Dempsey Road 23 July 05

The Dempsey Road area used to be army barracks. Today the colonial-style buildings have been put to use housing mostly antique and ethnic furniture shops.

The old still stands

Used and discarded

Party animals

A quiet moment

"Feeling a little disembodied? You don't say..."

New life to an old space

Keong Siak Road 15 July 05

Like the rest of Chinatown, Keong Siak Road, previously renowned for its ladies of the night, has undergone some form of redevelopment.

An anomaly in Chinatown?

The traditional business

More traditional business

What's new

Attracting new clientele

Hip and trendy - 1929 Hotel

Flash, no less

Pubs with a local flavour

New Age spin

They don't come newer than this

The old remains

Not all is lost
