Highrise gardens.

Neat row of flowering garden.

I was never a kampong kid. My family left the kampong at Kangkar just before I was born, and since then, we lived in Hougang… no I remember a time when our address was Tampines… and there was a bit of wilderness just in front of our block, and I have gone in there and gotten coconuts. The patch of wilderness has long been transformed into a block of condo… so no more coconuts.

Fruit and herb garden. See a basket hanging over the edge?

Many people do have a love for plants and planting. This is evident in our block. We have flower gardens and fruit gardens and herbs garden. Actually its not so bad to live in a block with long conridor space for some planting. Look at that those bright flowering plants, and check out the pamelo in the basket!

Over the edge, hangs a big fruit

I dont know what its really like at a Kampong… but I like how my neighbours keep they plants going. I wish there were more block gardeners… but it takes time to keep it squared away and nowadays, most people dont have time for that.

Chili flower.

Me and Doug, we plant only low maintenance stuff. Like the chili and ginger are not too fussy about being watered daily.

Local chili padi. Green or red, they are absolutely hot!

The fruits of our labor.. Only a small harvest each time.. mind you, they are very hot!

I dont know about the coriander… we are just trying out our 1st batch. Time will tell.
