Sketches of scenes and people in Geylang during Phase Two [2]

"我是一位63岁的老头家在芽笼44巷,头头尾尾已经在芽笼居住了进二三十年。应为疫情从三月分起一直在家里工作没有上办公楼去。 虽然芽笼对一般国人来说影像不佳,但是我总喜爱这些老地方老店铺应为它展现出我国南洋特有的风情。 疫情时间芽笼如同全国都突然间变得冷静寂寞,但是芽笼的独特环境从它的老店铺大街小巷依然默默的展现出来。 疫情解铃后晚饭过后就会出去邻居公园穿越芽笼大街小巷散散步。 看见每个人都带着口罩的情景觉得情况和平时已经不一样。卡拉OK酒吧还不能营业顾客在外喝酒,经济什菜小贩哥们, 远在中国 老乡亲人通电时也一律都带着口罩。随着马国劳工准许入境芽笼大街小巷也渐渐听到久违又亲切的家乡客家话。随后就拿起手机来打开sketch apps 略略素描略做笔记后whatsapp给朋友们分享。"--Contributed by Koo Kong Khen, as part of the "Documenting COVID-19 in Singapore" collection community call.
