A few of us met up with Asnee from Bangkok and Kiah Kiean from Penang for lunch before going to Ann Siang Hill and Club Street area to sketch. It was raining so I stayed at the covered area opposite this building in my sketch. The cafe called "Korner" is located on the ground floor of the Scarlet Hotel at 33 Erskine Road in the Club Street vacinity. I used to work at URA opposite Scarlet in 1980s and it was then a dilapidated old building occupied by families with young children. The children often played at the corridor and the women would stick their heads out of the windows on the upper floor looking for their children. Today, this area is a trendy place especially when the night falls.
