Chong Pang Village,Sembawang, Singapore

1 Mar

Often times the places I visit offer special opportunities to satisfy my quest for that something special, not necessarily for shopping or sight seeing. This time at this quaint place in modern Singapore, Chong Pang Village, I came here to look for  an old China brand of harmonica with the name Butterfly. I found a small music shop here, selling mostly guitars and backpacks and some harmonicas. Yes they have the brand I was looking for, and another called Swan. The Butterfly harmonicas are recent ones, not unsold old time items. Too new for me. Gave them a pass.

They  I came across  several old hardware stores. Approached them and asked for old carpenter rulers. They were  helpful and lamented that they are no longer available.

Ended my quest with a walk around the busy market and food  stalls. Had my morning coffee and did a sketch to mark my  visit.
