Operators, Peddlers and Streetwalkers

Some Geylang vice updates for August:

Casino operators at the backlanes as usual.

There are more China prostitutes along Geylang Road between Lorong 21 and Lorong 23. They hang around the pavement and carpark. There are also more cigarette peddlers, including females, along this stretch.

There is also an increase in the number of prostitutes along Lorong 21. I think one reason is that the police seldom comes here. The night I was there, both sides of the road were full of parked cars. And about 20 of the cars were taxis! It seemed some taxi-drivers were having fun themselves.

The more brave cigarette peddlers stood at the edge of Geylang Road holding up their cigarettes to entice passing motorists. More cigarettes were in bags or boxes hidden by the roadside or along the passage way at the buildings nearby.

Here are some heroes peddling cigarettes along Geylang Road, Lorong 14 junction - in the afternoon and at night:

There is a blog called I Love Geylang ( but it has not been updated for many months already.
