This special poster feature one of our favourite and the very iconic 79 Circular Road shophouse which was designed by Ho Kwong Yew and used to house a coffeeshop with a super popular Bak Kut Teh stall. Mr Ho Kwong Yew was one of the leaders of the Modern Movement in Singapore’s architecture.
“Good Morning World
Life has its ups and downs, but in life’s journey, there are little moments such as these, discovering the architecture of a shophouse in the morning, a little break from work or the company of a friend. These moments kept us going.
This morning, we celebrate another new day.”
