Forgotten Singapore – Evicted islanders grieve lost life

On May 27, 2015 by jenni marsh in South China Morning Post

Singapore’s modern identity is that of a single diamond-shaped island. But in reality it is comprised of 63 islets, which had been home to indigenous Malay communities for hundreds of years. From the 1960s on, however, residents of the idyllic southern islands were forced out of their fishing villages and into high rises. Many are still grieving for their old way of life.
