Back to Singapore memories...
Looking at the photos from our Singapore trip back in November I just wish I could be here right now. I am quite happy with the way the colours came up on the film shots, I have not edited them except I did cropping on a few of them. The light was just perfect I think, and oh everywhere I looked I had to snap!
The first 3 photos are from Ann Siang Hill where our dear friend Ros took us around to (thank you Ros!). This area had a really lovely atmosphere with many nice looking shops and eateries, I would love to go back and do more exploration in Ann Siang Hill next time. Ros showed us this beautiful and quaint building with amazing mosaic work on the facade that belongs to her grandparents where she spent many weekends in her childhood days. Ros told us a little history of her family which is very interesting and I imagined the time she grew up and spent as a teenager in Singapore before she came to Tokyo 10 years ago. Very special.
From the 4th photo and below are from the Joo Chiat and around, Ros recommended this are so we took the MRT to the nearest station (which was far) and tried to walk to Joo Chiat. Without wi-fi and google map we walked up and down many directions but wondering around this residential neighbourhood was very enjoyable. Finding the street full of beautiful pastel coloured Peranakan houses after a long wondering around was a real joy! I wish I could live in one of them.... I am always fascinated by things old and beautiful with history especially interior and architecture related and it was very nice to find those things in Singapore. It was actually a little bit of a surprise to me, a good surprise, since I had imagined scenes of Singapore to be of pretty much just a modern high-rise city. But wow there are so many lovely neighbourhoods of the kinds that I love and wish to live in! I'm sure there would be lots more that I didn't get to see of course!
