Ladies and Gentlemen, we are pleased to inform you that we are starting up a new series of posts. It has been almost 2 years in the making and it is still not complete. A little like making a very expensive movie. Because this series involves many ‘actors’ with a script that is constantly changing. Afterall the world is dynamic right? So you can expect the posts to also change in shape and form as it continues…
Introducing : Singapore’s MRT stations. Ok so not focusing on the stations, since they’ve been the source of quite some angst and negative news in recent
years months. But much more about the neighbourhoods around them.
Each week or more accurately every 6 days (since we post every alternate day), a photo essay post will be shared on an MRT station and its surroundings. Now our little red dot might not have as many subway lines (we call them MRT lines) as some of the larger metropolises of the world, but we do have five of them at present (with more to come).
Starting from the oldest line (the North-South line), each station will be accorded its own post along with a small amount of commentary. Sorry can’t stop
talking writing. As we said earlier in the post, the script will be dynamic since it is not possible to control the weather, the festivities or who will be around the stations when we captured those snapshots in time.
You can say it was both hard work and pleasure as Mel (and occasionally Suan) explore each of these stations and their environs over the weekends when we were in town. Or sometimes during the week too when a longer lunch hour afforded it. Look forward to be surprised by what you can see from around these stations. Because we were too.
The first post begins next week. Don’t you think “traveling” in your own backyard is something to consider?
