From the massively impressive mural of the girl with lion cub (it spans from the front to the end of the wall of the length of the shophouse all done using a photo not projection!) to the trolley kids (similar to the bicycle kids in Georgetown), the peeping kid and kids having a wild time somersaulting out of boxes. These street art murals are done on the side walls of shophouses in Jalan Pisang and Jalan Klapa, facing Victoria Street, which houses events and marketing company amcasia!
We ended with a short but insightful tour around The Sultan, boutique hotel nestled along Jalan Sultan (2012 URA Architecture Heritage Award winner) where we had the chance to go in to take a look at the various detailing and careful work done to preserve the beauty of the traditional shophouses (http://thesultan.com.sg).
Dinner at A for Arbite was inspired by the walk itself and created by Mark. He took the time to come out after each dish is served to explain his inspiration for the dish. A Truly wonderful experience to end a delightful walk!
