Singapore Street


Just some photos of Singapore Street in Seremban. It used to be the main hub for wholesalers in Seremban town. They still have a few wholesale outlets for confectionery, toys, stationary and some shops selling Chinese medicines and other nick knacks. I didn't have much time to take more shots but have promised myself to go back for some more. I want to chronicle as much of old Seremban as I can.

The Chinese Uncle was making the old school stainless steel multi-coffee/hot water/tea container which had separate compartments with taps for that fresh brewed 'kow' morning coffee! The old Mamak dude on the right placed the order and was there to see the finishing touches. Normally these containers were heated up by coal now its with gas and were normally found on smaller outdoor mamak stalls that had not much electricity or water supply.

The interior of the Chop Chong Hing shop. All hand made stuff from air cond ducts, water pipes, pots, pans, kettles, etc.

Confectionery wholesale shop. The buyers pack the stuff themselves. Most own smaller stalls or even push cart vendors.

One of the shops at the entrance to Singapore Street, Seremban.

Hey, next time you goto Singapore Street can you help me take some detail pics of that old school stainless steel multi-coffee/hot water/tea container which had separate compartments with taps for that fresh brewed 'kow' morning coffee? I think I could use one for my stall. Find out the price too, and if they make it in different sizes. Thanks!

No prob man. Think it was made to order but will check. Quantity?

One only will do lah, just for nostalgic fun. Plus give the place some old world charm.

As for size, enough for a total of around 12-15 liters of liquid will do. If got 3 compartments that's 4 to 5 liters capacity each.

Thanks dude!
