One month in Singapore

Family time, a bit of exploring, a lot of hawker centres and then the trip came to an end.

Having a bar all to yourself on a late afternoon pretty much sums up the luxury of playing tourist back home. With 23 types of craft beer on tap (all foreign), am I asking for too much by hoping for just one more from Singapore one day ?

Been walking along a lot of railway tracks of late, most recently last week, this time in Singapore.

While it’s a pity that the majority of the tracks has not been conserved, I hope we can preserve the railway land in its current state without any additional bells and whistles.

For those who might be interested, that yellow sign marks the total distance in kilometers from Butterworth, Penang — the starting point of the KTM West Coast Line.

Can’t say I now know Tiong Bahru like the back of my hand but definitely much better than before. Probably best to go on a weekday when it’s calm and quiet sans throngs of camera-toting, café-hopping hipsters.

Long overdue

It’s funny — maybe not so funny — that I don’t know Joo Chiat as well as I should given that I’ve been an Eastsider all my life. Spent an afternoon with the husband this trip back aimlessly strolling around Joo Chiat, exploring its nooks until we had to hurry home for dinner. Not surprisingly, I’ve since come down with a serious case of conservation shophouse envy.
