Yes it’s the Halloween week of the year! In addition to attending After Dusk Party this Friday (it’s a must go!), I visited some of the mysterious places around KE in an attempt to embrace the Halloween spirit.
Right in front of the entrance of KE, there seems to be a long stretch of staircase leading down to nowhere.
That’s obviously not the Shepherd’s Path. Well, it’s well lit and not eerie enough for my essay. Humph… But nonetheless, I went down the stairway and I arrived at the…
It’s where young patients recuperate from their illnesses. Unfortunately, that place has no air-conditioner. L How I wish I could invite them to KE’s After Dusk Party just to have a good laugh at the “ghosts”! Just kidding!
Just right outside the Shepherd’s Path gate, there is this weird building where no one seems to live there or work there. I went closer to have a good look at the interior of the building and found nothing but bicycles and a lot of junk which I don’t even know how to classify t hem. I opened one of the doors and here is what it looks inside. I took a picture from the door and didn’t dare to step inside. It was pitch dark that time.
Moving on, you will see the Bioinformatics Centre which is as dilapidated as the rest of the buildings in the same row. A Google search on this place leads you to nothing but the other Bioinformatics Centre at MD7. This place certainly exudes an eerie solitude.
Moving on, we have MORE dilapidated houses. I was brave enough to go round the perimeter of the buildings to explore. Nothing much, but surprisingly, the place is kept pretty neat and tidy, even though the back of the building is used as storage place for construction materials (or waste). Make a guess what these rooms are for?
And I ventured further down the road, I had a great view of the Southern part of Singapore facing the sea. Yes, the exact same view as those residents staying in E8 can see! And just beside it…
KE’s very own Tennis court! That’s what is beyond the forest surrounding the tennis court.
Lastly, I arrived at the building beside the large cylindrical structure at the crossroad. It was all fenced up with no signs so I didn’t bother to look at it. But I took a picture of the interior of the building beside it. And this is what I get.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! See ya at the After Dusk Party!!
