From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur ;)

Last day in Singapore – first day/evening in KL…

Starting the day with breakfast at Toast Box. I really love Toast Box. I don’t know why, but I just love it.

And that was the moment I felt, that I didn’t want to leave this place 😦

We went to Sri Krishnan Temple for a friday pooja, before taking the flight from Changi Airport to KL.

In KL we quickly checked in at Verdant Hill Hotel, took a Grab to Jalan Masjid India for some vegetarian dinner. This area looks so creepy, and the people living there also told us to stay away from that place. We quickly went for some shopping, and never came back. Haha.

Here, masala thosai at Sangeetha Vegetarian Restaurant. I guess it’s the same branch as the Sangeetha restaurants in Tamil Nadu. But the food was absolutely good, and with good service.

We went for a quick shopping at Ajuntha Textiles. Bought some panjabis, sarees, vaeddis and some small kitchen stuff.

I must tell you, I already felt uneasy in KL, and was not super happy. Felt that Singapore is far better, and I still have that feeling. We talked with several tamil people in KL, that could tell us about high level discrimination 😦 So sad…

Note: When in KL, I highly recommend you to use Grab for transport. DON’T go for the local taxis. And beware of thieves everywhere!

Little India, Singapore

The 4th day was mostly spent on shopping in Little India, and we were happy about this decision. I was curious to visit Little India again after 20 years, and I was a bit shocked to see how much it has changed. I remebered Little India as a nice and neat place, but this is not the reality anymore! The small streets with small shops reminds pretty much of the terrible streets of India, unfortunately. But you have to experience it 😉

We started the day with breakfast at Kith Cafe, nearby our hotel at Bencoolen St., and then took the MRT from Bencoolen to Jalan Besar, and from here we walked through Veerasamy Rd. to Serangoon Rd. It was funny how I still remember the route, though I was only 10 years old back then 😛 Continue reading “Little India, Singapore”
