Labrador Park Series

canon2_mirror_final_tiny.jpg

Some minor parallex error on this.

From http://tinyurl.com/2ramqm

Labrador Park’s high vantage point led the British to identify it as a defence site to protect the entrance to the harbours of Singapore in 1843. Now, it is an oasis of tranquillity and offers a picturesque view of the sea. Nature lovers will be pleasantly surprised to find a rich variety of wildlife, such as the White-crusted Laughing Thrush, the Yellow-vented Bulbul and the regal White-bellied Sea Eagle. Also catch a glimpse of the past as you explore the underground complexes used during World War II for the storage of ammunition and supplies.

All Fullscreen from this post onwards will be DevalVR as it’s smoother compared to Flash or Quicktime. You should see all pano in FULLSCREEN, if you are not, you have not install DevalVR plugin. Click below to install.

The Last Kampung in Singapore

k1_mirror_final_tiny.jpg

Quicktime | DevalVR 

Kampung Lorong Buangkok. Thank you to the very kind people for the chat and their time. Most importantly for allowing me to walk and wader around the kampung taking all these panos. No thanks to the dogs barking and chasing me hahaa but still, it was a great experience, away from the hussle and bustle of the city. This is the closest we have to a real kampung on mainland Singapore.

Here’s a map on where this place is but please please please, when there, respect the resident’s privacy, don’t litter, respect the plants and animals there. Ask for permission if you think you’re intruding into places.
