The overlap of tradition and modernity
Was having supper with a very good friend of mine, and the conversation topic shifted over to some of the food establishments around the area. I was commenting about one of the French restaurants which did cater high class food, but allowed people who dressed informally to dine in their premises, a somewhat interesting move for an establishment located near many housing estates. As we walked past it, we realised that it was sandwiched between two pretty run-down pubs, the kind that the middle aged men would be found at drinking their nights away and singing karaoke. It’s interesting how we get sights like these over here, where the old and new constantly find themselves side by side, the clashing of two eras. It’s probably not surprising to see a church and a acupuncturist just next to one another along the same street.
