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
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
Very simple and tasteful decorations outside Chijmes. Snapped a quick shot as we were driving by on a drizzly afternoon.
Among all the Christmas decorations I’ve seen so far, the most impressive is outside ION at night. Although this was taken about a week ago, it already felt like the whole world was in Orchard road taking in the sights … Continue reading
In Chinatown I like the immediate area around People’s Park Complex. Outside the complex there is authentic street food from China. I love the spicy buns. They are like chinese burgers – so delicious. But you have to be prepared … Continue reading
Got a chance to see the Christmas street lights before they are taken down and replaced with Chinese New Year decorations. Felt better after the walk. Dinner left us feeling terribly bloated as we over ordered as usual.
On the last day at 2012, we saw the decorations being put up at Chinatown and this week more of it seems to be up. I wonder if the same contractor does all the various festive decorations. That would be … 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

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
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
Surprisingly it didn’t rain…maybe tonight. I’m hoping. I always sleep better to the loud patter of the rain. Our clouds hang so low that it sometimes looks like a magical pure white bonfire on the ground. Later, the pretty overcast … Continue reading
Never thought I’d see graffiti in Singapore. Quite refreshing I must say, when it becomes part of street art. Perhaps poor Oliver Fricker should have tried this artsy area instead of our MRT trains that ended up embarrassing authorities with … Continue reading
Inside Ngee Ann City to escape the heat.
Singapore is really the epitomy of a modern city with a constantly new landscape. If you’re away from Singapore for even a few years, you’ll come back amazed. Right now the Marina Bay Sands is capturing my imagination. I just … Continue reading
Deepavali, the Hindu Festival of Lights (it’s not the Hindu New Year, but a religious day celebrating the triumph of good over evil), falls on the 5th of November this year. You must walk or drive through Serangoon Road to … Continue reading
