The Old Pulau Sakeng before land reclaimation
Above are some of the photos of my parents who visited the island in 1993 before the resettlement of the residents of Pulau Sakeng to the mainland. My mum said that there was no electricity or water on the island. Fresh water suppy had to be obtained from Pulau Bukom. Residents collected rainwater for washing and bathing. Also, few households had generators to power the electricity. Majority of the households used kerosene lamps.
