city tour and the movie star life.

Exploring Chinatown.

Today’s orientation activity was a walking tour around central Singapore! My group happened to be designated to be filmed for a welcome video for next year’s incoming exchange students, so this made the tour extra interesting and amusing, as there was a director instructing us on how to act like tourists, while actually in reality we all are tourists. This gave a level of ironic fun to the tour that I feel the other groups probably missed out on 😉 Also, they bought us fresh juice drinks as a thank you, and watermelon juice is ALWAYS a good time.

Anyway, here are some photos of some of the many places and things we saw today!

Today I tried my first fried white carrot cake at the Chinatown hawker centre! This has nothing to do with the stuff we call carrot cake at home – it is actually a delicious sort of omelette made with rice flour and white radishes.

We spent most of our walk today in Chinatown. There are lots of cool lanterns everywhere! I like the way these ones bobble in the wind.

We visited several religious sites today. This is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

After the tour, Migle and I went to Clarke Quay for some ice-cream!

This green tea ice-cream was worth walking on my tired feet an extra 10 or 15 minutes for. Did you ever see such a beautiful ice cream? I think not.

That’s all for now folks! More news soon 🙂 ❤
