Little Thailand


Last night I had a craving for Thai beef noodle soup so I drove to Golden Mile Complex at Beach Road - our Singapore's "little Thailand". You can find numerous Thai pubs, shops, eateries there. Fish sauce, garish signboards, Singha beer bottles and everything Thai are all over the place just like being in Bangkok. With its dipalated rundown interior, it was hard to imagine that the building was once famous among the architects for its modernist mega-structure design where shops, entertainment and apartments were all housed within one complex.

This sketch was done after a satisfying bowl of beef noodle soup. People in this sketch are all Thai-speaking food sellers and customers. For a moment, I thought I was in Thailand.
