Travel Tales - Singapore's Little India

When you go to little India you feel like you are back in Chennai! It's ethnic with beautiful temples and loads of saree shops, you can smell spice and jasmine all around, it's loud with blaring Tamil and Bollywood music, and there's nothing like the energetic street life you see there in the whole of Singapore.

One finds some of the most authentic South Indian eateries here like Anjappar, Komala Vilas, Ananda Bhavan, Sakunthala and a lot more. My recommendation is the Kottu Parotha at Anjappar which I never miss. It means minced parotha and is made using parotha(Indian bread), egg, meat and salna which is a spicy sauce. The main attraction that keeps this area buzzing 365 days and 24/7 is the amazing 24 hour shopping centre Mustafa. You can find everything under the sun here other than real estate and cars. You will be surprised at the kind of deals you can get there. None of my trips are complete without a visit to this place. The closest MRT station to Mustafa is Farrer Road. People looking at converting foreign exchange to Singapore Dollars - no one in the whole of Singapore can give you a better rate than Mustafa!

Our very first destination on the trip was Little India since we had money to exchange and I wanted to take PS to Mustafa and Anjappar. Wearing a comfy white outfit and pairing it with a colourful Quirk Box Ice Cream factory vest to add a pop of colour(you all know how much I love Quirk Box), we set out to start exploring the city of Singapura.
