My World Tuesday - Kids just want to have fun

Kids just wanna have fun. These kids dont mind getting wet and played in the fountain.
The fountain is located at Bugis Junction. Singapore is a shopping paradise with hundreds of shopping malls and new malls opening every now and then. So it will take a long time before I revisit the same mall. I love to vist new malls with my girlfriends and sometimes we just meet up and try the food at the new eateries at the new malls and catching up with each other.
A short video showing the kids having a great time.

My World Tuesday - Joo Chiat Complex

The Hari Raya Puasa is next month on 10th September 2010.

Every year Geylang Serai will be lighted up to celebrate the occasion. This year the light up will be from 6th August to 10th September 2010.

Even the malls in Geylang Serai are decorated too. Joo Chiat Complex is a very old mall and I used to come here to make/renew my passport when the old immigration department was at Joo Chiat Complex. But now the immigration department has shifted to Lavender Street.







As Geylang Serai used to be a malay village, so the goods sold here are mostly catered to the muslim population.

Fabric Arts Exhibition at Suntec City

Youth Olympic Games is not only on sports, it also about friendship.

Besides the international traditional costumes exhibition that I posted yesterday, there is also the fabric arts exhibition at Suntec City.

The fabric art pieces created by Singapore students to promote cultural exchanges and learning between the students and their international counterparts.




















I enjoyed the art pieces very much. I like the way they used the fabric on the art pieces, very beautiful.

My World Tuesday - Traditional Costumes from round the world

Saw this exhibition on traditional costumes from around the world at Suntec City. The costumes are all so beautiful and colourful. I might have overlook some costumes from some countries cause there were so many of them and I met my cousin and his family at the exhibition. Been too busy chatting with them to concentrate on the details of the exhibition...lol.

For more details of the exhibition, you can visit Mable's Blog for the detailed information.

Some of the traditional costumes wore by Singaporean. Singapore is a multi racial country consisting of the Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasians.



I hope you spot your country's traditional costumes. If not, it could be that I have missed out some of the costumes.

















I hope you enjoy the photos of the beautiful costumes and the fabric as much as I do.
Please visit "That's my World" for other parts of the world.
Tomorrow I will post photos of the fabric exhibition also held at Suntec City. Do return to visit my blog for the beautiful fabric arts.

Suntec City - Travel Fair


Singaporeans love to travel. Travel Fair is always crowded with people.

These people are booking for tours for the year end holidays.
This is just one of the in house travel fair organised by this travel agent. End of August, there will be a major travel fair where all the travel agents will participate and the crowd will be even bigger.
I normally will just get brochures only to see what travel offers they have. I will then check the prices and enquire about the tour in their travel office rather than queue at travel fair. I hate long queues and I normally dont book my travel so many months ahead. I always book only few weeks before for my travel. If it is a nearby country, I will book just a few days before hand.

Sky Watch - City Plaza

Near the Geylang Serai Market, is this very old building called City Plaza. I remembered I used to visit the shopping centre when I was a teenager. Now the shopping centre is very old and not many people visit this mall except Sunday.

The colour of the building really make it stand out of all the buildings in that area.

I went into the mall but it is so different from during its hey day. Gone are all the nice boutique that I used to purchase my clothings from. Some of the clothings in there now are for wholesale and mass produced.

Geylang Serai Market - Food Centre and Shops

On the second storey of the market is the food centre and other shops selling clothes and other household products.

There were so many people in the market and food centre, it was so difficult to capture a shot without people in the background.

When I was there, I had to wait for sometime for a seat to have my lunch.

Clothings,shoes and other household products are so much cheaper in here than in the malls.
Also a great place just to browse around.
