What is the situation like in your corner of the world?

I left my hometown for the bright lights of the city almost 40 years ago.
Although I regularly visit my parents who still live in the town I grew up in, I've been walking the same way I did before — rushing about on an errand and missing out the historic landmarks that tourists flock to visit.
Sharing the gems of my hometown that I always see but never noticed ....
Looking through the eyes of my phone...
|Our very own Trafalgar Square|
|That's our town hall in the background. Note the colonial architecture.|
|The Birch Memorial Clock Tower|
|Part of the neo-renaissance facade of the Hong Kong & Shanghai building — it was once the tallest building in town|
|Heong Piah has a flaky crust encasing a sticky sweet filling made from malt and shallots|

The button ginger gets its name from the lovely flower head that emerges as a luscious red button.

I was traipsing around my hometown looking for a coffee shop when these murals stopped me in my tracks.
Gotta love Marilyn Monroe.
“We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.” ― Charlie Chaplin
