Chinatown Update

I’ve been staying in Chinatown the past couple of days and I like how the are has its own charm. I wasn’t able to take pictures until today because I’ve been busy taking care of other details. Anyway, since some of you seem interested, I thought I’d share pictures:

I love the vintage little windows on top of the shops – they look like small doors, don’t they? I’m not an expert but I believe Chinatown is a touristy place because of all the stores and food stalls.

This store display isn’t in Chinatown but I thought I’d throw it in here because it involves books:

Last but not the least – I’m currently in the middle of Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire, which is the first book in the Toby Daye series.

I keep wishing I had more time to read because I’m enjoying it so far. Nowadays, I only get to read while waiting for the train to arrive. I hope you’re all having a good weekend!

  1. Yay, looks like fun over there. I kind of love that there’s so much to walk and see. A Tintin shop! I didn’t know that sort of thing existed!

    • Yep, there are a couple of streets that intersect each other and it’s fun to just walk around and explore. Also, Chinatown here is a lot nicer (and cleaner) than the Chinatown in Manila – although I do love going there too. The Tintin shop was a pleasant surprised, I was tempted to buy postcards even if I’m not a big fan.

  2. I’ve been to Chinatown too and I went camera crazy at the Tin Tin Shop. The stores are pretty neat and organized no? I like that the MRT exit is smack dab in the middle of Chinatown too. I thought the place would be hard to find.

    I’m glad that you finally got settled already, Chachic! πŸ˜€

    • I know, it’s nice how everything is so well-organized around here. Makes it a lot easier to go around. I can’t even count the number of MRT stations that I’ve been to in the past couple of days. I hope I can visit BooksActually soon! πŸ™‚

  3. Yay! I’d seen you say on Twitter you’d taken these, I’m glad you posted them. I love how colorful Chinatown is! The Chinatown in NYC is predominantly red, and I’m loving the yellows greens and blues that you have there in addition.

    • The Chinatown in Manila isn’t as pretty (or as clean) as this one although the food is good because it’s authentic Chinese. I’m glad you like the pictures!

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
