I went to Johor Bahru on two separate days and walked west JB Sentral. In the 3-by-3 blocks explored, the following photos are of people, cats and sights I encountered.
Man and his afternoon nap using arms as eye mask.
One block away a cat sleeps under a car. Taking advantage of warmth from engine or protection from potential rains?
This kitty doesn’t take naps. It silhouettes itself to resemble Batman.
Indian women in vibrant green sari resting her hands on the cage of her fortune-telling bird.
Around the corner was a street lined up with Indian flower shops where they hang a rainbow of floral necklaces. The man in the front sways his head sideways with a serious face while making his necklace. I’m sure he can braid it blindfolded. The man in the background smiles as his teeth shine brightly.
This building was amusing. Not quite understanding the purpose of the curves above the window. Looks like incomplete pimples with rectangular blackheads.
Feisty dragon resides at the Old Chinese Temple.
Man praying. Not familiar with what specific type of religious ritual he is performing, however I found this moment to be profound. Whether he is asking for help or repenting, he speaks with an open heart.
Don’t know his real name nor what the locals call him, but to me he’s “Gangster Grandpa.” He sells coffins and durians in the same shop.
His cigarette clouds make him look like he’s got wisdom whiskers on his chin.
I spy a rooster.
Rooftop with white skies. Antennas have a contemporary, fine-artsy air about them.
In one day I saw more cats in Johor Bahru than my first month stay in Singapore. 5 versus 1.
