Sat evening. Closed. So disappointing. Sadly, all remaining Singapore tradition is being removed peice by piece. Soon the night hawker centre will be a memory only.

I have always loved visiting markets and places where the local people buy food. There is a special atmosphere around such places, they are vivid and colorful. Fresh vegies and fruit, fish and what you can or cannot imagine for your kitchen. They sell clothes suitable for muslim women too. The food in the hawker centre was delicious and cheap.

It's best to buy where locals buy, and this market is no exception. Come with recipes in mind, and you'll leave with full bags. A great way to spend an hour or so.

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colourful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
