March in Singapore: Buddha Tooth Relic

Going around Chinatown has always been a pleasant experience.

We started the day with the usual shopping around Chinatown. After dropping off our stuff back in the hotel, we went to one part of Chinatown that I've discovered through Instagram, the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.

At first, I was hesitant to whip out my camera to take photos. I asked a lady that looked like a staff inside if it was okay to take photos, even showing my camera to make sure she knew I was not referring to camera phones. She simply nodded and I did my thing.

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is a Buddhist temple and museum complex. It was built to house the tooth relic of the historical Buddha.

The temple's interiors tell stories of culture over hundred years old.

I originally planned to take photos of the temple's exterior soon as it lights up during the night. So before the sun set, I tried to look for a good vantage point and took sample shots.

Since my plan was to take photos during the night, we decided to walk around stalls around the temple and also have dinner at the Chinatown Food Street.

After having dinner, I thought it was time to head back to the temple and set up. Sadly, the temple didn't have any lights on and I killed time for nothing. I'll definitely come back and get that shot I envisioned. We just stayed in the food street a bit longer before calling it a day.
