Every day at 5.30am, the sounds of the azan call sounding from the nearby Abdul Gaffor mosque can be heard by the residents of this place and mark the the start of the day.

It is a good time to start the waking day, Ayush.

Love this image!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Ray.
It would have been a good time for me too during my early morning jogging days. These days I have the chime of a garbage disposal truck reversing. grin
That is terrific.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Michael.

Je n'avais jamais vu de séchoirs dans ce sens là .
Ayush Basu: This similar concept can be seen in many Asian countries, Martine. Ceci est en général dans de nombreux endroits en Asie .

I like the washing "lines", Ayush
Ayush Basu: Rather obtrusive but generally effective, Lisl. The newer designs still have these provisions but a lot less conspicuous.

This looks like a mad piece of urban art Ayush
Ayush Basu: Now since you put it that way, I could have titled this "Same-same but different".
Quite an original diplay of flags Ayush...I love it!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Richard.
I like this novel way of hanging out the clothes. That is my rising time too with no call by a mosque or alarm clock.
Ayush Basu: Yes, they found a good substitute for the rooster, Mary. Mine is the reversal chime of an humble garbage disposal truck grin
Very good photo, i like!
Ayush Basu: You are very kind, Roland.
I guess if it's windy it would be a long walk down to ground floor level to collect the washing blown off by the wind.
Ayush Basu: Lots of clothes pegs to the rescue, Brian. But yes, every once in a while, some clothes probably still get blown off.

Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Gil. Have a fantastic week ahead!
this is a great set of clothes lines Ayush...
when we were in Barcelona in 2006 there was a narrow street where the clothes were being dries on the balconies... it was a colourful scene:

it made for a very cool photo as well....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the link, Peter. I liked it. I missed it the first time round and looking through the comments made me recall the other SC regulars.

They are mostly moslems for sure? I like the washing lines.
Ayush Basu: The prayer calls are for the Muslims, yes. But generally speaking, ethnic Malays (who are Muslims) form a little less than 15% of the total population. Thank you for the comment.

Love the washing lines. You really don't want to drop anything from those. 5.30am is fine at the moment; not so sure once I retire.
Ayush Basu: Well, the residents found a fine substitute for a rooster, Alan. I am sure the residents maintained large supply of clothes pegs smile I am sure you will have more time to spend on your bike, so perhaps 5.30am could still work for you!
Yes, of course, Singapore is just across the water.
We used to a family too. wink
Ayush Basu: Yes, I can imagine that. So that was perhaps before your move to the UK smile
City dwellers are very inventive!
Ayush Basu: These are built into the architectural plans, Elizabeth. In the modern designs, these are less obtrusive.

An ingenious way of drying the washing.
Ayush Basu: Seen commonly in other Asian nations also, CP.

What an extreme clever way to 'hang the wash'..... takes a lot of muscles though to not make it 'fly and dry'...
Great shot smile
Ayush Basu: I did this myself in one of my previous accommodations and I have to say it takes a good pair of forearms to hang out the laundry (if you have a partially wet pair of jeans)! But I did like the stiff, crinkly feel of the cottons after they are sun dried. DO NOT forgot the clothes pegs smile
