Pandan reservoir 

What do I see in Pandan reservoir?
 I see despair. I see hope.
Unlike most other reservoirs in Singapore, Pandan reservoir isn’t surrounded by trees or forests. It has a gravel track all around, and is surrounded by residential and industrial buildings.

The atmosphere there is somewhat dismal, despondent and depressing.

Yet the reservoir seems to serve as a sort of oasis or soul respite for the migrant workers who work in the industrial areas nearby.

I suppose migration from their home countries to work in a foreign land in austere conditions isn’t exactly pleasant for them.

Yet there is a sense of brotherhood and camaraderie among the strollers.

I see despair and I see hope.
