Charming Old Houses in Joo Chiat

Old Peranakan Style houses are so pretty in their pastel shades. Saw these in Joo Chiat and wondered what it must be like to live in one.

    I love wandering around Joo Chiat and other places looking at these too, some people have got them looking so lovely from what you can see from outside and the odd glimpse through an open door. We’d love to live in one too if we could.

      I love the old architecture of these and old buildings where they have cement floors or mosaic tiles. Back then people didn’t find it charming or perhaps we didn’t appreciate it till it became rare.

    They are so pretty – remind me of the “painted ladies” in San Francisco.
