Emerald Hill at daylight


Emerald Hill at daylight

Originally uploaded by Liangcai

I brought a student from Carolina around town today, and one of the places that I first took her was to Emerald Hill. Once a Peranakan Settlement area, this place has since been redeveloped by the authorities into one of the main nightlife spots in the Somerset/ Orchard stretch. People still live there, except that most of them are expatriates and those who can probably afford the high cost of living in a prime area. I once walked past the area at night and I saw rows of BMWs parked outside one of the houses, as their drivers mulled around and chatted amongst themselves. Welcome to the life of the rich. The picture looks pretty tame and quiet in the morning, but this area becomes a bustling chillout area and night. It really comes alive.
