A civil engineer replied: "Land reclamation should not be an issue if it has been technically done up properly, like providing surcharge for specific period of time.
"Often, the contractor or project owner just ignore and complete it in a very short period of time. The people become the victims eventually.
"Sinking could be due to poor foundation design, poor ground condition or disturbance caused by adjacent activities. Or even poor drainage system."

This is why I don't really like land reclamation. The land is prone to sinking and this is what happens when the land starts to sink.
Can you convince me otherwise? Civil engineer, soil expert, anyone?
