I love Chinatown. When I was young, I used to think it was tacky, meant for grandmas and grandpas... but after awhile you start to appreciate the old things or in my words: "Chinatown is soo ghetto, so close to the heart"... I don't not appreciate modernization sometimes cause it can get pretty in-your-face and you lose tradition and culture.

So anyways my parents, cousin and I went for dimsum at Yum Cha in Chinatown, following which a little visit to the Buddha tooth Relic temple. Yesh, that's right, you read it right.. Buddha's tooth. It's actually just a replica, saw the real one up close in Bangkok, which they had moved from China for a visit of sorts. I didn't really like the temple. To me, it should have been way more modest, but I guess it didn't matter when tourists were concern.

Anyways, the green shawl you see was loaned by the temple cause you can't wear anything sleeveless. I thought it looked pretty fetching in the end. LOL. The shoes were totally random. Just wanted to wear my mum's keds for the sake of wearing them. They are sooo uber comfy and only cost 30SGD. Like hello..... cheap much?

The weekend is HERE... !! So yer all have a LOVELY TIME, yer hear!?
