Lunch Anyone?

And guess what? During our travels to Singapore in 2022, we had the pleasure of exploring the vibrant streets of Chinatown and stumbling upon Yip Yew Chong's mesmerising and massive murals. As we walked through the markets, we couldn't help but feel a sense of awe and wonder. The colours, the details, and the stories behind each mural were truly captivating.

One particular mural caught our attention—the one featuring a table set for lunch, with an empty seat just waiting to be filled. We couldn't resist the temptation and decided to take a seat just like Geo does in the mural on our Chinatown Markets Street Art Explorer Backpack. We snapped a picture, and it instantly became a cherished memory of our time in Singapore.
