2 weeks ago, we, along with our 2 4-legged boys, had a lovely stroll around the very quaint Wessex Estate. Last week, it was a trip to another colonial estate at Sembawang. Located near the Sembawang Wharves, this entire estate is home to many black/white colonial buildings.
Please just take a look at how excited Frosty is! There is simply nothing else that he prefers than to put his head out of the car window, enjoy the natural breeze and people/vehicle-watch. It fascinates me to watch him so mesmerized by the captivating sights and sounds of life outside of home.
A quick glance at the road signs and somehow, you can’t help but feel that you’ve been magically transported to another country. Montreal Drive. Canada Road. King’s Avenue. Surely, all these road names do not bear much similarity to the usual road names in Singapore (e.g Jalan something/road named after a successful Chinese businessman)? It doesn’t come as a surprise that all these huge idyllic bungalows were once home to the British naval officers who worked at the nearby British Naval Base. Built during the Colonial era, rental for these charming bungalows start from SGD$10,000/month. Talk about expensive living!
