Arab Street Colours

I enjoy taking guests for a stroll around Kampong Glam and in particular Arab Street.

It is a great excuse for me to look at the gorgeous fabrics on sale, tuck into Malay cuisine, and take in the art deco architecture and beautiful rich colours.

At a recent outing, the cousin couldn't help herself and bought a whole lot of silk to take home. I too, bought 8 metres of light gold coloured silk which I hope to put up on our ceiling.

The folks at Osman Silk House @ No. 104 Arab Street (which I forgot to photograph), were exceptionally friendly, helpful and not at all pushy. 3 traits that made us decide to do ALL our shopping there that day :)

I would like to see the finished work of the gold silk on your ceiling. Sounds lush.

lms: I'm excited about doing it too! But first I'll have to get the cloth hemmed and then ironed (all 8 metres long!) Then next comes the fun part of climbing the ladder to put it up. hehe

i love arab street -- always end up buying material that, erm, kinda sits around in my drawers cos i never get round to tailoring it. gold silk on your ceiling sounds really cool!
