It is nice to take a slow walk in Chinatown especially walking towards Outram MRT Station. I seldom walk along this stretch of chinatown. Spotted Poon Yue Association, this is the association where my late in laws were members of.

The Poon Yue Association, which the Chinese philanthropist Hoo Ah Kay, more popularly known as Whampoa helped to form in 1879. The association started a school and provided accomodation for people from Poon Yue district of Guangdong.

Kwong Chow Wui Koon, one of the many Cantonese clan associations set up in the early 1920s. it was well-known for its music and opera show.

Sri Layan Sithi Vinayagar Temple is located in center of China Town at the junction of Keong Saik Road and Kreta Ayer Road. This temple that was built in 1925, has a very long history. You can read more about the history of the temple from its official website.

So many pigeons in the corner park near the temple, spotted a lone white pigeon among them.

Did not know there's so many restaurants in these rows of shophouses. Will try to visit another time and walk further in this stretch of the roads.
