The first day I went to Peninsular Plaza near City Hall MRT stop to buy camera stuff, which no one would be interested in so I’ll post it at DigiSniper 🙂
Do you care if I got a Giotto rocket air blower?!
The second day I went with my Mom to Chinatown as it’s hustle and bustle, bright colours and lantern festival should be interesting, along with some good food you can find there.
Well here we are, alighting at Chinatown MRT station, diving into the heart of Chinatown in Singapore at Pagoda Street and following the tourism boards recommendation for a walk around Chinatown to take in the interesting sites.
First real outing with the new D200 🙂
Singapore, a Fine City (You get fined for all kinds of things, like not flushing the toilet, eating chewing gum etc..)
Lanterns lanterns everywhere, the lantern festival at Bukit Jalil heralded nicer lanterns of course.
And yes, you can buy your very own SIA uniform for just $25SGD!
You can get a Trishaw ride around Chinatown.
The uncles play boardgames in the people’s square all day long.
Some of them get bored and/or tired and simply fall asleep.
Some look kinda bad ass.
A golden smile..
After that we wondered into the rag and bone market where they well all kinds of weird nick-nacks.
My favourite portrait..
The old man testing a portable TV in the rag market, it turns out the screen was broken.
This character is Sheng or ‘Life’ (Thanks mooiness) it was very small, part of a large painting taken in almost 1:1 macro.
There was a really interesting antique shop on the way out.
Mom was getting some schooling on how to take pics 🙂
There is some fantastic temples in China town both Chinese and Indian.
Very intricately painted doors!
More to come soon!
