About Leng
Born, bred and lives in Singapore, Leng works as an art director at Kinetic Singapore. Outside of work, she delves in ceramics, a medium which allows her to freely articulate herself. With emphasis on expression and conceptualisation, an approach influenced by her experience in the field of design, Leng’s creations are more sculptural and veers away from the strictly traditional and functional.

These colourful Peranakan terrace houses along Koon Seng Road is probably the most photographed place in the eastern part of Singapore. I get to enjoy this view every morning on my way to work - of both the architecture and its admirers, which are mostly tourists. Joo Chiat is indeed a very charming place. Besides being a heritage conservation area, this place has an eclectic mix of the old and the new. Old school eateries sit alongside hipster cafes and ice-cream parlours, while KTV and bars are nestled amongst boutique hotels and design studios. Most importantly, Joo Chiat is also well-loved by the locals for its wide array of good food, from the famous Katong Laksa to herbal Bak Kut Teh and Nonya Kuehs.

Located somewhere off the beaten path, surrounded by rustic vibes and lush greenery, JBCS is a place for ceramic enthusiasts. Besides housing a community of potters and artists working with clay, this place has a gallery, sells pottery related materials and equipment and offers classes for anyone who is interested to get acquainted with pottery. In here also lies a part of Singapore’s pottery heritage, one of the last two remaining dragon kilns.

There are plenty of food outlets and restaurants along East Coast Road but this one in particular is my favourite. An old-school eatery with absolutely no-frills, from the interior to the food they serve. They only sell Niang Tou Fu (primarily tofu and vegetables stuffed with ground meat mixture or fish paste) here which is only SGD 70 cents per piece and sour plum drink, both homemade I think. Would highly recommend the crispy deep fried beancurd and add the chilli paste if you like it spicy. Do not expect top-notch service here though, after all its no-frills.
