Ng Kim Lee Confectionary

One of the few remaining old-school bakeries in Singapore is Ng Kim Lee Confectionary at 4 Chun Tin Road.

Ng Kim Lee has been around for more than 60 years, selling Teochew-style pastries and old school Western cakes.

Some Teochew families still continue to order wedding cakes and betrothal baskets from them. Other than the old-school tau sar pia, they are known for their mushroom pies, muffins and butter cakes.

Former Yan Kit Swimming Complex

September Sketchwalk

Yan Kit Swimming Complex is located along Yan Kit Road at Tanjong Pagar area. It opened in 1952 and was the second public swimming pool in Singapore. The complex, owned by Singapore Sports Council (SSC), was closed in 2001 after a spike in maintenance fees due to a dramatic decline in the attendance of swimmers.

In November 2011, the demolition of the site commenced and the three pools were levelled.

Kim Choo Joo Chiat Place

Tony and I walked past Kim Choo that day. And decided to sketch their stall front. My parents love their Soon Kueh (Turnip dumplings) and Otah (fish paste with spices wrapped in banana leaves).

They are famous for their  Kim Choo Kueh Chang (Rice dumpling). My favourite is Nyonya Dumpling, which has a distinctive sweet and savoury taste from the diced winter melon and meat in the filling.

Aliwal Arts Centre

Joined the event- Sketches Alight: Rebooted organised by An Artful Dose (https://www.facebook.com/artfuldose). It was a fun day turning own sketch to a lantern. I did a sketch of the venue, Aliwal Arts Centre.

“Aliwal Arts Centre is a multidisciplinary arts centre with a strong focus on performing arts located at the former Chong Cheng and Chong Pun Schools at 28 Aliwal Street within the Kampong Glam conservation district. It offers a conducive environment to support the artistic development of both contemporary and traditional arts groups, drawing inspiration from the rich cultural heritage in the area.”

Wheeler’s Yard

I almost want to throw this sketch away. Kinda like it now.

“Step into the world of Wheeler’s Yard, where bicycles, coffee, food and all things vintage meet. Located right along the Whampoa park connector, a hidden cafe cum bicycle workshop awaits your discovery.

Whether it’s cycling down for a hearty meal with a group of friends or spending an afternoon reading a book while sipping on a warm cup of coffee, one can easily find a reason to visit Wheeler’s Yard.

Housed within a massive industrial warehouse, the luxury of space here allows everyone to break away from feeling claustrophobic and slow down their pace while soaking up the atmosphere.”
