About This Book

From the white sands of its shoreline to the Alexandra Barracks of the Singapore Mutiny, from tiger traps and plantations to kampong and wealthy seaside bungalows, the rocky ridge running parallel to Singapore's western seashore is one of the island city-state's most memorable landscapes. Kent Ridge is also special for another reason-it's home to the National University of Singapore. This book will help anyone beguiled by the Ridge to look beyond the academic institutions of today to see the area's geological past. It points out the wealth of flora and fauna that still can be found here: from indigenous plants such as the tembusu, tiup tiup, and senduduk to monitor lizards, flying dragons, and oriental green snakes. The book moves through the changing human geography of the region and tells the inside stories behind the NUS's original campus master plan.
