 This photo was taken during a Xinyao performance at the Bras Basah Complex two year ago.  The performance was part of an event for a Xinyao documentary “The Song We Sang” which has been released this year.  Bras Basah Complex is the location where Xinyao performance was held frequently in the 80’s.  The mainly Chinese songs were written and sang by the students then.  Most of us who grew up in that era still love to attend Xinyao concerts as it brings back great memories of our time.  I am glad to see the Xinyao artists are still very active and some schools are holding Xinyao singing competition in an effort to preserve the heritage.

 A peddler and potential customer engaging in negotiation at Sungei Road’s Thieves Market. Soon to be a thing of the past, this historical place has since the 1930s, gathered both locals and foreigners alike. Through the years, peddlers have been trading many items, from fruits to electronics to even opium. If you search hard enough, you may find some hidden treasures, things that are old, but surely gold in terms of heritage. Sadly, Singapore’s original flea market is about to be taken away, paving way for an MRT station. Yet another one of our nation’s landmarks replaced by urbanisation.

Caption: “The Chequered Art ” – Rochor Centre is one of the most iconic heritage place that I have visited here in Singapore. The striking colours of its HDB flats and the heritage inside the centre is what drives tourist and photographers to really capture a photographic moment in it. However, beneath the mostly photographed colourful HDB flats of Rochor Centre lies a very interesting chequered floor in way of the centre lobby that always captures my attention every time i visit this place. An interesting pattern mostly ignored by people visiting this place.
