A Tribute to Rochor’s Hidden Secrets

Hey everyone!

This week’s entry is a tribute to a few places that sadly won’t be around after 2017: the Rochor Centre (which we visited last year and featured on our website), and the Sungei Road Thieves’ Market (a place we described in detail on our website too).  It has been many months since we explored the locations, and to imagine that these gems will be gone for good is a sad thought. Therefore, we decided to visit these locations one last time!

Sneaking around Sungei Road Thieves Market

Hey everyone!

This week, we have decided to share another of Singapore’s lesser-known gems and heritage, using one of our favourite mediums; the 35mm film!  Although this week has been dedicated to #HolgaWeek, we do not own any Holga cameras. Hence, our camera of choice for this trip to the middle of Singapore is the White Superheadz Ultra Wide and Slim. This camera is commonly known as the toy wide angle point and shoot film camera (special thanks to Sandra’s sister for letting us use it)!

Sentosa’s Underwater World

Hey everyone!

So we’ve been spending the past three weeks describing (in some detail) our Taiwan trip (you can see the entries here, here and here). This week we return to our adventures in the sunny (note: very sunny) island of Singapore; this week’s place of interest will surely ring a bell (and even tug the heartstrings) of Singaporean everywhere!

The Underwater World at Sentosa was opened in the early 1990s, and was one of Singapore’s popular attractions. The 28-hectare oceanarium housed over 2,500 different marine animals during its lifetime. We both remembered visiting the Underwater World back in our primary school days, and as young, curious adolescents we were enthralled by the numerous sea creatures on display!

Final Snaps at Dakota Crescent

Dakota Crescent is one of Singapore’s oldest public housing. Built in the late 1950s, the iconic architecture have long been taken for granted. But since the announcement to redevelop the antiquated houses, no small amount of visitors have flocked to the quaint and unassuming housing estate, hoping to capture the last vestiges of Singapore’s first public housing.

Rocher Centre: A Last Goodbye

In 2011, the Singapore government announced that Rochor Centre was being demolished to make way for a new expressway. When we were reminded just last year that it would be demolished in 2016 (date unannounced), we knew that we simply had to capture its magnificence before it was gone for good!
