Sungei Road Thieves Market // Clutter to some is beauty to others. Among the stray bits of paraphernalia, the odd knick-knacks, the varied novelties, there is something for everyone. And to the people who sell these objects, who man these stalls day after day, it is everything to them. There is beauty in inconsistency, in the frayed mess that is life, in finding a home in an unexpected place. The buzz of chatter and movement and the dizzying sun transport you to a marketplace in the true sense of the word, before shopping malls and concrete jungles came up. When you step out of the market into the calmer open roads, you are surprised at the disparity in volume and clutter; the lack of movement; the notion of absence. Already, there is a pang of loss.
