Conservation efforts



My bedroom window overlooks some classic Singaporean architecture: the old shophouses of the South Bridge Road area, full of clan associations and import-export businesses still conducted by pen and paper by old men in white singlets. It's such a joy to walk by these slices of Singaporean history, and so I was really glad to learn (from soon-to-be-defunct paper Streats) that the area has now been earmarked for conservation.
