Exploring Jalan Kukoh!

Hey everyone!

Earlier in May 2019, an interesting online article appeared on the Internet, wherein the author recounted her life, living in a little-known public housing estate called Jalan Kukoh, in the center of Singapore.

Although it may seem a little overwhelming to possess so many cameras for a single trip, the key is to use the right camera for the right occasion!
