A week in Singapore 5


A look at this week in sunny Singapore.

First photo taken while on the train, also known as the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit).

One thing that is different in Singapore compared to Japan is it’s actually noisy on the trains because people do talk and chat on their phones. It’s ‘rude’ in Japan to talk on your phone while on the train but it doesn’t apply here.

And there are those who do blast their music on the trains here…


Some Lor Mee for lunch. Lor Mee‘s a noodle dish served in thick dark starchy gravy with thick flat yellow noodles. Ingredients usually include, fish meat, pork, ngo hiang (A hokkien dish), half a boiled egg etc. Vinegar is added to give it a slightly sour taste, and pepper as topping.

This one’s from the famous stall along Amoy Street’s foodcourt, reputed to be the best in the city.


Some Crispy noodles for lunch. I don’t know the exact name for it.

It is basically deep fried noodles, with gravy poured over it to soften the noodles after some time. Vegetables, meat and seafood added in as well.


A shop display with Domo-kun, the famous NHK mascot. I remember searching Akihabara and Ikebokuro for Domo-kun’s goods, only to find a small section of it in Animate ORZ


Leaning tower of the ‘eyes’.


A film crew doing a shoot. I seldom see film crews around. How is it like in your region? Saw lots of photo crews in Japan though.


Some Japanese food for dinner. Tasted horrible though…


At a friend’s place for BBQ. It’s pretty common to have BBQs in Singapore. I  usually go if there’s sambal stingray on the list ^^;


A friend of mine who has 3 monitors on his desktop. The larger ones are 30" monitors. Not too sure about the size of the one on the left. Great if you have HD movies or lots of videos for dolphin care.


On the way home. Look, no hands!


Some butter prawns for dinner…


And Chilli crabs as well. But I prefer..


Steamed crabs as you get to taste the crab meat more than the chilli.


Walking around town to get inspiration for the SYPA competition.


Visiting the National Library.


Shot of the afternoon sky. It’s always cloudy in Singapore.


Some mango cake at a party. Yummy.


Some guy making Takoyaki.


Great idea to use mannequins to pose instead of having them stand by the shop front. You can feel them up instead if you want too…


Ero Lingerie.


A overhead shot of the Pasar Malam that was near by place. They seem to come by every quarter of the year.


Ending the post with a sunset view.

  1. Looks like you had a fun week!!! Wish my week was pretty cool. Still, those food you had looks pretty good….
    BBQ is common in Singapore. Wow, I wish it was common here. It’s only common when it’s around the summer time when there is no rain or snow.
    There was once a film crew new my house for some movie. Sadly, I didn’t know what movie they were shooting.
    People here in Toronto who takes the subway are usually quite or listening to music or talking to each other. It doesn’t get real loud here. It okay I guess.

  2. Thanks for sharing the photographs.

    Ah I never knew that Singapore had such beautiful skies. I should make it a habit to look at the skies at times. :)

  3. That photo of the Japanese dinner looks like one of the products from a certain food chain here…Can’t seem to remember the name, through.

    @Hyn: Yup, you should. I once saw a sunset so vividly red that it painted the entire sky crimson. Even the very air I breathed had a particular crimson hue to it. It was surreal, I tell you. Just beautiful. Pity I didn’t have a camera with me at the time.

  4. @Rin: BBQ is common here because it’s always summer all year round and we have no snow here ^^

    @Hynavian: No worries :)

    @Stifler: Yup, it’s from a certain food chain.
    The sunset here is pretty nice actually.

    @Destiny: Hope you don’t drool on your keyboard! The trains run at a maximum of 80km/h… or so I read.

    @Coco the Bean: No hands is good. I like the last shot as well. Printed it out on a photo paper ^^

    @godslayer: LOL! I did think so when I first saw them on display

  5. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation however
    I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I believe I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I am looking ahead to your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
