New Vs. Old
Overall Experience 
I do not live near Joo Chiat/Katong area and thus working around this area is a new experience. Shophouses that are full of traditional food and trades vs. the new Katong i12 mall - Joo Chiat / Katong area is an area where the new meets the old.

Try the Katong Laksa, take a look at this old furniture shop that uses woven bamboo (along the streets of Joo Chiat CC) and grab some traditional pastries at a Hong Kong styled shop opposite the CC. There are also famous Bak Ku Teh, Durian Puff, Chicken Rice, Korean BBQ stalls along this road. The lunch crowd is spoilt for choice!

(Quite a few shophouse spaces has been taken up by new shops like Actually Chocolate, Moshi Bakes, Fat Boy Burgers which is interestingly new meets old again.)

Overall, visit this place for a greater understanding of Singapore.
