Joo Chiat is one of the most charming areas in Singapore in terms of it’s old architecture. I love strolling here and taking photos. So much colour. So much detail and nostalgia.
I find this red building just stunning against our blue sky.
A sleepy row of restored Peranakan style shophouses. These were built in the 1930’s according to a charming blog called Yesterday.
Loved the simple dangling lamp.
There were bars on the windows then, for security. It’s now an architectural feature.
Some modern features like this flower lamp that I think I saw at Ikea?
It must be nice to live here. It feels so serene.
It was a weekend too, and so quiet. I think everyone was in town (aka Orchard Road)
Our Conservation people do a wonderful job.
Love the muted grey against the white. Just the little details like this number plate.
And just next to this row of shophouses an old kampong house.
You can probably see many of these lovely houses in Malaysia.
On a raised platform. Was that in case of floods? And is there a little basement room at the bottom? I wonder if anyone lives here. With the please after the no parking sign – there must be.
More interesting ceiling lamps.
