As most of you already know, condition of our tourist visa in Australia is to travel outside Australia every 3 months. The time to “get out” came and we decided to experience one of the busiest cities in the world – Singapore.

The time of our visit was just perfect. Durian, the “king of fruit”, was in season. And as we both love this fruit, together with other tropical fruit which is not available/very expensive in Australia, we were heading to the markets straight from airport. 🙂

After durian and lot of curious and smiley looks from locals, was time to explore the rest of the market. These rice muffins really caught my attention. Later on I saw them as a part of some religion ritual and in a lot of different colours, so I’m unsure if it’s edible? 🙂

From Tanah Merah markets we walked to Geylang, suburb where we stayed. We saw some Ramadan celebrations, mainly stalls with fried food and carpenters stalls.

Next day we went to Little India, which is suburb full of indian restaurants and their shops. We tried southern indian cuisine and it was freaking delicious! We also checked out some of their sweets(Tomino fell in love with Mysore Pak). 🙂

After indian food we headed to Orchid road – main shopping road in Singapore. If you wonder where most of young Singaporeans spend their days off (and money) 🙂 this is definitely the place. One shopping mall after another, in length of about 2km. Crazy. At least for us, nature lovers :). We finished the day at Bugis street, where we knew was durian fest. It was super crowded and super expensive. We were happy to go back to our relatively quiet neighbourhood and have some rest.

Jak vetsina z vas uz vi, podminka nasich turistickych viz v Australii je kazdy 3 mesice opustit zemi. Nas cas nadesel a my se rozhodli navstivit jedno z nejrusnejsich velkomest na svete – Singapore.

Casovani nasi navstevy bylo perfektni – zrovna byl v sezone “kral ovoce” durian. A protoze oba tohle ovoce spolecne s dalsim tropickym ovocem milujeme, nase prvni zastavka po priletu byla jasna – ovocne trhy :).

Po snezeni durianu a zvidavych pohledu mistnich jsme se sli porozhlidnout po stancich s jidlem. Moji pozornost mimo jine upoutaly tyto ryzove mufiny, ktere jsem pozdeji hojne videla jako soucast nejakeho nabozenskeho ritualu. Maji ruzne barvy a velikosti a nejsem si teda jista jestli to nekdo ji? 🙂

Po ceste do hotelu jsme narazili na dalsi jidlo – hlavne smazeny. Nedavno skoncil Ramadan (pust) a oslavy zrejme byly stale v plnem proudu. Mimo jidla se tu ve velkym prodavaly koberce :).

Druhy den jsme se vydali do male Indie, indicke ctvrti jak se patri. Ochutnali jsme kuchyn jizni Indie, po ktery se jeste ted olizujeme  a taky jsme omrkli jejich sladkosti(Tomino si zamiloval Mysore Pak). Zlato ani dalsi stanky s cetkama nas nezaujaly.

Pote jsme se vydali do nakupniho silenstvi na Orchid road. Je to ulice, kde je jeden obchodak vedle druhyho a minimalne pulka mesta tam travi svuj volny cas utracenim penez 🙂 – hlavne ta mladsi generace. Cely se to tahne asi 2km a zkratka je to hukot! Odtud jsme pokracovali na Bugis street, kde se mel konat durianovy festival. Ten se sice konal, ale byly tam sileny fronty a bylo to predrazeny. Vubec nam to nevadilo, byli jsme radi, ze se muzeme vratit do hotelu. Na jeden den az az ;).
