Gentrification of Geylang

Postby PNGMK » Fri, 27 Nov 2015 6:05 pm

I guess it had to happen but now it really is...

I tried to buy in that area many years ago but the banks kept turning me down. Another iconic Singapore area lost no doubt.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Have hipsters moved in already? How many craft beer breweries have vegan, free-range, gluten-free quinoa and kale on the menu?

I'm just kidding; we all know Singapore is too sterile for hipsters. Instead, you get Chinese and Indians in their mid-twenties, most probably working in the financial sector, with the occasional flat rented out to expats from "Western" countries.

But they won't be grass-fed/conflict-free protein shots.
