A walk towards Science Park 2 uncovered a soon-to-be-completed condominium project
Entrance of Kent Ridge, the start of Journey
Historical relics meet the sight-seeker
As I travelled to the submit of Kent Ridge, I took a photo facing the sea. You can see the oil refinery estate from far.
This is the route that leads to Kent Ridge Car park.
This is the most critical point to start your journey to Alexandra Arch. Please read the map carefully.

View from Canopy Walk
View from Canopy Walk. Notice the pavement below. That is the point leading to Alexandra Arch.
Exit from Canopy Walk is Bukit Chandu. Site of most ferocious battle with Japanese during World War 2. It is said ot be the last stand of Singapore.
On the left side of Canopy Walk exit is the private housing. Very luxury.
Entrance to the Bukit Chandu war museum
Reflections at Bukit Chandu (RBC) is a World War II interpretative Centre housed in a colonial bungalow. It showcases the Battle of Pasir Panjang on 14 February 1942 where1,400 brave and valiant soldiers from the Malay Regiment fight against 13,000 Japanese soldiers. The regiment was totally eradicated by the Japanese.
A memoir just beside the museum
The museum. did you spot anything funny ? Something staring out the window perhaps ? Few people feel uncomfortable there and detect some presences though it really depend on the state of the person.
There are two large glasses housing the name of those who perished during the battle.
This is placed on a cement block that says there used to be a bungalow that stored ammunition. This is also the place where the lifeless and mutilated bodies of Malay soldiers were kept by the Japanese army. Am I surprised that it will be demolished and convert into carpark ?
This is the spot where the bungalow used to stand and now convert into a Car Park.

The carpark where the bungalow used to stand.
A playground in Vista Park ? Vista ? So where's Bill Gates ?

To my favourite Hai Kee Char Kuay Teow in Commonwealth hawker centre. http://www.haikee.com.sg/
The award winning Kuay Teow Man creating his masterpiece for his customer.
Delicious Char Kuay Teow for me after 30 mins wait. The longer you wait, the more you will appreciate the Kuay Teow ! Used to sell for $2.50 and $3. Now only sell $3 because uncle says Tak Boleh Tahan due to rising inflation.
Close up look !
Not one but two plates of Char Kuay Teow. Don't waste your time queuing up for one plate la... Two are perfect.
Together with Ice-Kachang. Very large portion for $1. The ice is very fine.
One plate gone, left another. My stomach still complain for more !
Close up look. Is your saliva dropping now ?
Don't drip your saliva on my photo !
Coming to the end. Two plates gone. My stomach now Tak Boleh Tahan and cannot eat any more Kuay Teow.
That's my happy meal for the day ! Now let's go walk walk
The Queenstown estate.
Press a button for alarm ? Notice the pretty girl in the picture, the thief must have been very fortunate.
Deafening noise again ! Million-dollars project underway. Okay... Here's conclude the end of the day. Time to head home.
