Hello, anyone knows any
interesting - "must see"
type locations in singapore?
Thx in advance :)
I'll bring this thread to the attention of Karen Huang and Jimmy Tan.
The first site that comes to mind is Ban Guan Park at Greenleaf Road, which I blogged about here and here:

While you're there, you might wanna grab a bite at Cantina, just because it's quite out of the way. And you might feel silly trekking all the way there just to see some type!
Greenleaf is also near Holland Village, which is fairly interesting typographically. Sneak peek here: http://www.manic.com.sg/blog/archives/cat_neighbours.php
If you want to see older types, you'll wanna go round to the Arab Street area. It'll be an interesting area to visit, and I think there are a bunch of old sign boards there.
While you're in Singapore, no doubt, you'd want to check out the Esplanade, also known as the "durian".
And while you're in the area, you should check this out http://keropokman.blogspot.com/2008/01/our-glorious-dead-cenotaph.html
No need to make any special effort to see these, you can't miss them.

Well, if you have more non-type related questions on where to go, just ask. I'd be happy to answer them.
Especially if they have anything to do with food. :)
Hope you enjoy your stay here. When's your trip?
You know the habit we have, start shooting
at interesting type whenever we go, hehe
