A visit to Singapore Little India on a Sunday afternoon will surely make up for all the time spent quietly thinking of things to do.

It is one of Singapore busiest place, a home away from home for many foreign workers, a place to ran errands or to meet with friends.

It is a vibrant, colorful neighborhood of refurbished shop houses with ground floor mainly used as retail stores, not to mention the district boast the 24-hours open Mustafa Center with prices usually cheaper than most parts in Singapore.

There are a lot of colorful, interesting to see and so far my discoveries are kind of quirky in a sense- a box of floppy disks on the floor and a glass box filled with unused 35mm films.

Apart from visiting Little India, I visited the neighborhood of Joo Chiat/Katong too.

The Joo Chiat District is home to Peranakans, descendants of Chinese and Indian immigrants who married Muslims from Malay archipelago.

Unfortunately my visit to Joo Chiat was on a long weekend holiday and most of the local coffee shops and restaurants often with long queue were closed. All was there was empty streets.
