“The second-hand torn Atlas that I picked up when I was 7 years old. I flipped it every day and wonder what is happening in the world and to the people. I wonder why straight lines can be drawn on the map and then called country.”

UPDATE:

With regrets, we are unable to proceed with the planned trip to Hainan Viilage this Sunday as NParks has informed us that Hainan Village is out of bounds to the public until the development of Thomson Nature Park has been completed.

As such, we are changing the venue to Fort Serapong in Sentosa. If you are keen to explore this place, pls meet us 9.30am outside HarbourFront MRT Exit A. For a glimpse of the place, you could refer the images through this link www.threeplaygrounds.com/adventure/let-s-explore-the-unknowns-of-sentosa-fort-serapong/135 (note: only refer images) 

Thank you.

Lets us visit the defunct Hainan Village.  The village was situated at Jalan Belang, off Old Upper Thomson Road.  The name Belang means stripes in Malay, which refers to the wild tigers that once roamed on this island. There were reports of a man killed by a tiger at Thomson Road in 1890, while the last wild tiger went extinct in Singapore when it was shot at Choa Chu Kang Village in 1930.  You can read more about this village here
