"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.
From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers,
to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old,
and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days.
It all exists together in harmony and is honored by Singaporeans.
While in Singapore, I walked through Chinatown to visit the Buddha's Tooth Temple.
and I was very lucky to stumble across a fabric market hidden behind the bustling food dealers called Hawker Stalls.
The fabric I chose is a classic Singapore floral batik pattern that perfectly captures the rich cultural heritage of Singapore.”
