Short Rides to Reece 'No-Hanging' Flags in Rich & Heartland Areas

As national day draws closer, i went for 2 short rides to look at number of flags around the neighborhood & also to survey changes. Situation is still same as i've written few days ago - this year is new record of 'no-hanging flags'.

25km Ride around rich neighboorhood- Holland Road area
I first rode to end of Rifle Range Range Road before detouring back & headed for Turfcity. Renovation is ongoing for the shops fronting the road. Their shopspace is doubled at expense of pedestrian walkway. No guessing about the new rents... Isolated supermarket there is still a favourite haunt for the wealthy judging from the no. of cars at the carpark.

After surveying Turfcity i rode through the rich neighboorhood of Holland Road area. No. of no-flag hanging among the rich is as 'good' as heartland areas.

22km Ride around heartlands - Bukit Batok & Jurong East areas
First went to the viewing gallery of Hindhede quarry at bukit timah nature reserve for some fresh air. Then headed north till Bukit Batok road which i rode to recee 'no-hang' flags phenomena through Chua Chu Kang & Bukit Batok heartlands. Then turned southeast to reece jurong east heartlands before riding through the light-industrial area of Toh Guan on the way home.

At present rate of decline of S'pore, i won't be surprised if next year we witness another new record of 'no-hang' hangs among citizens(more like economic digits).
