When we were in Tekka Place in Little India, I found these walls covered with details of Old School games of Singapore. Not only the walls, but the floor area also allows children to play some of the games such as Airplane chess.
Though I planned to write another post for this week, last week suddenly my phone was faulty. I couldn’t switch on it after it suddenly appear with a black screen. That doesn’t impact me much negatively as I mostly use the phone for calls, messages, checking emails, and photos only. I found that I could stay away without a phone but I still wanted a phone to call my husband, parents, and family members. On the other hand, my photos on the phone! I wanted to download the latest photos to the laptop and I couldn’t. Finally, I couldn’t write a blog post for this week until today. Anyway, during the weekend, I bought a new phone too! 🙂
Thanks ladies for sharing your thoughts, experiences, and advice on my son’s drawings when I shared a post asking about observational drawings. I got my doubts cleared and I believe my son will enhance his drawing skills in his way. He happily draws when he is at home after the school.
These photos are from Tekka Place which is a shopping mall in Little India, Singapore. I found simply this shopping mall is a place that preserves art and culture. I found that there are art and crafts shops in Tekka Place and I enjoy my time looking at the artistic creativity while I am there.
I don’t write about old school games of Singapore simply these photos explain that all. Not only Singapore, but these traditional games are also popular and common in most Asian countries.
Every time we visit this shopping mall, my son doesn’t forget to go to this place and run around and play at least for a few minutes.
I also like the wall and floor designs of this mall. Those are with random tile designs. And, I captured another photo of a green wall. But, it was done with artificial plants. Though I admire natural green walls, I found this artificial green wall is beautiful too. So I have photos for the blog.
Singapore Food: Appam (Hoppers)
When we are in Little India, we don’t forget to taste these delicious appams. On this day too, we had appam and I could capture a photo. Appam is a kind of lacy pancake. It is a food that originated in South India. It is popular in Singapore and is mostly served with sugar and fresh coconut. But, Appam is one of the Sri Lankan snacks too. In Sri Lanka, we eat Appam with a curry or chili paste because of our spicy taste buds. 🙂 Anyway, though it is served with sugar in Singapore, we also buy a curry to match our taste. A tea (Teh Tarik) with this meal satisfies our taste buds! 🙂
Now it is your turn. Do you like old-school games? What traditional games did you play as a child? Do you like to share such memories with us? Please share your thoughts.
