Lau Pa Sat

Lau Pa Sat

Saturday, 23. January 2015

Hosting family members is a great thing, yet kind of stressful too 😉 Showing them around the city and letting them taste the delicious food Singapore has to offer, we ended up at Lau Pa Sat, one of the most famouse hawker center in town.

Originally built in the 19th century as a wet maket (Telok Ayer Market), Lau Pa Sat has been converted into a hawker center. One can enjoy both local and Asian food. You can find the place in the midst of Singapore´s Central Business District. Unfortunatly, its recent restoration took quite a bit of charm and cosiness away. Nevertheless, it is still a place you must have seen while staying in Singapore.

One of the high lights is the satay street which only´s set up from 7pm onwards. That was our dining place. Surrounded by skyscrapers and the smell of smoke from grilling meet and prawns, we enjoyed our Satays.

If you have the opportunity, go there, have a try and let me know how you like it…Lau Pa Sat

Toa Payoh

Toa Payoh

In approximately 5 1/2 months I leave Singapore for good. Due to this fact, I decided using weekends to go places I haven´t seen yet.

Toa Payoh wasn´t exactly planned. I happend to end up there accidentally. Just hopped off MRT and there I was.

I strolled around Toa Payoh Mall, took pictures and observed the ado. It was a quite and relaxing atmosphere. I might go back there to see the town park I hadn´t time to visit.

 

“Elfchen”

“Elfchen”

In German this is called an „Elfchen“. I´m not sure if there is an equal poem in English. I couldn´t find any examples.

It is called „Elfchen“ because it is made up of eleven words.

Line 1 starts with a noun. (1 word)

Line 2 describes the first word. (2 words)

Line 3 answers how the first word is or where it comes from. (3 words)

Line 4 tells your own opinion about the first word. (4 words)

Line 5 is the conclusion of the whole „Elfchen“. (1 word)
