our GI research:

Tiong Bahru Estate is one of the oldest housing estates in Singapore. During World War 2 it was used as a air roid shelter and us believed to be the last civilian air roid

shelter in Singapore. Tiong Bahru architecture was built in a horse-shape and in the past was made up of 2 to 5 storeys flats which is a very rare sight in Singapore though as currently there are high-rise buildings.
