Singapore's Little India at night

BUOYED by payday in the first week of the month, many foreign workers made their way to Little India to shop and remit money home.

Snaking queues were seen at ATMs in the evening, while some businesses cautiously reported increased takings compared with last Sunday – though still nowhere near the levels before the Dec 8 riot.

But shopkeepers selling alcohol said sales remained slow after police banned the consumption of alcohol in public places in Little India during holidays following the riot.

Subramanian, 33, a cashier at a diner along Campbell Lane, said business was “slightly better” but that many workers were still staying put in dormitories on their weekly day off. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
