WONDER if all those nice sculptures on the walls of old buildings can be preserved when it's time for them to face the demolition ball? Perhaps they can be dismantled and put in the Museum of Asian Civilisation? Here are some interesting ones I have "preserved". I am sure there are many more interesting bas-reliefs on walls. Must take more walks soon.

This is one of my favourites, showing the old OCBC Bank trademark on a shophouse at South Bridge Road.
Birds, dogs, monkeys, flowers, you can find them on the walls of this shophouse at Lorong Bachok, Geylang.
And this pretty mirror graces the wall of a shophouse along Jalan Besar. An aside, three units of shophouses along Jalan Besar are on sale for $16.5m, reported The Straits Times today. If only I were rich enough :)
