time out from camp
Some days I just like being without a care in the world with you.
Exploring an older part of Singapore at half past five on a weekday.
For some energy before we traipse down the opposite street in search of desserts :)
This was actually a spicy version of a spring onion pancake.
But it tasted like spring onion bread.
But also too oily.
You're a mess after eating it.
What does one hear? What would you see?
These red lanterns are ubiquitous.
Cameras and tourists abound in this heritage landmark.
Seemingly in search of a certain something.
Aptly describing us- the pretend tourists for a day.
Oh. Look! It's the Captain. And the rest of the Tin Tin crew.
Themed shops never last long in Singapore.
Look at the Disney Store.
The Snoopy Cafe.
And now Tin Tin.
This shop attracts curious shoppers but everyone's on a browse mode.
Not a purchase mode.
And when we eventually found a dessert shop.
We walked in for some.
It wasn't the shop I was looking for.
But I didn't know the name/ exact location of what I was trying to find.
Now if there's pumpkin cake on the menu,
it's definitely pumpkin cake I'm ordering. :)
His almond paste didn't impress him anyway.
Now this is a store I grew up queueing at.
From when I was younger and I stood in line with my parents.
Till I was older and stood in the queue on my own.
Usually that meant everyone buys their food and eats without me while I patiently stand in line
and have that in replacement of my meal.
What's this thing about rising food prices?
It used to be $0.10 for one.
Well if she can do 6 smaller ones for a $1 in today's time and age, I don't see why the bigger ones are going at 90 cents each at other stalls.
And that's supposed to be a normal pricing these days.
Don't use the excuse of the price of flour as profit opportunities.
