Hawker Center Eats

I spent a week in Singapore. This time around, I focused on work. I mean focus focused. I barely had time to visit friends let alone venture out. The heat didn’t help encouraging me to explore.

Weary-Eyed Wanderings

And even though this was my first time to Singapore, I guess I would be more shocked if they didn’t have those shops here. What I didn’t prepare for were the different types of people. All I wanted to do was get to my hotel. After getting some cash I head to the MRT which had a stop…
