central fire station

August is the month we celebrate our National Day on 9 Aug. Last year four of my sketches were made into stamps with National Day First Day Cover 2011. To celebrate our National Day this year, I decided to sketch our Singapore Central Fire Station which is predominantly a red and white colonial style building.

The weather was too hot so I did this under the air conditioning comfort at the food court opposite the building. The vans, the cars and the plants blocked the lower part of the building most of the time but I had no intention to do the details anyway. It was timely to do this sketch with the red and white National Flag right on the top of the red and white building!
