This 2010 photograph shows a sculpture titled "Another Day (The Coolies)" by Chong Fah Cheong, who is a Singapore sculptor known for many public sculptures in Singapore, one of which is "The First Generation" found at Cavenagh Bridge. In this artwork, two lean and muscular men are sharing a simple meal on a wooden bench and table. One of the men squats unceremoniously on his seat whilst the other draws up a leg to his chest as he raises the bowl to his lips. This sight, once unremarkable for its ubiquity, is considered a "vanishing scene' amongst an expanding list of 'endangered' sights in urban Singapore. Title devised by Library staff.
