Little one had visited Chinatown for only 2 to 3 times and it is always just before Chinese New Year. It was then packed with people who came to look at the lights decoration and buying last minute goodies for the new year.
Since her school is having a break and I am running out of idea where to bring her to, I decided, why not we take a walk at Chinatown and eat some 'delicacies' there. Probably we could see some historic sites too.
We started from Bukit Pasoh., the Street of Clans. We studied the architecture of the place. Most buildings here maintained the vintage look.
|We spotted mordern cum vintage designs @ the Books Cellar|
|New Majestic Hotel and Majestic Resturant|
|怡和轩 先贤馆 Ee Hoe Hean Club|
preserved historic building, one of the oldest millionaire club
|New Building of Pinnacle contrasting against the old shop houses in the foreground|
|OSO Ristorante- Italian restuarant featuring multi- religion crusine|
|1939 Art Academy provides courses for hairdressing, beauty and spa, nail art and make up courses|
|Lantern Decoration for the upcoming Mid autumn festival|
|Little one was very happy and excited. She wanted to catch the pigeons.|
|Start walking towards the birds|
|Chasing and chasing around.... finally she said "I don't want the birds to move." which is impossible... heheh...|
|Some flowering plant we found in the same park. Cannonball Tree|
|Shredded Chicken Porridge and Pork porridge. Spent $7.|
|Shophouses in Sago Street|
|Buddha Tooth Relic Temple And Museum|
|Don't this lanterns reminds you of Japanese Temple?|
|Make shift stalls|
|The soy beancurd many raved about S$1.50 for normal beancurd|
|The Pastries from Da Sheng|
Back :Wife's Biscuits
Front: Crusty Mooncake
On the other hand ,the mooncake has a nice lotus paste fillings with one egg yolk and very crusty skin. I would consider buying it again if I decided to drop by Chinatown again.
