Yesterday was the last day for "Portes ouvertes des ateliers d'artistes de Bellville", a festival where the public can enter the studios of various artists in Belleville and see where the artists work & often live.
As a newbie in Paris, I thought this would be the perfect way to get out and about and discover some new artists, and in the process, explore a new area of Paris, Belleville.
I had heard a little about Bellville, mainly that it was home to a large Asian population which made me excited as it was probably going to be my best shot at finding some decent Asian food in Paris ( I was not disappointed!).
On my way to a cluster of galleries I came across this street, filled with graffiti and other random objects, I couldn't help but get snap happy.
I spent three days in Singapore exploring the modern and green metropolis that it is. I was completely blown away at how beautiful it was, and how it had managed to successfully combine traditional areas with modern skyscrapers and still retain a lush ecosystem within the city.
A special mention must be given to the incredible and varied cuisine which seems to combine all the best dishes across Asia. If you are ever fortunate enough to visit, be sure to go to Maxwell's Food Court, a huge food court filled with small Hawker stalls where you can pick up a flavor-full and mouth watering dish for an average price of $4.
If you're after something a little more glamorous, there's an array of rooftop bars where you can sip champagne and overlook the city while the Marina Bay Sands puts on a light show in the background.
