There is a mania sweeping over Tulisan’s office. Everybody is sketch-crazy.

It started during a lull betwen waves of flocking visitors on the Camden Market as Suryo sat down and began to doodle. What  started as an idle curiosity soon turned into actions. Melissa give an impromptu lectures on shapes shadings and fluidity of line, while Suryo provide the more technical aspects on how to draw object using grid to get the right proportion of things. Soon everyone in Tulisan, from finance to logistics, was into it. Melissa encouraged sketchers further by sharing tips and tricks as well as her favorite gel-pens.

Ann Siang Hill

In one of my trip to Singapore, Myra urged me to pay a visit to Ann Siang Hill Road. She was assured it was an area I would not want to miss.

WP_JOU_130128ANN_12WP_JOU_130128ANN_11Indeed she was right. Ann Siang Hill Road was a quiet lane across the hustling beat of Chinatown. Myra and I passed the Pagoda Street and, within seconds, the tranquility of the colorful east-meets-west architectures enveloped our steps.WP_JOU_130128ANN_04

The area was named after Chia Ann Siang, a wealthy Malacca-born Hokkien Chinese sawmiller who bought Ann Siang Hill and Mount Erskine area. He was a leading merchant during his time worked for British firm Boustead and Company before going into the timber business and became a partner of the firm Geok Teat and Company in 1863.

I feel like going back and forth in time seeing the amusing paradox of the street’s details: vintage tiles at the background of parking cars and mailbox next to state-of-the-art password-locked entrance.

From café to firm offices, wine parlor to children book store, Ann Siang Hill easily became my muse. – Rassi Narika
