Tour Singapore

We started our journey from Kembangan MRT Station, taking a train and alighting at Raffles Place. We began our walk from Cecil Street, then continued on towards Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Telok Ayer Street. Along the way, we saw Far East Square and the sheltered or covered alleys filled with restaurants and shoppings. We were mostly impressed with how well the old shop houses are preserved and reconstructed to contain a touch of modern lifestyle, though sometimes I wish I could see these buildings in their past glory again -- just like how some of the pioneering artists saw them 20-30 years ago. Well, these are just 4 sketches made during our little tour to show the path we took.
