Bugis Street Caricature Entertainment

Bugis street is a notorious place in the 70s and 80s. It was well known for counterfeit products on sale at a bargain, transvestites and shady entertainments back then. I’ve heard stories from artists friends who worked those streets in the glory days drawing portraits and wished I was there – actually I was there but as a boy I was oblivious to all the vices. And when I’m abroad, I often meet old sailors who fondly remember Singapore for her Bugis street.

Its a new Bugis street now, there is good shopping at a bargain in its maze of bazaar stalls and still great food. It is another must visit place when in Singapore.

OK back to work – so I was engaged to entertain or rather pull in the crowd to the launch of ‘Late night shopping @ Bugis Street’. It was a festive atmosphere with percussion troupe and movie stars to grace the occasion and me drawing in the laughs with caricatures and funny captions.

Movie stars May and Choy who played the role of 'Durian' sisters in the movie '881' graced the event.

In a crowded situation, we do away with tables and draw in a standing position which is more interactive.
