Mademoiselle Blossom : Tiong Bahru – My Hood!

Sometimes this place reminds me of the city I come from, Paris.
Not only thanks to Tiong Bahru Bakery ‘s great croissants and canelés or the French cheese you can find at my favorite hidden gem Secrets fine food. It’s also those imperfect doorways, and this atmosphere of living in a real neighborhood, where people take the time to say Hi, where Uncles and Aunties watch channel 8 with their door open. It definitely has that “In the mood for love” feeling.

Have you ever felt like you could walk for hours, just wondering. That day, I discovered details I’ve never noticed before. Was it the light that changed everything, or just taking the time… How many times must I have passed in front of the community garden without being aware of it. Too busy rushing to the post office or obsessed by getting as quick as possible to the MRT station. Those little herb plants made my heart melt!
