A day in Singapore in captions

While buying some cheap sunglasses, the Dod decides to pick some of his own. I guess it helps to be high

 

Breakfast in Little India

 

Dosa for breakfast

 

Pulled tea - they pour it from such a height that it gets really frothy and the excess foam is caught by the double cup. Delicious.

 

Burfi for desert after breakfast - we all liked the milk ones the best.

 

Little India is one colorful place with equally colorful people


High rise buildings are everywhere

 

Bakwa selling shop, one of many around Chinatown

 

Bakwa is very popular and with reason, its finger licking, melt in your mouth bbq-ed meat. Quite expensive too

 

Around Chinatown

 

Another Bakwa shop in Chinatown

 

Beautiful shophouses in the center of Chinatown

 

Main market area in Chinatown

 

 

Surprisingly, fruit was quite expensive in Singapore, but I guess they probably have to import it as they have no land for farming.

 

 

Visitors of the Hindu temple in Chinatown

 

 

One of the Hindu temples in Chinatown. We sat in on the grass for a little while, resting.

 

 

Leaving Chinatown and going into the city center

 

One of the few green areas we saw. Nothing much, but at least there was grass

 

Yakult has more than original flavour! There was grape, apple and orange too. Who knew?!

 

Looking for a garbage bin around the only grass in Singapore

 

The river

 

Chilli crab? This is the place. See it, point to it, then eat it.

 

Eat right on the river.

 

A whole line of seafood restaurants, all badgering you to come in. Quite annoying.

 

How Singapore stays so sparkling clean.

 

 

Ice cream cart, where the man makes you an ice cream sandwich by getting two wafers and then slapping a block of ice cream in between.

 

Delicious and refreshing for only $1

 

Kids being kids, throwing each other in the river.

 

Esplanade bridge, next to the Merlion

 

The convention center building shaped like the ever so smelly durian fruit

 

Marina Bay Sands - the most expensive casino in the world - its also a resort, mall and theatres.

 

Esplanade Bridge, where the Formula1 cars fly through each year.

 

Horrible shop

 

I did not buy a wafer of each kind. No, no.

 

The kids got a bag of Jelly Bellies, because Mr.Blab lost a bet with them.

 

Someone bought this doughnut

 

Malls in Singapore are evil - extra nice and extra pricy.

 

Lunch on a bench

 

Glamor mall environment

 

 

This is an art college.

 

Little India fruit and veg market

 

A shrine in one of the shops in Little India

 

Hotel. Kids are playing shop (selling Dodman memorabilia for gazillions of dollars) on the phone.

 

Quick dinner on the floor of the hotel room.
