I thought a glimpse of Little India would spice daughter's first taste of Singapore, also we needed to buy her lil' sis a gadget which a friend suggested to buy somewhere here cos its cheaper. I also thought my previous visit of this ethnic neighborhood was still fresh ( here ), so I went out of my comfort zone ( of always accompanied by my Sg expat/host best friend ) to commute alone with my daughter.
Which I guess what brought us to some outskirts of the neighborhood. In good fate actually, cos we were able to see more of this district than I did last year.
shining.shimmering... flabby arms :)))
If only we had more time, I'd like to try this resto which looked like serving authentic Indian cuisine. I peeked inside and it was jampacked with locals and tourists. It was with regret that we hadn't.
Until we found our way to Sim Lim Square.
It's a five storey gadgets mall. Cameras, phones, ipods. .anything mobile and current gadgets could be bought there. We stepped-out of the mall as quickly as we stepped-in, without a single purchase. Daughter and I felt overwhelmed by the massive selections and intimidated by the aggressive local male vendors of the shops.
That ended our Little India walk. After which we went straight to the China Town here and here.
Later that same day was our departure from Sg, bak to my beloved country. In the airport, I looked around at the Duty Free shops and luckily...
we found a shop that had Sony Walkman in the shelves, exactly what my youngest daughter (at home) was asking for a take home from Singapore.
I took out every single Sg dollar left in my wallet and bought it. Daughter was ecstatic when she received it.
