If you’re in Singapore, on the weekends there’s an interesting flea market (China Square Central,18 Cross Street, Singapore 048423) to visit for a bit of nostalgia. It’s quite relaxing to walk around and look at toys from your childhood and collectibles from the latest action movies like Ironman. Robert Downey Junior’s doll head goes for $50 Singapore dollars. It doesn’t quite look like him but i found a Brad Pitt ‘Inglorious Bastards’ doll that is a complete resemblance. Or is it called an action figure? Couldn’t take a photo because I didn’t want to get yelled at for just taking pictures and not buying anything. Besides toys there’s also old stuff like fans and telephones from the 70s. Spotted a girl with a cool mohawk and snapped away.
For lunch there’s a traditional coffee shop just outside the flea market where you can have a cup of barley roasted coffee and some dry prawn mee (noodles). The type of flat noodles is called kway teow and looks a bit like fettuccinni. I asked for chilli to be added because I love food extra spicy. The noodles were just ok and not the very best, so I’m not gonna post too many details about the place here. It was great to be at a place that was not too crowded.
Just thought it would be interesting to share with my international friends what a traditional coffee shop looks like. It has these marble top tables which lends a cosy ambience to the place and the food is always cheap.
