Blessings of Singapore

5

Here is a massive collection of photos in various communities in Singapore! Taken with fellow Lomographers and photographers on our walkabouts through alleys and finding new places to see, despite having lived here all my life.

This was taken on a walkabout along Joo Chiat. While Little India is the tourist-popular area housing several temples, along Joo Chiat and Ceylon Road stands the majestic Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple. The history of the Temple began more than 150 years ago – in the 1850s – with the discovery of a statue of Lord Vinayagar by the side of a pond.

The Hindu goddess in this picture is Maha Luxmi or Mahalaxmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage; and the embodiment of beauty, grace and charm.

Kampung Lorong Buangkok – the last surviving Kampung in Singapore. Relive the good old days of Singapore before the 70s by taking an idyllic stroll through the small ‘village’
There are still families staying there, but unfortunately this may change in time to come.

Welcome to Little India! An ethnic neighborhood set in the heart of Singapore. A tourist favorite, you will never fail to see trishaws breezing through the traffic (human traffic too). Brimming with Tamil cultural elements, you’ll see temples, budget outlets, food stalls and 24-hour mega malls – all crammed into walkways and alleys. More often than not, you will also spot people picking empty cans or cardboard in exchange for a little bit of money.
