We went to Chinatown. There are many exits at the MRT station but no matter which one you take, you can still reach the same place, it’s just a matter of walking around the area.
This is one of the shopping complexes. The shopping complexes at Chinatown are not as trendy and as stylish as those in Orchard or other places. It reminded me of some what like Hopoh except bigger.
This is taken from Hong Lim Complex where you can find many Chinese medicine shops.
The views from the overhead bridge leading to Chinatown’s whole stretch of souvenirs shops and also the MRT station.
You can find lots and lots of souvenirs here.
We walked walked walked and thought of going to Little India but *LOL* we walked the wrong direction!
Anyway, this is the street that will be closed at night for the famous food heaven, Chinatown Food Street. Didn’t stay there for the food because we had other plan.
Had a seat at The FirePlace at Smith Street because I finally saw the ice cream booth, Uzumaki, again! I saw it at Bugis but was too full and no time to try the ice cream out. I’m attracted to the green booth with the fake ice creams in the glass cabinet ;p I took this opportunity/excuse to sit down there to rest since we’ve not been sitting down for hours ever since coming out of the MRT station, legs were so painful. Finally I could try the ice cream hahaha… It’s not cheap, SGD3 for a small cup! The most expensive I ever had, well… Considering converting it back to Ringgit. I ordered macha flavour. The weather was so hot, it melted really fast. The ice cream is pretty heavy in texture.
Good thing that the guys(I assume they are the owners) were really cooperative ;p Hehehe… Handsome summore! I asked the one who pumped the ice cream to hold it there so that I could take photo of it ;p Later I passed my name card to them.
I’m contended! *LOL* Finally managed to try the ice cream, got a place to rest and got handsome guys to see summore! I just realized I should have ask for their name cards.
Here… The street that will be closed from 6pm-12am on weekdays and 12pm-12am on weekends/public holidays and eve’s.
After the rest, we headed to Little India direction, we decided to walk there and I know it’s crazy! Along the way, came across Carpenter Street.
That’s all about Chinatown. Next will be… Stay tuned!
