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. 

Displacement and migration from their home countries to work in a foreign land in austere conditions isn’t really fun for them. 

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

I see despair and I see hope.
