Singapore 2017: Week 2 – Bugis Street

The term “Bugis street” is misleading. It really isn’t a street any more. The original Bugis Street had some un-savoury history behind it. It was a place of bars, pubs, foreign sailors, other assorted foreigners with specific sexual preferences, and groups of transvestites who provided services to them… Indeed, the whole affair with the transvestites was really Bugis Street’s claim to fame, or notoriety.

The Bugis Street of today sits across the road from where it used to be. The old location has become part of a large shopping mall and a reputable (and expensive!) high-class hotel. The new Bugis Street is a low-priced bazaar-style shopping mall selling cheap clothes, gifts, accessories and tourist souvenirs.

Singapore 2016: Week 48 Street Photography

I have been super-busy lately, so falling slow on taking pictures.

Ah… anime conventions with their crazy and fun merchandise and cosplayers. Always something to delight in. Feeling lonely? Get yourself a bolster pillow case with decorated with the anime girl of your choice. Nights are so much warmer with your arms and legs entwined around the girl of your dreams. 😛 – WY

Not all women need expensive hair cuts. A string of inexpensive barber shops have emerged that charge a very economical price for no-frills haircuts.
