Mayo Martin writes in Today (article no longer available) about a photo submitted to the My Life: Then & Now competition.
It is a scene that young Singaporeans will not find very familiar because it's in a kampong (village) setting. Also, when was the last time anyone experienced a flood that reached above waist level in Singapore?
If you are interested in photos like these, there is an exhibition of some of the competition entries. Orchard Central (next to Somerset MRT, former site of Specialists Centre) from 10 to 21 August.
