Mural on Jalan Pinang
We were winding our way back to our car through Kampong Gelam when I chanced upon this gem, Satay Club, by my favourite mural artist, YC. I was delighted and stopped to admire this depiction of a satay hawkers from decades past.
YC recently had a solo exhibition, where he applied his vibrant mural style to canvas.

My first memories of this beloved Singaporean food is as a 4 year old. squatting next to Encik (Uncle) Satay Man, after a full day of family fun at Changi Beach. As he fanned his charcoal fire to encourage the marinated meat skewers to cook, our tummies would growl as we waited impatiently. Once ready, Uncle Sam and I would compete to see who could devour more skewers. In retrospect, I think he let me win.
