I think anybody who has been here 8 to 10 years should know about Flanders Square because of the murder of a prostitute named Coco there back in 2008.

I park my KTM Duke 390 there regularly (along the side - next to city square). I ride (deliberately to piss them off - it IS a gazetted road though) out via the back alley where all the hookers and johns come in and out. You can see right into the seediest shagging places I've even seen and I've seen some in my time. Only the saddest, most run down hookers work that stretch. 99% of the clientele I think must be foreign workers just desperate for a hug.

The row of houses just behind (Maude Rd) have all been bought up and are being demolished.

A good write up on the "lesser known" red light district.

There are quite a few KTM Duke 125 and 200 that look very similar to the 390, you wont know until you get close to it and read the badge.

I can't tell if OP is the husband or the wife, or which of the two is working for that matter. Hell, not even sure if they just got back to SG or left SG.

Casanova sounds extremely unhappy and should spend some afternoons or evenings in Geylang. That can definitely fit most budgets while leaving room for Dora gear for the kids. :)
