1 pm Lunch: Take a break for lunch and head to China Town or the Maxwell Food Centre. These are open-air eating spaces that have multiple stalls serving classics such as chicken rice and fried oyster omelette or the popular laksa (spicy coconut milk-based noodle soup). If you're looking for something Indian, Singapore’s Indian community makes a roti prata and curries with desi spices, which you can get at the Little India street. Post lunch, you can stroll down the road and shop for spices, fabrics and oils.
Later in the evening I visited China Town. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple was closed by the time I reached (7:00pm). Fortunately, Sri Mariamman Temple was open. There were plenty of goods on display (fixed price) and lanterns swaying in the breeze above my head. I bought fridge magnets- (4 for SGD100) and had stir-fried noodles and 'satay' (barbecued meat skewers) which were lip smacking. There are plenty of places for eating/drinking.
