death by paper cut

{September 21, 2009}   Picturesque

when i was in melbourne, i took days off just walking around the city and parks and borders of national parks just to walk and take photos. i took that habit back to singapore with me and took in my hot humid strides, the hot humid weather. fortunately for me, i have the geek and visiting friends like cw who do not mind striking it out in the sun and off the beaten track.

last week, cw and i had our fixed of lanes and alleys at little india and chinatown. unfortunately i didn’t have my camera with me that day. we began with lunch at  gurkha palace restaurant, criss crossed all the intersecting streets at little india, got our henna done, took the mrt to chinatown, walked down pagoda street, crossed over to club street to check out books actually and polymath and crust, and finally sauntered to keong saik street for a pit stop at 25 degree celsius.

together with xh 2 days later, we had breakfast at ghim moh market, began our art gallery crawl at dempsey, continued to mica, robertson quay, old school, wessex square village.

and then the next day, we trekked along the southern ridges from clementi woods to harborfront with the geek and company. what a trooper!
