On the third day of Chinese New Year, it is the tradition not to go visiting because it is said that whoever you visit will become your enemy. So, it was a jolly good excuse to go gallivanting on our own starting the day with breakfast at Maxwell Food Centre and ending at NEX, the latest addition to our shopping mall list.
While waiting for the food to arrive, I took these shots of my surroundings.
Tea for two.
People's homes have turned into offices and pubs.
Singapore has many interesting buildings that are well-preserved like these.
The now defunct food street was once next to this building,
It's so nice not having tall buildings looming behind a historical one.
Facade of the Mica Building.
The Central Fire Station now a Civil Defence museum.
End of a row of shophouses next to the Perankan Museum.
Old buildings where second-hand car dealers set up shop. I am not sure if they are still there. Anyway, we parked our car at the carpark here and took a train on the North-East Line to Serangoon station.
For the first time I could see through all the carriages of our MRT Trains.
The interior of NEX, our newest Shopping Centre in Serangoon. There were many complaints about the entrance to the building from the carpark, the carpark itself and of course the traffic jams getting into the building on weekends. We avoided all the hassle by taking a train there. Do the same if you are going.
