The unique icon of Tiong Bahru - the rear staircases. This was done on the day I took my day off from the office and sketched with Paul Wang who had returned from Hong Kong for a few days to sketch at Tiong Bahru in preparation for the up coming exhibition. While doing this piece, we met Max, a photographer who stayed at block 82. Three of us talked and shared about the stories of Tiong Bahru. He promised he would send us the photographs he took of us and our sketches.
