300811 Hollywood Canteen 2nd last day

street singapore

This was a part of Singapore I never knew existed until BoonHwee alerted CK and me about the closure of this coffeeshop at the end of the August 2011.

I brought my FM2+55F1.2 and my Fuji X100 during this outing. It’s light and would not get in the way of my Wanton Mee and Prata.

As expected, there was many people who wanted to relish the good food in that environment for the last time. CK queued about 20 mins for the Wanton Mee! After Wanton mee, we decided to go for prata too and that was the last. =D

This was a shot of City Plaza as we made our way towards the Hollywood canteen, which is opposite it.

I have no idea what was CK trying to capture but well, he climbed onto the table, like a superstar.

Wanton Mee boss. I did not managed to get a shot of him throwing the mee up with his scoop.

Duck Rice stall with a queue as well. I heard from Boon Hwee that this duck rice is pretty good.

This was a cleaner at the coffeeshop, who got into an argument with another cleaner for pouring dirty plates into his bucket of clean plates. This was captured at the point where he was scolding him.
