These are the bumboats docked near the Changi Ferry Terminal. They ferry passengers to Pulau Ubin. You can see a video of the ferries at the end of today's post.
The old iconic bridge that links Changi Village to the sandy stretch of Changi Beach.
While walking along the boardwalk, I took a shot of this old bungalow which is part of the Civil Service Club today. The bungalow was built by Manasseh Meyer, a Jew who also built the Chesed-El Synagogue. When the British established a military base in Changi, the bungalow was bought over to be used as a school. After WWII, it became the Royal Air Force Transit Hotel for RAF officers.
Changi Village is a sleepy hollow. You see two rows of low-rise residential blocks with commercial outlets on the ground floor. Beyond the low-rise block you see is the food centre which has an assortment of food stalls to satisfy the palate of locals. You'll notice the International Nasi Lemak stall which has perpetual queues.
The stretch that I've taken this picture from is now lined with eateries and restaurants, from chicken rice to Thai to Spanish to Indian to seafood to dim sum..My favourite in the row is Jacob's cafe which sells Western cuisine in a homely setting.
The bumboats to-ing and fro-ing Pulau Ubin, the last bastion of rural life in Singapore.
That's my World
