It was opened in 1934 and used to house the police station. It’s located at the junction of Hill Street, hence it’s also now known as the Old Hill Street Police Station.
Behind it, is Clarke Quay, the hip riverside area with its painted shophouses, filled with lively bars and restaurants. A short bus ride down the road from the MICA building, took us to the bright colours of Singapore’s Little India in Serangoon road.
Such bold use of vibrant colours that seem to fit well together.
They are I believe, commonly used in Hindu weddings, where the bride and groom exchange garlands in the ceremony.
Probably not, but then again, this looks perfectly at home in the tropical climes of Singapore’s Little India. Talking about Tropical climate, check out this beautiful green foliage all over Singapore.
In fact, this is at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa resort and spa where I stayed with the family for a few nights.
If you are travelling to Singapore with young children, I can highly recommend this hotel.
They have thought of everything to accommodate the needs of little ones, from kid sized bathing robes, kids’ slippers, to pull out beds, climbing stools,life guards at the pool, kids’ restaurants and special play areas. The list could go on and on. Anyway, I managed to capture some of the colourful food at this wonderful hotel too.
These are called kuih, traditional desserts commonly eaten in Malaysia and Singapore. Often they are sweet, sometimes savoury and mostly made of a fine glutinous rice. This bright yellow wall at Rasa Sentosa certainly did not escape my attention. It belonged to the hotel’s delicious noodle bar. In fact, not only is the Rasa Sentosa incredibly family friendly, we got quite a gastronomic experience there too with 5 different eateries.
Check out the Indian lunch buffet above with its beautiful Copper serving pots and lamps. This outdoor space at the Rasa Sentosa was a delight to walk through. Vegetables, fruits and herbs thrived beautifully.
I simply had to capture the pops of red and yellow on those cacti.
I love how Singapore is preserving the old colonial shop house architecture. Even better when they are painted in colourful hues don’t you think? Hope you have enjoyed seeing the colourful side of Singapore that I have found. wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead.
