  7. Your photos really brought me lots of memories about Golden Mile Tower and Rochor Centre during the 1980s. I visited Sg with my best buddy who was later killed in a tragic accident. We were crazy friends like monkeys!

  9. I admire all the street photos you have taken. They are always neat and spotless. If I post my street photos, you might see sampah and lalang everywhere. Wakakakaka

    Hey that plant in Pix 26 is called Daun Kedok which is a popular shredded veggie in the Nyonya's Perut Ikan Curry as well as the Thais serving them in their Mieng Kham appetizer.
