Today is my last day in this wonderful city. I wish to thank my Ate Jopie for making this trip possible, and for her tireless enthusiasm in bringing me around Singapore. I wish to thank her husband, Kuya Josef Leitgeb, for letting me stay at their wonderful home at Trevose Crescent.

I also wish to thank all the wonderful kababayans who warmly welcomed me here, specifically Ate Baby Gaynor Repayo, her daughter Bibi, Ate Miles Tupas, members of Southeast Asian Baptist Church, Ate Suzette Leupi and her son Dylan, and my very good friend Mariel Santos. I bring with me many memories of this city, the stories that our countrymen have to tell (including some amusing and sad ones by Singaporean taxi drivers), and the hope to return again some day. Maraming salamat po! Hope to see you all again soon!

Mabuhay!


The MRT station at Chinatown.


An overview of the area.


The Majestic! Actresses and performers from Beijing and Shanghai used to come here.

Detail. Dragon mosaic on the sides of the theatre.


The Majestic is now a mall. Oh look, Philippine mangoes! Our mangoes are everywhere here. Those from Malaysia kasi are maasim and taste funny.


My 1st ever Kaya toast and eggs breakfast. Waiting for the kaya yet.


Two soft boiled eggs to start the day. Add soy sauce, stir, and slurp it all away!


Perfect breakfast. I wish I can have it every other day.


A mall in Chinatown. It's just like being in Divisoria, too. Well, almost.
