My Singapore: Little India

May 16, 2012 | Personal, Singapore

If you’re following me on twitter, you may have seen that I decided to go on a solo exploration trip to Little India last week. We’ve been living in Singapore for about 10 months now, and in that time I’ve probably only been to Little India 2 or 3 times, and always for a reason.. never just to wander and explore.

So I took myself and my camera there for the afternoon, and had a wonderful time poking my nose into all the little alleys and shops I found along the way. I’m not normally one to feel completely comfortable with sight-seeing alone, and I did feel a little bit self conscious a few times, but after getting over myself.. it ended up being a wonderful (and strangely liberating) adventure! Here are some of the photos I took :)

What do you think? Should I do more exploration trips around Singapore? There are so many interesting areas here, and I feel like I’ve probably missed some of the coolest parts because I haven’t taken the time to just wander the back streets. I will endeavour to do so more often :)

    just found your blog through a friend! love the photographs, singapore looks so different through your lense! and if you haven’t been, i think the ann siang hill area’s really funky too! haven’t gone in a long while though. rmb to eat at maxwell food centre if you do go! just look for the stalls with the queues (but i think the food centre’s still closed for renovation works)
