What to do on a Sunday

The SITEX fair is on again this weekend and the hordes will be flocking to the Expo Convention Hall to buy, buy and buy - pcs, laptops, printers, handphones etc etc. There are other fun things to do if you have nothing to buy at the fair this time round. First, you could lunch at the food court at Raffles City. Try this bamboo steamed rice topped with delicious minced meat and try the chicken ginseng soup.
Head towards the exit to Bras Basah Road and find your way to SMU (Singapore Management University) Concourse where there is a Peranakan Festival going on. It ends at six and tomorrow is the last day. In the afternoon we enjoyed a fantastic Peranakan performance of songs and dances that got people doing the joget and clapping along with the music. See nonyas decked out in authentic Peranakan sarongs and kebayas and if you want to shop, you will not be disappointed as there are stalls selling genuine Peranakan clothing and beaded slippers and jewellery too. On top of that, there are food stalls selling traditional Peranakan dishes.
This year's Christmas lights at Orchard Road are really magical. Go!

Hey Mable, Thanks for the info. on the Peranakan Festival. I doubt I got time to visit. Already got a new camera at SITEX yesterday and today got a notebook for You are right about the price being so cheap and reasonable. Very worth. I am going to Cambodia next week only to Phnom Penh City but no time to go to Angkor Wat. Tell you more when I return with more photos. :) Hope you have a great time taking more photos of flowers. :)
