during our walk, we managed to see some interesting sights like fruits and flowers




many ants everywhere. There were a few that went to my feet and bit me as well.



And birds in the open that you seldom see except maybe in Jurong Bird Park.



We all had a wonderful time opening our eyes to see another side of Singapore- a quaint little village whose fate is still uncertain.
