When evening turns to dusk, and then the night creeps in.. (A walk with Keng Kiat)

Description

As dusk falls, the forests come alive. The light changes, and Bukit Brown becomes a different place. As the heat of the day is replaced by the cool of dusk, come and take a walk with Keng Kiat, and listen to the stories of people of a different generation, and their struggles.
