Curtains are down for Redhill Close Estate as 
demolition of the blocks will be completed
by end of 2022. Occupants had been given new
residences in Bukit Merah in 2011. 





Front view. Note common corridors are on floor 3, 5 and 7
only. The arched facades were not present on the 
original Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) flats built in 1955. 






Back view. Residents in the 1950s would drop a rope with a tethered basket and 
money inside to pay and carry up sweets or food from itinerant 
hawkers, clicking their sticks to announce their arrivals



Galaxy Theatre was part of low red hills and pig farms
opposite the SIT flats (left) in the 1950s. 












HDB took over the functions of SIT (Singapore Improvement Trust)
to build public housing. An HDB 4-storey mixed use development
with residences upstairs and commercial units on the first floor

4105. Singapore eagle sighting in Lentor Plain house

PHOTOGRAPHY TIP - PUT CAMERA ON THE CAR ROOF TOP


Sat 5 Mar 2022. 9AM. I went to my car parked outside the house gate. I prepared to drive away. Suddenly an eagle perched on the roof of opposite 3-storey house over 400 m away, for a minute or two. An unobstructed view in bright sunshine - a photographer's ideal scene.

I quickly took my camera out of the car. I placed my camera on the roof of my car to stabilise and focus on the eagle's ear using the 18 - 200mm lens, "P" Mode. After two minutes, the eagle flew towards the tall tree just opposite the front of our house, hidden in the leaves.      

I got sharp images as I was able to place the camera on the roof of my car. If I hand-held the camera, I would get blurry shots. This eagle is a rare sighting in Lentor Estate and sharp images of flying eagles are rarer if I use hand-held the camera (Canon EOS 90D).
