Let’s begin with the pleasant ones. As I walked on the railway track, I was greeted by these friendly fellas from a nearby construction site …. I think they were kept by the foreign workers living there. At first they were barking as they ran up to me. But I sensed that they were not aggressive and did not panic even as they surrounded me.
As you probably sense from my photo on the top of this blog as well as others here; I like dogs. But due to objection from my wife, and the amount of work required to take care of them in today’s urban environment, I have not kept any dogs since I moved out of my kampong in more than 30 years. For example, in the kampong, we could just let them run around and ‘do their business’ anywhere they want, we cannot do that nowadays. Because of the heavy traffic, we also cannot let them roam freely; and have to spend time to walk them regularly.
Here’s another photo of me with my nieces’ dogs taken in Ipoh 2 years ago.
And now for the unpleasant photos.
These were taken just next to the railway track near to the bus stop and pedestrian bridge.
This last one was taken just next to the Tang Village’s “Great Wall of China”, along the main road. No prizes for guessing who were the culprits. Maybe we should not be too quick to judge the Serangoon Gardens residents for objecting to the location of a foreign workers’ dormitory in their estate after all.
