restored shophouse @ Petain Road, Singapore

singapore doesn't have a long and rich history like european countries.  so whilst we are used to seeing houses that were a few hundred years old in europe, u probably won't find such old buildings in singapore.

singapore is full of modern buildings that these shophouses built in the 1920s can probably be considered "old" .  they have been beautifully restored and conserved and they are gorgeous.

looking at the details, it seems the architecture seems to combine european and local influences..... think there's a term for that  "Chinese Baroque" or "Singapore Eclectic"

wish we are able to own a piece of history...... but it comes at a steep price! ;)
