When an old and distinguished person speaks to you, listen to him carefully and with respect — but do not believe him. Never put your trust into anything but your own intellect. Your elder, no matter whether he has gray hair or has lost his hair, no matter whether he is a Nobel laureate — may be wrong. The world progresses, year by year, century by century, as the members of the younger generation find out what was wrong among the things that their elders said. So you must always be skeptical — always think for yourself. – Linus Pauling
About the Place: Kallang Road, Singapore
Some information about Kallang road by Wikipedia:
“Kallang is an urban planning area and a subdivision located in the southeastern part of Singapore. It is probably best-known for being the location of the Singapore Indoor Stadium & the old National Stadium, as well as the new Singapore Sports Hub.
Kallang is often known commonly as Kallang Basin. The area is drained by the Kallang, Geylang, Rochor and Whampoa rivers, and the Pelton Canal. The perimeter of the area is made up of MacPherson in the north to Marina East in the south, Downtown Area in the west to Geylang in the east. The Kallang River, the longest river in Singapore , meanders through the area, and is a popular waterway for water sports.
Kallang is home to many light industrial estates, such as pipe makers, garment factories. Many heavy industry factories have been relocated away from the area, in order to promote residential use. Offices are often situated in Kallang for companies unwilling to pay for the high rent in the nearby Central Area, Singapore ‘s central business district west of Kallang.”
