The Magical Colors of Singapore’s Haji Lane


There is no such thing as graffiti on this side of the planet.  But the sad thing is, I love graffiti and am such a huge fan of Keith Harring and any random artist that can make a funky, colorful wall/lamp post/bench.

It’s always nice to have an element of quirky even in the most mundane of things.

Though many places in Singapore glistens with steel and glass all assembled into architectural marvels, I still prefer heading over to the well-preserved communities and shop houses of the city.

As I was organizing my files just this weekend, I chanced upon a photo of my foavorite artsy hub in Singapore: Haji Lane. 

Cherie Altea Bitanga
Cherie Altea Bitanga finds herself constantly making food, talking about food and around people who know food. Her daily adventures go beyond her own kitchen in Singapore, spanning from the nondescript holes-in-the-wall to sumptuous dining adventures. She believes in the art of slow food and scours places in hopes of bringing home unique spices, salts and oils. She is also the occasional artist and food writer who learned how to cook early in life by inheriting culinary family traditions from her motherland: the Philippines.

For over a decade, this blogger's career as an ESL instructor provided a multicultural atmosphere working with diplomats, celebrities, nuns, priests, politicians as well as high school and college students from all over the world. When she grows up, she hopes to cook for a living to celebrate her family's culinary legacy.
