While we were in Singapore we went and enjoyed roaming around Little India and China town.
That morning we woke up and caught a Grab cab to go to Little India for breakfast. We found the MTR restaurant which is very famous for Indian vegetarian food so decided to give it a go.
The restaurant was busy so we had to wait for a few minutes before we got our table. The place was small and extremely busy but had great service. We ordered some dosa and idly.
The food was good but not exceptionally good to be so famous. May be we didn’t pick the right dishes or maybe I have eaten in many nice Indian restaurants.
After breakfast we went to roam around the area. We went to Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple and Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple. We also went to different Chinese temples.
It was nice and surprising to see so many Chines temples in Little India and visa versa when we went to China town.
After visiting the temples we went to Mostafa Centre for some shopping. It was really overwhelming for me as it was so big and things are everywhere. I prefer to shop in small shops where I feel like I can go and browsers where as in a large place with too many things make my head spin.
We bought one item from the whole building and left the centre.
From there we walk around the area and went to Taka centre. The first thing we did was to go to their food court where there were choices of so many authentic Hawker food.
The food is really cheap here and so yummy. I really loved the food. The only negative point was it was hot and had no air conditioning.
After that we went to the centre to look around and were equally overwhelmed by so many shops selling traditional sarees and lengha. I wanted to buy a few for me and Chhori but it was too much to handle and look inside any of the shops. AS wanted me to buy something but I told him that we need to leave as I couldn’t make up my mind with all the options.
From there we went to the hotel to rest and Chhori had a nap.
In the evening we went to China town. First of all went to a few temples around the area like the Hindu temple Sri Mariamman Temple and a few Chinese temples before walking around the market stalls.
We bought a few souvenirs and gifts.
We also went to a famous Tin Tin shop.
It was AS’s birthday that day so we decided to go to a restaurant and celebrate. We went to Xie Lao Song restaurant and I was glad it was so cool with air conditioning.
For dinner, we ordered chilli crab and duck dishes.
The food was yummy and AS enjoyed his with local beer. AS also had a yummy cheese cake I had got for his birthday.
After dinner, we went for a stroll and saw many people dancing with to some music in an old square. It was so nice to see that anyone can walk and join the group and leave once done.
By this time Chhori was fast asleep in her stroller so we caught a Grab cab and went back to the hotel.
We had walked so much this day and we are so tired that we were fast asleep in our soft warm bed as soon as we go into it.
