Geylang Goes Up Market

Look, mom, there's a brothel next to our block!

Those moving into their new flat at Sengkang West may think they have it bad because they will be sharing space with a columbarium. Spare a thought for those at the even numbered Lorongs of Geylang, especially the area URA has decided to rezone from "Residential/Institution" to "Commercial/Institution."

The emphasis on commercial over residential considerations is an obvious choice for the Urban Development Authority (URA). Confucius once said "微臣從沒見過 如斯好德如好色的人", which can be loosely translated as "never has the virtuous take precedence over vice". The infamous "Four Floors of Whores" at Orchard Road has always done a roaring trade, whatever the state of the economy. Perhaps something more posh sounding is on the drawing board for the Designated Red Area (RDA) Geylang district, something along the lines of "Skyscraper of Sluts" or "Prostitutes@Pinnacle?"

The outcome is inevitable - URA has weighed in with the overseas funeral parlour developer - but those affected will no doubt still go over the fine print in their signed contracts. Proud owners of residential developments under construction (#1Suites, Treasure@G20, Treasure@G6) and recently completed (Royce Residences, Central Imperial) may not have that much to lose. Sleeping jowl to jowl next to a member of the oldest profession of the world is definitely more desirable than proximity to an urn of ashes.

  1. What's wrong with making more money, Tattler? Besides, as you say, you can get the satisfaction you desire at your doorsteps. Just tell the old lady that you are going out for a cigarette.

    2. Had been wondering why the slang for a smoke was to have a "fag "? Now it is clearer if you miss pronounced it just a little bit!

    3. Tell your old lady that you are going out to buy her some durians....but don't say mangoes, if you recall Michael Palmer ex-MP. More than enough time for a fag and/or a shag.

  3. The law says it is illegal to profit from prostitution.

    What if the prostitute pays the Geylang hotel owner who collects GST on behalf of the Govt for renting the room to the prostitute ?

    Legal or not for the PAP Govt to collect GST on prostitute services ?

  4. You need to stay next to a legal brothel to draw a fair comparison. I stay in Geylang and prefer it to staying next to a place of worship. Most of the people who frequent brothels are rather discreet and leave once their business is done unlike worshippers who like to loiter around and gossip adding to the noise and traffic.

    1. Think I agreed. Living close to whorehouse beats next to a deadhouse. One stoke my desires, the other kills it.

  5. geylang has always had brothels. if u dun like tt,
    move somewhere else lah. prostitution is one of
    the oldest professions. if those little india workers
    had easier access to the service, they r unlikely
    to have rioted. sex is a gd way of releasing stress.
    and a lot more meaningful than counting money.

  6. Which is the oldest profession in the world?
    - Prostitutes or Politicians?

  7. It's certainly lively at night and beats many parts of Singapore which are funereally boring after sunset. The "trade", aside from it's core business, generates a lot of "ancillary" enterprise and activity like food, drinks, shopping, entertainment, etc, so it's good for the economy and the residents - that is if they are not prudes or sour pusses (any reference to the female anatomy is unintended).

  8. “Appearing nude in public or private place

    27A.—(1) Any person who appears nude —

    (a) in a public place; or

    (b)in a private place and is exposed to public view,

    shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $2,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months or to both.

    (2) For the purpose of this section, the reference to a person appearing nude includes a person who is clad in such a manner as to offend against public decency or order.

    (3) Where an offence under this section is committed in a private place, it shall be lawful for a police officer to enter the private place without the authority of the owner or occupier of the private place to effect the arrest of the offender."

    How come the girls in Geylang never seem to get into trouble? They do it under blankets?

  9. 笑貧不笑娼 literally translated means looking down on the poor(money wise) BUT, not mindful of the deceitful and despicable.

  10. Nothing unusual. Any red light districts in any major city will ultimately go through a revamp. Don't be surprised if we one day have an Amsterdam-style shop window for 'approved" prostitutes who have the COE to parade their ware for service.

    After all, even the swedish children are getting an early start on Willy and Twinkle. What's the outcry here for adults?
