At a coffeeshop opposite the Chinatown Complex Market. Friendly proprietors and the kopi wasn’t bitter like it is at some places.
Erich the chef (found his name from his website) now has a permanent stall at a coffeeshop in Chinatown, very near the Chinatown Complex. Look out for Wuerstelstand (the last sausage kiosk before the equator) and a huge cut out … Continue reading
Extremely long queues for ba kwa. I know I should buy them at off peak season, but somehow you just crave for them during this festive period. I will try to buy Lim Chee Guan bak kwa some weeks later, … Continue reading
Braved the punishing heat in Chinatown to soak in more of the Goat Year festivities. Saw this pretty display of flowery goats in the bazaar amongst other things like vendors calling out for you to buy their candies or groundnuts. … Continue reading
Decided to put all my Chinese New Year, year of the goat posts in one post starting with the oldest one: The Goats are Out in Chinatown Happy Goat Buns at BreadTalk Creative Goat Display for Chinese New Year Another … Continue reading
It’s fun to look at trinkets that tourists might buy. I thought that the souvenirs sold at the Chinatown tourist office (next to the Chinatown Complex/Market/hawker centre) were pretty neat.
Whether you’re a tourist or a local, walking through the Chinatown bazaar pre Chinese New Year is a rather fun activity. Spotted more goat themed decorations.
Wanted to see if more decorations were up so we headed to Chinatown. This time there were lucky coins in the air and the best view was from the overhead bridge. I also loved how the traditional lanterns strung up … Continue reading
It’s nice to walk around Chinatown especially before the Chinese New Year period.
One reason I’m thrilled to live in the tropics is the easy availability of tropical fruits especially durian, rambutan and mango. Saw the intoxicatingly red rambutans while walking past the hawker centre in Chinatown next to the OG Department store. … Continue reading
Every time I’m in Chinatown near People’s Park I see many Chinese patrons flocking to stalls run by people from China selling authentic Sichuan Noodles at the hawker stall nearby. Been meaning to give it a try, but was afraid … Continue reading
The mine and the actress were brilliant and caught the eye of everyone in Chinatown at that time. My partner thought he saw a Delifrance logo, so is this a pastry commercial for Chinese New Year? We are very curious. … Continue reading
First sighting of goats in Chinatown for the New Year. There were sheep too as it’s the year of the goat, sheep or ram. Spotted them pow packets and in the form of plush toys and decorations. Even saw alpacas among … Continue reading
The festivities have begun. I am really liking the year of the horse figurines.
The blinding glare of the sun and the heat combined to give me a splitting headache, but the abundance of light made for great photos. I was wondering how the tourists from cold climates could bear this. I must prefer … Continue reading
Was exciting to spot the huge snake that has just been put up as part of the Chinese New Year Street decorations. Also the lanterns were lit tonight. It was much nicer to walk around in the cool of the … Continue reading
We were both thrilled to spot the huge grapes at Chinatown and as we drove through, rows and rows of pastel paper lanterns. I refer to this festive period as the lantern or mooncake festival but it’s officially known as … Continue reading
There was one time during Chinese New Year, many years ago when I came down with one of my sweetest friends. We practically had to hold on to each other otherwise we would have been swallowed in the crowd. That … Continue reading
The red dragon looked even more awesome all lit up, against the pretty blue sky at dusk. I am so glad I got a close up look. Massive load of cars. And then the massive throngs of people. Felt bad … Continue reading
This is the best way to burn calories. Walk the streets at night at one of the many festive bazaars. The most lively one is the one in Chinatown during Chinese New Year and I hope the photos captured how … Continue reading
This was our second visit and it was fun. Each time I see something new. This is the only time I don’t mind getting bumped into. It actually adds to the festiveness. Just knowing that everyone is out shopping for … Continue reading
You have to try the snack stalls here. Really authentic stuff from China. Pancakes with spicy pork filling. So good. I always see long queues forming. Another popular stall that we tried the last time. The yummy pacake that reminds … Continue reading
