New malls have sprung up where historical Specialist Shopping centre once stood. And across that was the hangout of the ‘centrepoint kids’ in the mid 80s (no we did not join)… don’t know what we are talking about? Google it!

Built around 1902, Peranakan place or corner was home to some straits born Chinese who ‘gathered’ in this district. Today many folks in our little red dot can be said to have some form of Peranakan heritage due to the mixing of people over the last 100 years. Do you know what being Peranakan means?
