A morning in Chinatown

Last month I had the good fortune to win a competition from a local magazine (the Singapore edition of Cosmopolitan) for a ‘pick-me-up’ facial at a spa near Chinatown.  I went for it last week and afterwards had a wander around the not-so-touristy part.  I somehow lost half of my photos from the trip while transferring them (arrrgh) so here’s the few that were left.

palm trees in garden Singapore

love the palms in this garden

old house Chinatown Singapore

a ‘theatre’ style house

street scene Chinatown

can you see the metal man sign?

Peranakan style house Singapore

and pretty colours again

After walking around in the mid-day sun (mad dogs and englishmen!) I definitely needed another ‘pick-me-up’ facial!

    I just love seeing your photos of Singapore. It looks like a place I’d like to visit someday. I hope your facial didn’t completely go to waste. 🙂

I would love to hear your thoughts...
