PhotoHunt theme : Show some circles/ model

Last Sunday, my husband and I enjoyed a leisurely walk through the meandering, bustling streets of Kampong Glam’s conserved area, where the Malay royalty of Singapore once resided.

Though there were many young people checking out the charming lanes and shops, we oldies had an enjoyable time posing for fun photos. Plan to show these photos for our future grandkids. :D

Besides tasting the various delicacies sold at a few cafes and restaurants, we also visited the many small shops that sell everything from Persian carpets, lace, batik, semi-precious stones and an assortment of handicrafts.

Discovered lots of beautiful crockery in this shop. I bought a set of dinnerware and a tea set at a 40% discount. So pleased with my purchases. :)
