This shop house is of the same design as the shophouse that I posted in my earlier post on chinatown shophouses (2), but the owner did not do a very elaborate painting and decoration on its building.
The shophouse with red and white paintings on its exterior was the one I posted in previous post.
A closer look and comparision on the windows of the two shophouses. The original shophouse bear some european designs while the newly painted shophouse was painted red to make it looked very chinese.
Another shophouse being renovated by a new owner. Look at the circled area, a plant decided to grow inside a crack of the wall. It must be planted by some birds carrying some seeds to the building. :)
I have more beautiful photos of shophouses in chinatown in later posts.
