So, shopping and more shopping. The Hari Raya celebration, too, was all about shopping. Geylang Serai last night was basically a big clearance sale. It was wall-to-wall people and nearly impossible to get around.
Crossing a street during a break in auto traffic was a bit like walking into heavy surf or an epic battle scene from Braveheart or Troy or [pick your favorite ancient period piece]. We’d watch people gather on the other side of the intersection, facing us, and then suddenly traffic would stop and the two opposing crowds would surge toward each other. We bailed, but not before having a thai coconut.
We headed to Boat Quay for a few beers and finished our evening on Mohammed Sultan after a few more.
