This is not your father's Singapore.

I am staying in Little India at The Inn Crowd Hostel, a really terrific place.  Met Travis and Bo, two nice guys from Edmonton who are on day 2 of their first ever Asia trip

After two months in Indonesia of eating no dairy at all, I was surprised to find myself half sick from heartburn and bloatedness eating Indian food cooked in clarified butter (ghee).  Way too rich.

Headed down to Chinatown for some breakfast.

Singapore is tearing down the 11 sanitary markets and replacing them with newer, more sterile places.  This breaks my heart-- the Tekka Center  where I used to have breakfast every day is gone. 

And when I was here in 2004, there was no massage, let alone prostitution.  Not any more.  "Sexy Oil Massage" signs across the street from where I type this.  And I saw my first-ever Indian prostitutes on the street last night in front of the club named "Bombay Underground".
