After this I went to the Colaba Fashion Market where a cluster of more than 300 shops were selling items ranging from key-rings to high-end clothes. The market was bustling with people trying to bargain with the shopkeepers. I bought some stuffs as souvenir from my stay at Mumbai. I had my lunch at the Leopold cafe which was a food lover's paradise.
After being touristy, we headed to Cafe Mondegar just a 5 mins walk from the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. Just as I sipped some chilled beer, I felt like I was in Goa, the way its interior was and the crowd. A must visit place. Try their Chicken Hakka Noodles, Fish Figure, Chilli cheese toast and the amazing caramel custard.

It aimed to create a space to experience and showcase some of the brightest self-made talents of Singapore in art, music, dance, food, film and photography across Mumbai through a 3-day-festival at Sassoon Dock in Colaba.So, now when you are in Singapore, you know where to explore the artist in you, whether it is sitting in cafes or visiting museums. I hope you are going to look out for places mentioned in this article and spread the word about love for art here in Singapore.
