Tolong



Walked from Bugis to Peninsula today and separately encountered 2 people asking for money, both english-speaking and middle-aged. One wanted food but only from the food court and not the nearby kopitiam. The other wanted bit of transport money to get home. Would you give any of them?

Begging aside, discovered a myriad of old charms near Albert Center - from pungent dried goods to an old cobbler making women's shoes to hokkien baskers. Too bad didn't have my camera on hand.
