window views and doors too #8:

03 Feb

I believe this is Trengganu Street in the heart of Singapore Chinatown (it has been two years since my visit so pardon the momentary amnesia).  The street has been converted into pedestrian mall.  It is lined on both sides by shop houses.  As the name suggests, shop houses are houses that are used both as a shop on the ground floor and residences on the  upper floor. 

I read somewhere that these shop houses were renovated for tourism purposes.  Second image is a little close up of the the colorful windows of the shop  houses.

    Well, I’m glad they were ‘renovated’ for the tourists rather than torn down. Can’t be a very quiet place to live, though!

    Gorgeous street mall! And those red shutters… They could be posted for Ruby Tuesday! They are wonderful! 🙂

    Love the colourful bustle of the street scene! And those shutters on the windows in the second photo have such dramatic flair!
