Finding Hidden Treasures in Singapore

In the 3 years that I’ve lived in Singapore, many a weekend has been spent exploring the little lanes and by-lanes of the city.

During one of my rambles along Joo Chiat Road (a colourful, heritage area on the east coast of Singapore), I came across an unusual antiques shop – the Changi Junk Store. This story is about the store and its owner, Haji Basman.

The article appeared in the Nov-Dec’14 issue of PASSAGE, the bi-monthly magazine of the Friends of the Museums Singapore.


Sadly, Haji Basman has since closed the Changi Junk Store 😦
