Today Matt and I had the rare experience of a Saturday with absolutely no children around. Kit and Ella had taken themselves off to visit friends, Remi was trying to make plans and Oscar was doing his usual Saturday Rugby-a-thon with coaching in the morning and a game in the afternoon.
So I took Matt off to Little India. I forget that even though I am getting out and about, he really doesn't often get to see much outside the CBD (China town - where I haven't been yet). Considering that we are only 6 bus stops from Little India, we thought at the very least we would go and have lunch.
Which we did, and then walked around for ages. I think the best parts of Little India are off the main drag, when you get into all the little side streets. I am so in love with these old shop houses. It makes me so happy when I see them. I would prefer these to a shiny big air conditioned mall any day, although obviously I see their limitation in terms of being places of business.
Deepavali and Serangoon Rd is decked out in these fantastic decorations going all the way up. It didn't capture on the iphone, but they really glow all the way up the street.
