    Saturday morning walk Kallang to Chinatown

    Good evening.

    I'm on a bit of a health kick at the moment and trying to lose a few kgs so I've taken to doing a bit of walking.

    On Saturday morning for some reason I woke up too early so decided to walk to Chinatown, starting off at Kallang. It's about a 6.5 km walk.

    I left around 0700 walked to Maxwell Market, had some chicken porridge and a lime juice for brekkie, then going into Chinatown, which was fairly quiet considering Chinese New Year is just around the corner, but I guess I was a bit early. There were still long queues at the shops selling bak kwa (a festive food - a kind of bbq pork).

    Anyway I took some pics along the way and thought I would share them here.










































    And then I took the MRT back home.

    Looks good.

    Must have been very early because the rat is still asleep.

    Nice pics Fatty. To bad hotels are so expensive these days, I do like Singapore.

    The zoo is a burster.

    Great slice of Singapore. Especially liked the musician sitting on the concrete block.

    I prefer the evenings Jeff.

    Nice pics, fatboy, so this is Chinatown Singapore, right, that's why I didn't recognise anything...

    Great pics - Thank you for sharing.

    It's amazing how clean the streets are particularly compared to when you'll be residing in Thailand. (Now I can begin to understand as to why you're building a wall around your property.)

    Congratulations and best wishes to and your wife on your latest addition.

    Well you did better than me. I live in Jurong East and stirred my ass on the third day of the public holiday to go and have a Chinese "reflexology" foot / leg massage from a diminutive lady who must be a blacksmith in her spare time. Very good massage, that is if you like pain inflicted by an attractive Chinese broad with muscle tone in her arms that any man would have been proud to have.
