Ataur Rahmam

Ataur Rahmam

This is Ataur Rahmam, he migrated to Singapore from Bangladesh many years ago to provide better living conditions for him and his family. Since moving to Singapore, he has found refuge in Bugis, an area within Little India where he sells hand-made Turkish lamps and exotic Persian rugs. 'Many people come to my shop and lose themselves in the colours of the lamps, they will stand there and forget where they are for a while. This is the magic of the lamps, this is why I love selling the beautiful glasses, because I know the people will love them in their home, and it makes me happy to bring happiness to other people from around the world.' - Ben Mikha

Old meets new in Singapore

Old meets new in Singapore

The contrast of Singapore is amazing. If you head in to the main city, you're dwarfed by huge, modern day buildings. Yet if you head 5-10 minutes out, you suddenly find yourself surrounded by rich culture, street vendors and religious sites. It's awesome though, if you ask most locals where they're from they'll tell you Singapore! Chinese, Indian, Malay or Arab, to them they are one nation, regardless of their differences. - Ben Mikha
