Joo Chiat

Joo Chiat is as lively as I remember. I was also surprise to find this corner shop at the junction of Joo Chiat Road and Ceylon Lane. The shop is occupied by a Chinese paper shop that dedicated to the dead. They make human height paper houses, big cars and household objects offered to the ancestors. I also wonder with the fast changing life style and rapid modernization, how long can this kind of shop devoted to traditional practices stay in Joo Chiat?
