The flats here are very old but are very well maintained. Most of the flats are probably over forty years old.
Many people walked along the corridors of the ground flat at the above flat to shelter from the hot sun. Most like me are heading for Dakota MRT Station.
Keat asked me a very good question about the meaning of Dakota. As Kallang Airport Estate used to be the old airport, so Dakota was named after those Dakota Planes that used to land in the airport.
The road in the above photo is Old Airport Road. It used to be the runway for the Kallang Airport.
Many estates across Singapore have a space like the above. It is a multi function space. Some used them as venue for arts competition, wedding, birthday, etc celebration. The one that many wont believe is that it is also used for funeral wakes.
