Are writing prompts a useful exercise, or do you find them to be too limiting and/or hokey?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SNEAKY.
Tiong Bahru is a sneaky little neighborhood in Singapore that pretends to be staid and sleepy. Yet, my Saturday morning explorations of Yong Siak Street yielded an independent bookstore and an industrial-steel clad Japanese restaurant with a no-nonsense approach to serious dining.
I’m happy that even with all the unsettling and lightning speed modernity hitting Singapore, these quaint neighborhoods are retaining their identity and opening their arms to non-chain restos and bookstores (with that fresh bookstore smell that I fear is slowly becoming endangered). This is a side of Singapore far from the skyscrapers and crazy ass architecture (yes, I’m referring to Marina Bay Sands, i.e., the ship on top of the hotel).
Enjoy your weekend and greetings from sunny Singapore!
Oh and yes, the Daily Prompts are darned useful!
