So today, I had to park along Fish Lane, walk along Toh Aka Lane, take a shortcut through a backlane sandwiched between Carnarvon Lane and Acheen Street (it would have been almost 40 years since I walked in this backlane) before emerging from Lumut Lane into Acheen Street and thence into the Armenian Street sunshine. The whole place had an air of festivity and was abuzzed with people, both locals and the out-of-towners. Some, like me, were very simply attired while others were strikingly well-dressed.
Visited Dr Sun Yat Sen's southern headquarters for the 1911 Chinese Revolution at 120 Armenian Street
After that, walked to the Pitt Street junction and visited the Hock Teik Cheng Sin (Tua Pek Kong) temple
Sun was too hot; perhaps if I had visited in the evening it would have been cooler. But then, I would guess there'd be more people too. And less opportunities to take good photographs.
