The heritage consultancy I work for has moved back to its old office in the Geylang area for six months. After more than three years based in Haw Par Villa, I’m back on familiar ground.
This is the walkway on the way to Aljunied MRT Station across Aljunied Road. During peak hours, it is a bustling conduit of Movement. At night, after the peak hours have passed, the street lights guide me home.
I like watching and hearing the trains pass by overhead. Together with the roaring of buses pulling in and out of the bus stop, they meld into a soundtrack of urban existence.
