Beautiful Back Alley

I don’t know why but I love exploring back alleys. Perhaps because it’s not a common sight in Singapore. Here, housing estates get painted every few years, and there are constant renovations going on… While these are good, sometimes I wish some places are left as it is, so that they will mature.

Deepavali Decorations

I really love this place…it’s my favourite place to be in Singapore ;) Look closely and you’ll see a note on the right, it says “DON’T SMELL THE FLOWERS. THANK YOU”.
