My Neighbourhood - Old Grocery Store

I often drive past this old grocery store on my way to a small supermarket in my neighbourhood past Lorong5. My husband, who grew up in this area, said that this grocery store has not changed a bit, since he was a child. True enough, one can still find 'sng-tiau' (a local version of flavoured popsicles) sold here, sweet icy delights of my childhood days.
Too lazy to go far this really hot weekend, I sat opposite it, in my car for a quick sketch & a sng-tiau after it.

After a long break, finally there's a mini unofficial sketching at Summer Mall. Happy to see some new faces this time hopefully get to see them more often.

Museum Grounds

Yesterday, Ms Yeo and I went to the Sarawak Museum Grounds for some quiet afternoon sketch. The weather was fantastic for outdoor sketching; sunny yet breezy. We picked a bench under a shady tree facing the old bandstand on the museum grounds and sketched. 
After capturing the main subject itself, I continued working on mine while we were having ais kacang at the nearby Summer House, an old pagoda structure with added overhang that housed stalls selling local desserts like rojak, belacan beehoon, shaved ice concoctions. 
We will be back for the other structures.
