I started off my winter holiday in Singapore. What an absolutely gorgeous and posh city! The eclectic architecture and hidden streets of colorful 2 story buildings was wonderful. My friend Amanda and I walked the entire city in 2 days. It was so easy to navigate and the metro system was one of the best I’ve even seen.
I particularly loved Little India, Arab Street and the food hawker stands. The ArtScience Museum was really incredible as was the LEGO exhibit by Nathan Sawaya. We went to eat dinner in the Red Light District and found a taxi driver who gave us a tour of the neighborhood. He sure knew a lot about that business!
An intriguing red door in Little India.
My love of all things Bollywood was fed extensively in Little India! One day, oh one day, I’ll be in a Bollywood movie!
The lobster shells looked like touchable, red textured wall paper. Aren’t they stunning!
We were drawn to the over-sized bird cages we saw from the street, but I fell love with the view from the infinity pool.
Chinatown. Happy year of the snake!
Sri Mariamman Temple in Chinatown.
Red Melon seeds in Chinatown.
We stumbled upon a festival in Little India called Thaipusam. There was a never ending parade of people with hooks, cages, and large needles inserted in their body. It was surreal, I had never seen anything like it before.
Amanda and I met Maggie and her friends and they took us out for a delicious Singapore dinner at the East Coast Lagoon Food Village. We tried Stingray, Chili Crab and Cereal Prawns.
ArtScience Museum. As amazing inside as out.
I was loving these 2 story buildings. The second floor windows were so colorful and interesting.
