Hello Mr Chew,

I am a Singaporean student and have decided to use Joo Chiat Road as my research topic. Would you be so kind as to help me answer a few questions?

If possible, could you reply with your email address? That way I can email you the questions.

Thank you so much. I think Joo Chiat's a really unique place to research on! (:

I can help to answer your questions but you have to give me your email address.

Hi Philip,

I enjoyed myself reading through your blog entries on the old Joo Chiat.

I used to live in Joo Chiat when I was younger. My grandfather and father were carpenters and they had a shop along Joo Chiat Road.

Recently rode down Joo Chiat Road on my bicycle, here is my account of the ride.
