Tokyo Travel Notes # 3

The Singapore Pit Stop

I had long layover on my trip back to Chennai, So decided to venture out in to city to shop and also to meet Kaps.

We decided to meet up, where else ? At Serangoon Road aka Little India. We had our lunch at Anjappar, just off of the Serangoon Road and had a good chat about lot of things from blogs to West Mambalam to Savy Shopping in Singapore.

Kaps introduced me to Naranjan Traders, which is very to close to Mustafa yet cheaper. Here how it works, check out the item you want to buy at Mustafa (mobile phone only ?) and walk over to Naranjan to buy it. But Please note, its all cash only transaction with no possibility of GST refund.
Ferrar Park MRT
Farrer Park MRT, this where you want to get down to reach Mustafa. Singapore MRT is very convenient and simple. Took me about 45 minutes to get to Little India from Changi Airport.
Mustafa Center
The famous Mustafa Center. It is now open 24 hours and Kaps tells me that Mustafa is the largest retail store in Singapore (in terms of revenue ?)

Komalas introducing Chindian..!!!
Komalas with an array of new dishes called Chindian.. Do they offer these in Chennai ?

Here is small clip I took in the Little India vicinity..


  1. Ram,
    It was great meeting you yesterday. Hope you had a safe trip back home.
    Naranjan deals are usually good inspite of the fact that you don't get GST refund. I think Komalas would offer these dishes as Chinese food (Gobi Manchurian, Spring Roll, Noodles and Fried Rice) in India. Here you need to position them as Indianized Chinese dishes or Chindian food.

  2. Visu,
    I was looking for a photo of Kaps and you?

    I'ver never gone out of Singapore Airport. Mostly, the kids will be tired and we as we just sleep...and take the night flight to chennai.

    Maybe the next time. Let's see.

    The video is very nice Visu. Enjoy all your videos. Is this from the new Canon?

  3. NV,
    Unfortunately we didn't take the joint pic even though we thought about it. Anyway I can Visu to email you my pic clicked by him.

    If you have a stopover of more than 6 hours, you could possibly take the free city tour (4 hours).

  4. Narayanan

    Yes.. if you have some free time in SIN next time.. try the 'free' tour..

    Yes..I can mail the photo taken...

    We had a vegetarian thali at Anajappar and it costed around SGD 6.00.. which was rather cheap considering the good quality food..

    Yes.. I took Singapore Metro all the way to Little India.. with transfers at Outram Park and Tanah Merah..
