Tanjong Pagar Road

Tanjong Pagar Road  where a slopy lane leads to Duxton Hill. An "orang laut" was sighted at Tanjong Pagar in the 1800s. No wonder, the area was a fishing village and later,  a vast nutmeg plantation. Today, its rows of well preserved shophouses are rather eclectic -- from eateries to shops specialising in weddings. Pictures taken on 29 July when Singapore was hit by a number of flash floods but not in Chinatown :)
