X-Pro1 Diaries: Golden Beach Vista, An Estate As Old As Its Residents (Part 2)
View Part 1 of this post here.
The Residents of Golden Beach Vista all seem to know each other, a modern day Kampung in Singapore. There didn’t seem to be any one looking after them, no foreign domestic helpers or time-strapped children fussing over them. I am guessing that they keep and eye out for one another in this tight knit community. Where one might imagine a great deal of loneliness existing in a place like this, the atmosphere wasn’t one of despair or despondency, but rather one of self sufficiency and self reliance. Perhaps it wasn’t that development and the world ‘outside’ hasn’t come here, but that the residents prefer to keep ‘progress’ out.

A child, possibly visiting his grandparents for the weekend, skates around the playground in the estate.

The residents are mostly retirees and senior folk.

Most of the residents have been living here for a while

Laundry hanging out to dry.

There is definitely a sense of community here, as the residents gather in the common areas to socialise.

Others prefer their own space.
