villages, people living in kampong, etc. Though life is back like the olden days, yet the people there
are really well-updated on current affairs happening around our world today.
Pulau Ubin is an island northeast of Singapore with a land area of 1019 hectares. The highest point of the
island is 75m which is the Puaka Hill. The island has a rich resource of granite, which is the
reason why sometimes it is referred to as the 'Stone Mountain'.

fishes, prawns, crabs and many more creatures making the mangroves their home which make up most of the
coastline. Away from the
would be secondary forest made up mainly of rubber plantations and
coconut groves. Abandoned gardens filled with local fruits such as durian and rambutans may be found.
