photoblog image Murals of Tiong Bahru 3

Murals of Tiong Bahru 3

This is a traditional roadside stall selling curried noodles with chicken, while patrons occupy foldable tables and stools, while enjoying piping hot bowls. A lot of such stalls were movable and water sources were not well regulated, so the Government moved to create built up food courts with potable water points, along with mandatory inspections and certifications by the health authorities. In summary, the scene depicted above is nowhere to be found in today's Singapore.

That is really nice.
Ayush Basu: Thank you kindly, Michael.
It's very well done... and perhaps a good reminder of simpler times?
Ayush Basu: I like how you put it and I would like to think so too, Elizabeth.

Jolie scène de vie.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you, Martine.
Interesting history to be found here, Ayush. I find it fascinating.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Ginnie. As Elizabeth mentioned, they were simpler times.

This is a nice example of local history ten Ayush
Ayush Basu: As Elizabeth mentioned, they were simpler times, Chris.
Très sympa cette peinture murale.
Une graphisme que j'apprécie aussi.
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: Yes, a lot of time and effort went in to the making of this piece, Pascale.
This picture is full of charm Ayush
Ayush Basu: The artist has done some more pieces in a similar vein, Bill.

i see dumplings!! i love dumplings smile too bad they weren't allowed to CARRY potable water.. because this looks very quaint and sweet
Ayush Basu: I imagine in those decades, there was no concept of potable water! Made me wonder since when exactly have WHO standards on drinking water come into force.

That food sounds great Ayush. I took to curry and rice as a child when my father, who served in North West India from thirty years, used to cook.
Ayush Basu: It tasted good to too, Chad - as I had the opportunity to sample this food in identical environs in Penang in 2017. And thank you for sharing that bit of personal info with us. I wonder if you refer to the arid province of Rajasthan?
I really like this, the best of the series so far.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the comment, Brian.
a charming scene...
Ayush Basu: As Elizabeth mentioned, they were simpler times, Larry.
Very beautiful these murals, illustrate the life of the place better than real images.
Ayush Basu: I agree, Claudio, this is the work of a talented artist who pays much attention to details.

Such detail, Ayush. I bet the food tasted good
Ayush Basu: The artist has a bit of a reputation for murals of this vein, Lisl.
Everyone seems happy, Ayush, times gone by.
Ayush Basu: I think people of that generation would be horrified by what we do to our food today, Frank.
And no doubt the food is very enjoyable.
Ayush Basu: These eateries have disappeared but the food is still available, Tom.
i am sure that the days shown in the mural have long past Ayush...
how did they ever manage to keep from being sick back then... pure ingredients is my guess....petersmile
Ayush Basu: You are quite right about that, Peter. In Penang though, I had the chance to similar this food and almost identical conditions as of last year. And I think you nailed it when you remarked about pure ingredients.

But still very common throughout, Thailand, Ayush.

The food tends to be delicious!
Ayush Basu: Also in Malaysia (or at least in Penang, up north and not too far from the Thai border) as of my 2017 experience, Ray.
