All sorts of eateries – it seems to me the place to come for authentic food, at an affordable price.

I hope those windows stained green, never disappear.

    I like the joo chiat area, but don’t really know what to make of it. I wish it were a long stretch of nice cafes I would like to visit, but they are just dotted around. Then there are some shops selling tyres and the like, the type of shop you would never walk into. And yes, Joo Chiat somehow feels hotter than elsewhere….

    I love how you take time to appreciate the beauty in everything you see. I’ve been to Joo Chiat so many times but never explored it the way that you do. You really do have an amazing eye for details!
    And I know where Chilli Padi restaurant is now.. thanks to this! Heard the food is good.. 😉

    They are probably thinking that you are a spy, trying to copy their products…
