I am a coffee and wine drinker but this workshop was still very interesting and fun. The teacher was very engaging, knowledgeable and made the workshop very interesting. I would definitely bring my family and friends over to see this workshop when they visit Singapore.

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its

Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
