Stories about lives caught amidst East, West, consumerism and tradition.

Stephen Black's latest collection of stories captures the spirit of today's Tiong Bahru.

A historic part of Singapore, Tiong Bahru is known for its traditional food and it's colonial era British architecture. Recently, however, the area has become a favorite for expatriates and Singaporeans searching for a distinctive place to live. The resulting wave of gentrification threatens to reshape both the lives of older residents and the neighborhood's sense of community.

These insightful stories, written with a resident's perspective, are a mix of fact and fiction. Some are emotional, some are humorous, but all shed insight into the deceptively quiet community of Tiong Bahru.
