Photowalking in Singapore

Here are some of the best spots in the Lion City where shutterbugs like you can feast your eyes—and camera—on. So get yourself in your street-suave outfit, charge your camera’s batteries, and head out to these following places suggested by professional photographers Mark Teo, Benny Hoh, and Lester Ledesma.

Kampong Buangkok – Your photowalking experience can even be greater when you immerse yourself in the rural. Kampong Buangkok is a traditional village you won’t find on a local map. Wooden houses, chickens under banana trees, and other typical scenes of everyday life in the rural areas are what you can highlight in your photographs.

Punggol – Landscape photography buffs are sure to enjoy what Punggol has to offer. It is an undeveloped shore where you can see for yourself the simple beauty of nature. You’ll be inspired even more to take photos of it to show to those who are jaded with the city’s skyscrapers.

Little India – During your photowalk, don’t miss out on the streets. From here you can take pretty great snapshots of the hustle and bustle of the city. If you’re heading out for a photowalk on a Sunday, you can get inspiration from Little India as this is the day when the area throbs with much activity.

Chinatown – If you want to capture Singapore during its old times, Chinatown should be part of your itinerary. There is just a spectrum of fascinating things that you might want to capture through your camera lens. Chinatown is definitely a visual feast—old-style.

West Coast Park Beach – Onto the wild with another good destination for photowalks—West Coast Park Beach! You might want to end your long day with a perfect shot of the breathtaking sunset. Everything in the surroundings can also make for an enthralling silhouette in your photographs.

Experience Fine Dining In Peranakan Way

If you want to experience fine dining in a Peranakan way, head to “The Blue Ginger” restaurant. The moment you enter the place, you’ll be welcomed with Nyonya– inspired ambiance decorated with traditional eye catching ornaments fused with modern artistic paintings all wrapped up in a brown-cream interiors.

The 13-year-old restaurant is known for their delectable cuisines that are greatly influenced by  peranakan-culture. Feast on their richly flavoured dishes like the Bakwan Kepting, a popular recipe of minced crabmeat and pork moulded into meatballs that goes together with pork broth and bamboo shoots. The meat is carefully cooked to achieve perfect texture and preserve the flavour.

The standard of being a true Peranakan diner is the presence of traditional Peranakan cuisines. Take a bite of The Blue Ginger’s version of Ngo Heong. Their own style of this mainstream Peranakan dish will certainly authenticate their legitimacy as a true blue Peranakan diner. The Ngo Heong is a traditional dish of deep fried prawns and pork rolls flavoured with five-spice powder. The rolls are served with sweet dark soya sauce to add more sophistication to its appetizing aroma and crunchy texture.

And to top it all off, treat yourself to an ultimate culinary experience, and savour the scrumptiousness of Blue Ginger’s Ayam Panggang. Ayam Panggang is the restaurant’s speciality dish that has received excellent reviews from both magazine writers and patrons. This dish is a marinated chicken thigh in coconut milk seasoned with exotic spices and grilled over for a succulent and tasty finish. It is indeed one of their sought after dishes that never fail to impress.

The Blue Ginger restaurant is primarily created to share the unique Peranakan culture to others by serving only the finest dishes that would bring the entire family together.
