Urban Sketcher Francis Theo loves capturing scenes of Singapore. During his free time, he travels all over the island with sketchbook and pens in hand, drawing what he sees. Mindful that Pulau Ubin remains as one of the last bastions of rural Singapore, he decided to capture the unique charms of the island before it too disappears. This book traces the journey from Changi Jetty, where one boards a traditional bumboat to the island, and captures images of an idyllic kampong life and the many interesting and unusual experiences one can have on Ubin. Pulau Ubin is a small island located northeast of Singapore. It is one of the last rural areas in the country, and has about 130 residents. Ubin has an abundance of natural flora and fauna and is also home to a granite quarry and Chek Jawa, a conservation wetlands area. It is a popular destination with visitors seeking a difference experience from mainland Singapore
