Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Tiong Bahru, Singapore

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tiong Bahru is one of the oldest housing area in Singapore. The buildings are mostly not very high — I assume they don’t have elevator.



Not sure why, the neighborhood feels a bit more homey for me. Too bad, I was enjoying the view and feeling too much that I forgot to take photos. Did took some of the surrounding though…

And, if you are interested, a movie about the neighborhood: TIONG BAHRU (approx. 20 minutes, opens in new window)
