    Absolutely brilliant! Thank you for this. I’m doing a short project on the area myself and I know that it has a lot of history… and you’ve put quite a bit of it into a narrative. ^_^ Very funky and cool!

    • Thanks Steph! Do let me know what kind of a project you are doing. I’m still keen to know more about the history of the shophouse district east of Jalan Sultan, otherwise designated as Precinct N1 in the 1960s and since demolished, save the Hajja Fatimah Mosque…
