Sketchwalk at Kampong Glam
The last sketchwalk this month was at Kampong Glam, the area where Arab Street and Bussorah Street are. The nearest SMRT station is Bugis.

Kampong Glam is a place with strong ties to the Muslim community. That's the Sultan Mosque at the background

Many of the shophouses and stalls are owned by Muslim owners. There are a lot of shops selling carpets, Muslim clothing and food.

This is the scene I drew. It was about 9.30am and there weren't much cars blocking my view. Usually, cars would line up the streets by 1030am just before the shops open for business.

There are plenty of places selling food, from the food stalls to restaurants. Even though it's a tourist area, prices are still considered reasonable.

These two are from a shop that sells just toy bears.

The lady in uniform checks for parked cars without valid parking coupons. Just to save a few dollars, it's not for Singaporeans to conveniently forget to put the parking coupons, like our friends Don and Tia. They are smart to sit by the road, always on the watch. That's Tia chatting with the lady after the danger (of fines) is over.

On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate this as 4 in terms of danger.

The other sketch I did. It was enhanced in Photoshop. The original colours were too soft, like pastel colours.

A video I shot on the Panasonic GH2.
