If you plan to have high tea over there, dont miss going to the Agnes house, you get to learn about her life experience back in the day. It was nice experience. But I wish to learn more about her story during the war.

I wouldn't visit this house other than as part of another tour. It is a house in the tropics, that's it, but for me that was interesting enough just to see the design before the aircon era came in. The house is well exhibited, and...More
