Where you'll be

We will be spending some time at one of the most popular hawker centers among locals and have a light morning snack from my go-to fix for traditional coffee. From there we will take a 5 minutes walk to a mini exhibit showing the traditional equipments used to brew coffee in the past. We will then take a train to the business district that was developed in the 1820s and visit my cozy little cafe.
