Traditional shops

This link made us think. Not just because a publication from Hong Kong have gotten into the action of seeking out what the heartlands of our little red dot offers. But because it is something we take for granted. Living amidst the sights, sounds and smells of the heartland shops, one can easily get lulled into a sense of normalcy.

A sense of entitlement. Afterall we are heartlanders living in HDB flats no? So today our post is about the little traditional shops that we found all over our little red dot. And a mini photo essay at it. Noticed the big red one huh? That’s a showroom in somewhat of the heartlands… wow…

Did you enjoy seeing these sides of our little red dot? If so, unfortunately this wraps up 2017 as the last post. Enjoy the last two days of the year.

2018 awaits us all!

  1. This is precisely the sort of thing I want to be able to do – highlight the lesser-seen aspects of the island I call home, beyond the glitz and glamour of commercialism. And regrettably it’s an effort I’ve been flagging in. This has been a good dose of inspiration.

    1. Well look out for it. Our series will more like photo essays – little words mainly as background info, and mostly pictures though limited to 5-8, because there are just too many! Remember we asked how many travel photos you’ve taken? Even when “traveling” in one’s own home country one can take a lot!


    1. Happy new year!! We’ve been so busy sorting out the photos from Jordan and Israel and writing down all we can remember… heheh… before we become absorbed into another journey. But yes our little red dot may be little, but it packs a powerful punch. Look out for the photo series!
