Ride to Geylang 4

Shopping complexes are slightly different, at least to my eyes, from other glitzy malls in the aspect that they seem to support a lot of micro-businesses. Entrepreneurs founded businesses ranging from bicycle repair shops, suppliers of wood for making furniture to home furnishings and plumbing fittings. On this occasion, I found the footfall to be subdued, but it could perhaps also be due to the afternoon prayer time.

 

Update: in recent weeks, I have not visited all you SC folks on your respective pages. As it happened that I have recently joined another organization at work. That means, new work content, new processes, new teams and my work commute is significantly longer. I hope to get back to my regular SC activity after settling down.

I am delighted to hear you have new employment, Ayush, and I hope it works out well for you.

This fine image reminds me of an evening I spent with a friend who knows quite a lot about hand woven rugs and who took me on an instructive tour of the vendors in Singapore.
It looks a very nice place.... shiny and clean anyway!
Le magasin du fond a l'air très beau.

The hidden worlds of carpets

Thank you for the update on your life Ayush..
what are the shoes doing there? enjoy your new work situation, Ayush xox
Shopping complexes are definitely different from glitzy malls, Ayush. In America you have more outdoor space when you walk from one shop to another, which I like. Well done here.

We need to catch up on you in real life once the lockdown is over. Are you scheduled for another trip back to Venlo?

That is some shiny place, Ayush. So much to see. Is that a Muslim store, no shoes allowed in.
Congratulations on your job (I hope) and please take your time to settle in and down. Stay safe!!
This looks an interesting place to shop Ayush.

Good luck with the new job. I hope it goes well for you
The carpet shop looks worth a nose around........

Good luck with your new job, Ayush smile
I have been spradic as well after illness, being out of province, then a sudden surgery... The world is spinning differently. just stay safe.
I prefer small arcades like these to big malls, one finds interetsing little shops. Best wishes on your new job, I hope it all goes well for you.

I would much prefer shopping complexes such s this rather than the much bigger malls. I hope any extra work you have taken on comes with extra pay?
Yes, I found the shopping malls in Singapore rather different from those in the US or the UK!
