X-Pro1 Diaries: Friday Night in a Quieter Part of Town
Whilst the city centre is thronging with the working crowd looking to purge the stresses of the week from their minds, in a quiet corner of Joo Chiat, a residential conservation area in the East of Singapore, the mood is hardly any different from any other evening. A bit too out of the way for the town dwelling financial industry types and office workers, it is decidedly, a little bit more blue collar. A couple share an ice cream sitting on the street bollards chatting, mom-and-pop shop owners went about tending their businesses, a little girl amuses herself skating around on a supermarket trolley and a pair of ladies stand waiting for a taxi, perhaps to take them to a more exciting party downtown.
Just another evening in Joo Chiat.
