Old and New

March 13, 2020

"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.”
