|east coast is where we're going...|
east coast of Singapore is home to a variety of treats... great coffee shops,
great food, more wide open spaces, many pubs... we will be moving to the
east coast soon. the company i work for has a new building near the expo
and so, "go east" we go.
Jet and I were at the Expo early in the morning for a Book Sale.
In the afternoon, we push through some parts of the east coast in a binge of eating. hehehe... great day really. we were with a friend, antonia. a true blue east coast singaporean.
later in the day, we were joined by sharon - one of antonia's friends and we had a great time till late in the evening.
Confectionery and Bakery, more fondly known as "Red House".
It is a no brainer as it is the only red colored house along the east coast
Founded is 1925, it is one of the oldest coffee shops in the island. Very famous for it's famous curry puffs, bean paste buns, and Swiss rolls. I tried the ice coffee and it was really great - especially after a long walk under the hot and humid singapore sun. Inside the shop is a throwback to days when the best thing to do was sip coffee on a saturday afternoon.
|waiting for a friend outide the expo hall. the east coast is a very interesting place. it is a mix of the traditional and the new. the row of old houses on the right represent the old singapore.|
antonia and sharon...sharing a joke in a bust stop somewhere along the east
coast road. it was late into the day and with the setting sun, it
was a great time to go around and explore.
jet and antonia in the right picture... i think this is somewhere outside a row of cute houses.
it was a great day and we both had a lot of fun. singapore is really great because it offers a number of these very interesting places - especially in the east coast.
|walking the streets or waiting for a bus... everywhere in singapore's east coast is an experience...|
|happy singapore national day banner and jet's joining in the celebration. albeit, a few days late. hehehe...|
