Singaporean ghetto style.

When I took the train home, I would see young kids in full baggy hip hop gear with one pant leg up on a knee and one pant leg down, walking with that gangsta limp, get off at stations like Pasir Ris, and I would think, "Hmmm... I didn't realize that Pasir Ris was that rough a neighbourhood..."

So I came up with the design below and hand-stitched it onto a t-shirt. Yes I used to live in Kembangan.

And in case you aren't aware, that is the code number of the Kembangan MRT station.

Dear Jo Soh,

Thanks very much for your interesting blog, love the hand-stitched style of your newest shirt!

I actually have a question about your blog. Would you mind helping us with a linguistic research project? We're compiling data from various Singaporean weblogs. All it requires is checking a few boxes. If you want to take part and/or have more questions, drop me a note ( RE: Question ) so that I can then send you the 'official' project eMail. We'd really appreciate your help.

Thanks very much in advance!
Best regards,
- Fran
