    What have they done to the disused tin mines of yesteryear, for which Ipoh was so famous?

    Some pics of the old and new (also during construction) Supreme Court, seen adjacent to Parliament House:
    Amazing... you're something of a Singapore Mapper
    I wonder how many pictures of Singapore your collection has...
    Must be several thousands!

    By the way, that flying saucer and its marble pedestal (the court complex beneath it) reportedly cost upwards of $250 million

    Also, the paperwork reduction argument is misplaced...
    ...in the recent new NKF vs old NKF case, they had to drag in extra shelves to stack all the paper. I believe the documents disclosed by one defendant alone was over 55,000 pages. Multiply that by 8 parties and you get 440,000 sheets of A4 paper.

    And that's just one defendant's stuff.

    Of course the NKF case was a very big one, very exceptional and I'm not sure whether it was possible to use IT then to communicate and transact exchanges because of the sheer volume of records, some of which could have dated way before they use the hi-tech facilities.

    But suffice to say that as a result of the IT introduction, many more cases were dealt with expeditiously and they have managed to erase much of the backlog. In this sense justice were brought much faster to those who deserve. I read that even law makers from other countries are sufficiently impressed to want to introduce the system to their own countries.

    Some may not like the 'UFO' saucer as our twin Durians (Esplanade) were once similarly despised. But I think in some ways, it is very unique in shape and does give a futuristic sense of modernity.

    if i am not mistaken, most of them became man made lake. where people go fishing. and sometimes it became like a nature conservation area where rare birds come and go. i guess there are people who watch the birds too. plus, if people want to see old buildings in ipoh, people can watch lust caution (the movie by ang lee)
