Thanks!

I dont go there too often since I've been abroad and when I come back I usually go to the skyscraper-area But I've been there a couple times for supper or snacks and the food is good and cheap. I also heard you can get great fabrics there.

I will be adding more pics when I can find them

My favourite drink: teh-tarik


More recent pics that I have added

Serangoon Rd is always busy


One of the inner roads




Getting around on trishaw

The thing is I dont visit either Little India or Chinatown often in the first place! But I think its about time I go there soon, as there are so much to discover, and I have not stepped into every street yet.

Its so belated, but finally we have a thread dedicated to drwho, eh?

That orange, crispy, fried thing. Lots of flour and spice? Come on, you must know Muruku! It's the most addictive thing on earth short of drugs!

And I would like to point out that only this station and Farrer Park station has tamil names on the panels....no other station has this.

Yeap...a small touch, but it sure helpos alot in giving a sense of local identity!

Singapore Gujarati Bhavan is supposed to be a place of worship according to my map...not sure if thats the way indian temples are called??
