Been rather busy with work and other things (though collecting various things for future blog posts) and will be busy with work for the coming 2 weeks so depending on how busy my evenings are, I may not get around to posting anything or not much.
In the mean time, here is a picture collage which previews a future post. I have been snapping pictures of the various gorgeous shophouses in Singapore. You always hear from people that there is nothing old or quaint about Singapore. That is utter nonsense. If they have even been here then they obviously didn't venture out of the CBD, and even then there are still lovely old houses around.
I have posted about Emerald Hill before but I went back. And I also did a quick excursion around Jalan Besar and Petain Road near Little India. I previously also wandered around Little India and may include some of those pictures too. I love the old houses. It is true that they end up being torn down to build condos and that is an utter shame. I met someone whose house used to stand where my office building now is. What do you say? I hope Singapore decides to preserve as many of these as possible. Lots of people both locals and tourists would love to see them kept. Tourism isn't all about attracting people to Sentosa or Marina Bay Sands....
More to come but this is as least a start!
