Toby’s Estate


I have to apologise for the lack of proper food pictures for a cafe post – unfamiliarity with my rangefinder, the Minolta Hi-matic 7sII, being the cause of it. A real pity because the food at Toby’s Estate was actually pretty awesome!





Just a thought


The lab is usually empty when I drop my film rolls in the evenings, but sometimes, like today, there was already someone inside, and yet another two who walked in as I was about to leave. Are they avid film shooters like myself? Do they have a story to tell about their analogue journey? Do they blog?  I wonder sometimes.


Swee Choon dim sum


When we first patronised Swee Choon, 7 to 8 years ago, it was a small shop off Desker Road, with some outdoor seats in a dingy and dark alley. It wasn’t famous, but it was convenient for regulars who wanted something to fill their bellies in the thick of the night. You could always drop by and find a seat. The waiters knew the regulars too, and there was something heart-warming about that.

The environment has changed since then. Today, the restaurant is 4 times its original size. We hardly stepped in nowadays, deterred by the crowd that has ballooned over the years. This is one of the rare visits we made to the shop recently, at the request of our friend who lives overseas. To be fair, the Portuguese egg tart and chee cheong fun (rice noodle roll) are pretty awesome.
