Thai silk from Singapore September 14 2013

Four or five times a year I hop over to Singapore from Hong Kong. When moving out to Asia for the second time I briefly thought I would actually be living in Sinagpore for a couple of years but I am happy to say that Hong kong became my (second) home. I do like taking a little break from meetings when I am there and walk around in Kampong Glam. Trendy Scandinavian shops compete here with the traditional Middle Eastern restaurants, carpet shops and fabric outlets. Having a couple of hours to spare on my last trip I brought back some Thai silk from one of the fabric shops in the narrow streets around Arab street and Haji lane. Maybe not so suitable as a festival smûk but great to bright up that winter jacket or autumn blazer.
