Temple Street

I was at Temple Street a few days ago, just as the stalls were being set up.

The overall mood is that of quiet efficiency, of people setting up their stalls on one day, just like any other day.

Sometimes you get a sense of community.

At other times, you see them proudly displaying their skills.

The above reminds me of some of my favourite “ah beng” shops back in Singapore. Usually, they won’t pull a fast one on you, and you’ll actually get a phone or sim card or whatever at a lower price compared to some of the more established big-name chains. And if you need to cut your sim card into a smaller size, they have just the right tool to get it done.

I stepped out of Temple Street and couldn’t resist taking a photo of this young chap:

I remember doing this when I was a kid. Yummy!
