I started my journey to Singapore in March 2010 by invitation of an old friend. She stayed in Singapore since 10 years old and was willing to share half of her room with me. After that, I paid regular visit to Singapore especially i was employed by a Singpaorean company which worked home-based in Hong Kong.
- they sold cheap goods. A friend of mine told me that the computer monitor is the cheapest in Singapore since she was in charged of setting up an office in Singapore for her dad. For myself, I usually buy spice like Cinnamon and chocolates from the supermarket at the Ground Level. Address: 145 Syed Alwi Rd, Singapore 207704, Singapore
Little India Arcade - A place you find local Indian will go. There are shops selling snacks, desserts, accessories. The main reason I’m going there is to visit the Henna Mehndi shop. This is an Indian tradition to draw temporary patterns on palms and feet as blessing applied to brides, and later applied to be decoration arts towards ladies. I use to have it on my arm for beginning of the visit. They are also selling the tube Henna for people who would like to apply temporary patterns on themselves, I bought one and yes… It’s hard to do well. Address: 48 Serangoo Road, Little India.
1) I went in restaurants that look clean and you can also refer to the sticker at their door. They indicate the rating of hygienic level of the restaurant environment by the government body, with ”A” is the best. Dosa (A kind of South Indian crepe) and Halia Teh (aka ginger milk tea). Recommendation: Sri Kamala Vilas Restaurant, Address: Blk 662, Buffalo Road, #01-16, Little India (Accept Cash only)
2) If you are interested in the Singapore special Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶, aka Pork Ribs Soup), you can take within 30 mins walk from Mustafa towards Farrer Park direction to visit the NG AH SIO Bak Kut Teh Restaurant. It is so famous that celebrities and policians like Donald Tsang - the Chief Executive of HKSAR, Ma Ying-jeou - the President of Taiwan also paid visits to this little soup restaurant. The Bak Kut Teh in NG AH SIO has stronger taste of pepper, not like the others with stronger taste of chinese medicine. Having the soup with plain rice or Youtiao (deep-fried dough stick) can help easing the strong taste in the soup. Gongfu tea (功夫茶) is also available for helping to disgest after lots of these food. Address: 208 Rangoon Road.
