China Town - Singapore

So after Haji we took the train to China Town where we got a different perspective to our night time visit.   It also happened to be such a happy and sunny day, so we really scored :) The little drom store is located in China town and I happily spent way too long inside having a lovely chat with one of the owners Antoinette (you may remember me mentioning from the playground series). I also dropped by the lomography store and scored some expired film - it's currently in my camera and I'm super interested to see how it turns out!


It was fun spotting some tiles as well around the area, I actually brought my mum a badge of a tile design that the little drom shop produced but I can't seem to find that tile series on the web to show you, it was awesome though :)




The photo of Ben was actually taken outside of china town but I liked it, so I've decided it fits in here :)


One of my favourite signs in Singapore was the no durians sign featured on Singapore trains. Ben and I assumed it was because the fruit is so spikey and therefore a dangerous weapon :p but we found out, amongst lots other interesting trivia from our guide in Langkawi that the ban is because durians are so smelly! I'm really sad I didn't try one now :( Anyway back to China town!

I loved all the pretty lanterns from the mid autumn festival :)

More tiles :)


and always something interesting if you look up!

I really enjoyed china town and I'd recommend dedicating a few hours for a wander, if you're planning your own Singapore itinerary :)

  3. Our holiday was the 4th to the 12th and we were in Malaysia, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, we could of walked straight past each other Petra!

    I'd love to have a smell of a durian, any smell that gets banned definitely raises my intrigue!
