Walkabout in Joo Chiat

One of the least best kept secrets in my neck of the woods is the quaint old neighborhood of Joo Chiat. I remember wandering these streets as a kid and not much has changed in terms of the architecture and the laid back feel of the place. Many of the shophouses are still around though most have taken on new roles as boutique hotels, bakeries, eateries, girly bars and commercial offices gradually move in.

The following images are from a recent walkabout through the alleyways and side streets. There's always something new to discover everytime I go out there even though I've lived in the area for over 30 years.

Hmm. Maybe you should drop by my studio for a coffee and a chat. :)

Very nice. Certainly haven't seen Joo Chiat in this light before.

These photos are nice! I would have just walk past these lifeless doors and walls. But your pictures bring life out of them and made me notice. Thumbs-up!
