after reading about the government's re-development plan to the last kampong in singapore, i suddenly ponder about the fate of our shop houses such as this. i wonder if my grandchildren will get to witness them one day in person or just gazing at their images in wikepedia.

Oh why don't they just preserve them nicely and paint them like what we do here? All development and no history is boring..

it's really a pity that we in spore only have memories in old pictures and in mind. many historical landmarks only known to those of my age and older generations don't exist anymore. my kids know nothing about their existence and contributions in the world war II. it's very sad.
