Was at Little India in Singapore recently and B pointed out some informational posters to me. One of them brought back memories about snake charmers. B had never seen them as a kid, but I recall seeing them quite often. … Continue reading
Time to dig out old photos from last year and blog about them. So much backlog. But I just have to mention the Indian Heritage Centre which we explored just before Deepavali last year. Best part is it was free … Continue reading
Visited Singapore’s Deepavali Bazaar (2015): Glad the Haze or should I say Smog has Cleared for Deepavali
Was thinking that I was going to miss the Deepavali bazaar due to the thick haze enveloping Singapore. Thankful for the change with the monsoon and the winds is in a more favourable direction. Less of the smog from the … Continue reading
You can feel the presence of our first PM, Mr Lee Kuan Yew ( I see him more as Singapore’s founder and leader than Sir Stamford Raffles) everywhere. I saw these flyers when we were at Little India. You can … Continue reading
My mum wanted to drive through Little India to see the Deepavali Lights at night. We got into a jam but it was worth it. Love our street light ups and I can’t wait to see the Christmas night lights … Continue reading
Now is a great time to visit Little India with the added excitement from Deepavali, the festival of lights. Wrote about my visit at White as Milk.
Ready made plastic kolams. I prefer traditional ones made with lots of effort – chalk drawings filled in with coloured rice. Again I prefer home-made goodies to these mass-produced ones. Lots of interesting decorative items. It’s rather fun to walk … Continue reading
Mustafa, the 24 hour shopping mall in Little India is a Singapore experience you should not miss. It’s hard to describe it and the first time you enter it can be an assault to the senses. So much stuff with … Continue reading
Out with my uncle and aunties and we were excited to spot Alphonso Mangoes. It was lovely to see so many boxes of mangoes in one place. These were wholesale ones going for S$2 each. I tried them and they … Continue reading
Realize that all the food and wandering posts on my blog can be overwhelming for tourists. Have been meaning to do a must see list of sorts for some time, and then I got too overwhelmed myself. Finally got the … Continue reading
I was excited to see rambutans at Tekka Market as they hardly seem to be in season these days. Rambutans and Durian are my favourite fruits. I guess I have to include really good Philippine Mangoes as well, but we … Continue reading
Posting some of my photos taken just after New Year. I have such a backlog and think I will probably go on a blog binge and then take another internet break for a week. It was a big mistake to … Continue reading
Anjappar is from India. Chennai specifically. The old name, Madras, might be more familiar. The cuisine is referred to as Chettinad. Every couple of weeks I crave for thosai and since we were at Mustafa we headed to the branch … Continue reading
One of the little stalls selling fresh produce.
If you want pure vegetarian South Indian food, then I would recommend Murugan Idli Shop. I thought their logo of steaming idlis was simple and enticing. It’s a 15 year old chain from Chennai in South India, with 2 outlets … Continue reading
It was scorching hot, but we decided to take a quick look at the fair. Deepavali decorations. Fresh coconuts. Punjabi suits, kurtas and Indian style clothes for kids. Just across the road is Mustapha. The fair is located just across … Continue reading
Old white shophouses with red roofs are so pretty.
If you’ve ever wondered why there is a perpetual jam and construction going on at the site where the old Kandang Kerbau Hospital used to be, here is the answer. The new Little India MRT Station which is slated to … Continue reading
Haven’t yet seen the street lights at Little India, but took a look at the decorations during the day. This year Deepavali falls on my uncle’s birthday, 26th October. The peacock is the perfect majestic and auspicious symbol for Deepavali … Continue reading
A wonderful thing about Singapore is that you just need to drive for 5-10 minutes and you can come across religious buildings of all faiths. Can’t wait to see the full facade of the beautiful Sikh temple when it’s renovation … Continue reading
There’s always something to see at Little India. I would definitely recommend that you come here if you’ve never been to Asia and are on a stop-over flight. Just spend an hour walking along the little streets. And bring your … Continue reading
