I love anything colourful and this installation art in Little India caught my eye ๐Ÿ˜Š I also like its simplicity - the umbrellas represent the shade provided by trees, which is so important for us in Singapore, where we experience loads of sunshine (and rain) all year round. So grateful to live in this "city in a garden"! ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ

Chinese chess games are a common pastime in Chinatown...I came across this eye catching mural, "Chess Mates", in Banda Street. Sure enough, just around the corner, there was a chess match taking place at Kreta Ayer Square. Judging by the number of onlookers, the competition was quite intense !

Tucked away in a quiet street in the bustling area of Chinatown is this poetically titled mural "Path to Peace & Serenity". It's one of 13 murals of the 'Colouring Banda Street' project, which involved 600 volunteers & residents working over 6 months to turn the plain, white walls of the area to scenes of Singapore's pioneer generation, many of whom are living in Chinatown.
Pause and take a closer look at this mural and you'll notice a winding flower-lined path leading to a waterfall and a guesthouse. The deeper meaning? Aging gracefully, staying active and being close to nature ๐Ÿ˜

I've always been intrigued by the unique design of the century-old Abdul Gaffoor Mosque in Little India. Its unusual blend of Moorish and classical Western designs really sets it apart from other mosques in Singapore. There are Roman-style columns inside and outside the building, and above the entrance is another special feature: a sundial that emits 25 rays of the sun decorated in Arabic calligraphy ๐Ÿ˜

Be sure to look up โ˜๏ธwhen youโ€™re next at the Thian Hock Keng temple in Chinatown - thereโ€™s so much intricate and beautiful detailing near the ceiling that will enchant you. This is a classic characteristic of Minan (Southern Chinese) temple architecture ๐Ÿ˜

The Sri Veeramakaliamman Templeโ€™s ornate doors are an invitation to Hindu devotees to step into the divine. And as worshippers enter the temple, theyโ€™ll take a moment to ring these golden bells, which produce the auspicious sound of โ€œOmโ€ ๐Ÿ•‰

A pair of lions guards the entrance of Thian Hock Keng, Chinatown's very own temple of heavenly happiness, and Singapore's oldest Taoist temple. This one is the female lion - you can tell by the little cub near its paw ๐Ÿ˜
