New Dining Hideout and Prawn Fishing at Punggol Tebing Lane 5/5 (3)

Secret Dinning and Prawn Fishing Place @ Punggol Tebing Lane This new setup at Tebing Lane is still a hideout and unknown eating place for most of us.   I had driven pass the place a couples of time but did not realize of its existence until I read a report about it recently on the newspaper.   So armed with my trusted pocket camera (Lumix TZ-3), I searched for the place again this week.   Now, after reading this article, you’ll know the secret hideout too!

Singapore Quarry 5/5 (2)

Singapore Quarry – A Hidden Treasure   Singapore Quarry is not a common and popular place of attraction for the locals as well as for tourist.   The stigma of a being a quarry does not really make people excited.   I had the same thinking and have not even thought of visiting it until last month.   After the visit, it had changed my view quite dramatically although I would still not regard it too much as an exciting place.  BUT to me, this place is a hidden treasure.   A treasure that I hope more people would come to know and that…
