Wow I guess the adventures are getting a tad too long. But don’t worry, this is Day 5 and the last! It’s a pity that due to time constraint and transport issues, I’m not able to explore places like Balestier, Whampoa, Queenstown more 🙁 But I will just make do with places which much more accessible!
Sin Chong Goldsmith which has been in the business since 1983.
New Ai Wai Watch Service which has been here since 1988, sells 2nd hand watches and does watch repairs. Really amazing couple. And apparently my Dad told me that this couple stays in the same estate as us, hmm what a coincidence.
This auntie was REALLY hostile and unfriendly towards me… She couldn’t understand why I wanted to take her shops as there’s other shops to take. But still, she let me shoot some photos of her shop. Even when I complimented her store, she was just totally straight out mean to me 🙁 Anyhow, the shop is roughly 30 + years old.
Quan Li Tonic that has been around for about 40 years! (That is really long)
This no signboard shop which sells EVERYTHING, has a friendly lady boss (she said i look studious HAHAHA) But anyways, shop was founded in 1983.
Alywin Trading & Services, which does bike repairs and sells bicycles, has been around since 1992.
Ahmad, your neighbourhood barber shop with really friendly hairdressers, was founded in 1993. Love their shop design, so old-school and retro.
Sin Keck Siang Trading, an alteration shop which has been sewing since 1992. That sewing machine has been around for at least 60 years! As said by the lady boss.
I guess this sums up the journey of me finding shops that are 22 Years & Above. Sigh if only I had more time to travel, I could find even better and more interesting shops 🙁
