The “Bird Singing Corner” mural is an iconic scene so representative of Tiong Bahru! The bird singing corner in Tiong Bahru conservation area (SIT flats) was a famous one in the 80s. It was demolished to build a boutique hotel.

There was a coffee shop next to the bird singing corner. The men would sipped beverages and eat toasts while keeping an eye on their birds.

Although it was a weekday, several people came to take pictures of the mural. Residents of Tiong Bahru who were walking through the corridor looked at us in amusement.

They are going to see more visitors soon.
