The demolition of Rochor Centre will start tomorrow. A few years ago, while doing the Community Quilts project, @saammm, @ra1nforest and I decided to include Rochor Centre as one of our locations as we knew that it was going to be torn down. We even pushed to have our exhibition on the void deck as a tribute to these buildings. The logistics of this shoot was quite complicated. We had to knock on the doors of residents and ask if they were willing to participate in our project. Once we get their approval (say, Resident A), we would call the other person on the opposite block to ask the resident living on the opposite block (Resident B) for permission to get into their kitchen to shoot Resident A. Thankfully, Sam’s then girlfriend (now wife) @quietly, who was a journalist (therefore had thicker skin than me) was with us and helped to get access. I remember us calling each other on the phone to give directions to our subjects. It was quite an operation. There have been many tributes and documentations about Rochor Centre. I’m just glad we got to do this image. Goodbye for real. . #rochorcentre #communityquilts #rochor #singapore #farewell

Wrapping, wrapped, chopped. The process of demolishing HDB apartments right here in Singapore. Here we can see Block 4 completed wrapped while Block 1 is being wrapped up. Block 3 and 4 is gone, left with only the podium levels. Shot on 26 October 2018. #rochorcentre #demolition #demolished #hdb

Goodbye Rochor Centre. Demolition works for the iconic public housing estate started this morning as a thunderstorm rumbled in the background. For full story, click on link in bio or visit http://str.sg/oMZK 📸: LIM YAOHUI #rochorcentre

I used to stay at Tekka Market, and remember coming back from primary school one afternoon to notice the blocks of flats at Rochor Centre were suddenly colourful. (Yes, they used to be white) I’ve always loved the massive courtyard outside the NTUC that people could gather and just chill tf out. Today, Rochor Centre is currently in the midst of demolition. Farewell, big boys. 👋🏼 #singapore #hdb #rochorcentre #vernacular

#8 Block 1 of #rochorcentre was seen demolishing. It's pretty sad to see iconic buildings going down the history for the future development of Singapore. What's left behind will be the photos.

Bientôt les bâtiments colorés qui composent le Rochor Centre ne seront plus qu'un souvenir. La démolition a commencé en juin 2018 mais j'ai eu la chance de les voir en mars ! Pour rester dans le thème, le dernier article sur Singapour est en ligne ! Au programme : mon itinéraire de 3 jours pour découvrir la ville du futur 😁 Le lien est dans ma bio ;) • • • #aroundtheworld #traveltheworld #travelblogger #travelgirl #travelblogger #blogvoyage #frenchblogger #frenchtraveler #frenchgirl #asia #singapore #singapour #rochorcentre

Views from Level 10 of the National Library @nationallibrarysg of Bugis and its surrounds. Went to see the Early Advertising in Singapore exhibition, which is running from 20 July 2018 to 24 February 2019, but that shall be covered in another post. I was more interested in seeing the buildings that are vulnerable to en-bloc or demolition besides the Rochor Centre, like Shaw Tower at Beach Road (the portrait photo), or even these quirky buildings along Middle Road and public housing flats nestled between them. . . . 2018 Bras Basah.Bugis, Singapore . . . . . #nostalgic #nostalgia #nostalgicsingapore #singapore #littlereddot #brasbasah #brasbasah.bugis #bugis #rochorcentre #bugisplus #iluma #shawtower #shawbros #shawbrothers #nationallibrary #library #librariessg #libraries #nlbsg #mnd #ura #visit_singapore #exploresingapore #kilogrammerz

hello friends. i know i’ve practically been mia for a while, so yes i am (kind of) back. have been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting and honestly i haven’t been very okay. but yes i’ve decided to go back to photography, hopefully i haven’t lost touch, and if anyone wanna invite me along for a shoot or perhaps volunteer to be my (very patient) model, please hit me up? 😊 (But sorry in advance if it’s hard to find a time because my schedule has been like crap for the past year 😔) #riaonthewaytorecovery #riadecidestoshootagain #photography #maybebecauseriahasanewdrone #riashoots #bitehertongue #rochorcentre #chasingpassion
