Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail & Forty Hands Review

Singapore being such a tiny island, sometimes, we may just run out of ideas on how to spend our precious weekend.

Besides shopping and movies, what else can we do in Singapore? 

Why not try walking around Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail and indulge ourselves in the juxtaposition of old and new Singapore?

Old architectural buildings with
new chic cafes & boutiques within

The Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail is officially launch on 14 April 2013 to capture and bring life to one of the oldest estate in Singapore. 

When we walked around Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail, it felt like we have walked into the 80's century. 

Push cart selling Satay!
My hubby and I were lucky to find the last push cart satay stall in Singapore. 
This old man has been selling satay from his wooden push cart for the last 37 years!

 Besides old buildings and a hidden push cart, we have found many paintings and drawings on walls and along the small lanes within Tiong Bahru.

There are also many esoteric book stores, cafes and boutiques hidden around the corners. 

After a day of adventures, we set our foot into a cafe known as "Forty Hands" hidden inside the old estate. 

It is small cafe operates from Tue to Sun between 8am to 7pm. 

When we walked into the cafe, we were pleasantly welcomed by the strong coffee aroma.

Being a traditional coffee lover, a picture on the wall caught my hubby's attention. 

 Since it was our first time at the place, we decided to try their signature dishes & coffee.
