Tekka Market, Little India, Singapore

I recently visited Tekka Market just before Diwali and I wanted to share just a bit of what I saw as I meandered ::

From the second floor ::

Someone please tell me what these are called.  They have the top that I’m accustomed to, but the pants/bottoms are just awesome —- I must get a couple of these!

 

Up close, these four guys had an amazing system going for preparing fish ::

Joe the Butcher has some amazing pieces of meat …

Then there is the black chicken … (bad picture, but … know that the black chicken is indeed there).

(and just because she will be tickled …. Mia’s rangoli creation for Diwali)

 

Her little hands were very busy with the process of stripping the flowers of their stems and preparing them to be fashioned into the flower shape she had in mind.

Happy Diwali, 2012!

    The colours of India travel wherever Indians do…! Naomi, I have been a sporadic reader of your blog. I was always fascinated at the way an expat looks at my country, specially when they have spent time living the daily life here. What I loved about your blog was that you painted such a beautiful picture of the place. Sure it has things that can be done away with and you did not shy away from mentioning them; but you picked up on the warmth of the people, the vibrant colours and the little joys that make living in India worthwhile. Thank you for doing that :)

    The dress above, looks like a dhoti salwar with a regular kameez. If you do get one, please post your pic :)
