Thanks to all your lovely encouragement from my Little India post, I’m back with another back-streets photo tour.. this time in Geylang. I was lucky enough to be accompanied by a friend on this trip (who’s name is also Claire), and together we explored the back streets of Singapore’s main red light district.
Might sound like a bit of a strange place to want to hang out, I know, but actually during the day I wouldn’t have even suspected that’s what the area is famous for if I hadn’t already read about it. Mostly it just felt like a colourful residential area, with lots of bustling shops and restaurants (also what Geylang is known for), and maybe a slightly higher than average number of hotels. ;)
Along the way we stumbled upon the most incredible steam bun place, and after watching them being made decided to give one a go. WHOA. I still have no clue what we actually got (bit of a communication break-down there) but it was one of the best steamed buns I’ve ever had! In the middle was some pork (you can see that in the photo above), but in the middle of the pork was an egg which came as a surprise to both of us as we chowed down into our buns.. oh it was sooooo gooooood.
