Back in the 1970s – 1980s, Bugis Street was one of the most popular places that attracted many westerners. The pasar malam and outdoor eateries created a vibrant atmosphere of the marketplace. Kah Lim (in stripes) imagined himself patronising the place accompanied by caregivers (in white uniforms) from the Institute of Mental Health (IMH). Kah Lim used watercolors on cotton paper for this painting.
