Harmony In Singapore
Road-Side Stalls to Hawker Centers

(Picture taken from Wikipedia)

Groooaaannn!I'm Hungry!!! I need food!
Lau Pa Sat or also known as Telok Ayer Market is a very famous and old hawker center or food center was actually a market last time. In Chinese it is known as 老巴刹(old market). I am also very amazed that they could keep it in such a good condition. It has very nice and delicious food and there is a lot of smoke because woks and large fires are used in there! It is clean and it has a variety of stalls there and is well-loved by many... The place is a historic building in Singapore, and is located in Downtown Core within the Central Area, Singapore's central business district(C.B.D). It has a Victorian-like structure and has a distinctive clock tower on the roof which is very beautiful and is also white in colour. The market's unique, octagonal, cast-iron structure is delicate in its execution, and was designed by James MacRitchie. WOW, I wonder how he managed to design such a nice building.
Foodie, Foodie, Food!!! Mmmm...
