Don and Kat were sitting right infront of me and TIA. We were all very eager about the trip because Don & Kat has never taken the train whilst me & Tia rode the train many years ago. It is nice to see different parts of Singapore from a different angle.

For the 1st location me and Don sat at the coffeeshop to sketch  and also take cover from the heat. The 2 old men next to us was just enjoying the peace and quiet and talking about everything under the sun. The tranquility was a nice change for us especially for me.

Very charming row of old shophouses from the early 1900s. Sun was setting so i was trying out my yellow washes.

We placed all our sketches beside the train track for our final picture before taking the train back to Singapore. Hot, sweaty, tired but filled with lots of wonderful memories.

You can see other sketches by TIA & Don on our individual blog and flickr.
