November Sketchwalk at Beauty World

Credits: Sketch by Aliver Escano

Hambaobao may be gone, but Beauty World Centre is still around - for now. Being one of the old-school strata malls, Beauty World houses an eclectic mix of shops. Many of us may remember the stationery shop and TCM hall from our childhood some 3 decades ago. But probably the most iconic part of Beauty World Plaza is its open air food centre on the 4th floor which boasts panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Opposite the mall is a row of shophouses and a neighbourhood of shops and cafes. There‘s also a temple and an old-school bakery. The 10-mile junction market and food centre are also nearby on the opposite side of the MRT. Next to Beauty World is another old school mall (Bukit Timah Shopping Centre -not Bukit Timah Plaza, which is further away). There’s no lack of things to sketch in the area!
