Ministry of Moral Panic – Amanda Lee Koe
Meet an over-the-hill Pop Yé-yé singer with a faulty heart, two conservative middle-aged women holding hands in the Galápagos, and the proprietor of a Laundromat with a penchant for Cantonese songs of heartbreak. Rehash national icons: the truth about racial riot fodder-girl Maria Hertogh living out her days as a chambermaid in Lake Tahoe, a mirage of the Merlion as a ladyboy working Orchard Towers, and a high-stakes fantasy starring the still-suave lead of the 1990s TV hit serial The Unbeatables.
Last weekend, we decided to pop by the Ramadan Bazaar at Geylang to check it out. GG was most insistent that we go down to check the market as she had heard about it from her friends. I too had last been there before the children were born, so thought it was a good idea to see how it has changed over the years. It’s become more hipster now and was super crowded, but here are some photos to share.
Some pictures from the Singapore side when I went to the Open House at Pulau Ubin.
I was checking my Flickr account after what seemed like years and saw some of the first photos I had uploaded there. Decided to download them and share them here. These photos are all between six to eight years old.
