What $20 gets you in LITTLE INDIA (Singapore)
Good afternoon guys and welcome back to another video here in Singapore and in today's video guys I'm going to be taking you with to little India as you can see here and we're going to be heading up there seeing what we get ourselves into I don't really know anything about it I just saw it on the metro map and I said you know what I'm going to see what little India is all about I miss India because I was there uh cheese probably like a month ago already and so I can maybe try a little Indian food walk around see if they've got some markets that could be a pretty fun time so let's head on up there all right guys so I've just taken the metro to little India and I am going to see what all I can buy with 20 US dollars so basically I'm gonna first convert this which I already did I just have the 20 for show here guys so that equals about 27 Singapore dollars so that's two tens here and then a five and a two so that's 20 US dollars right there guys 27 Singapore dollars I think there's maybe a couple maybe like 50 cents or something additional but it's roughly 20 US dollars so I have that to spend I'm hoping I can find a couple things at the market and i can also maybe get something to eat here in little India as soon as I saw it on the metro map like I was explaining to you guys i was like i need to go to little India because I'm missing it and I had such a fun time out there so let's go ahead and head on in and see what we're gonna be able to buy with 27 Singapore dollars or 20 US dollars all right so the nice part is right when you get off the metro here you're already directly into entering into the markets here so we've got a lot of stuff and I can tell you just that first looks from some of these price tags over here we're seeing a better rate than what I've seen in some of the other parts of Singapore here so we'll kind of do a stroll through here and and see what we've got to offer I don't really have anything specific in mind to buy besides maybe something to eat but uh yeah we'll cruise around this way seems like it's more of an electronics market over here and maybe the market stretches a bit more the other way as well so we'll try heading down the other way and see what we find but uh generally like so far I'm saying you can get closer you get electronics bottle shop right there snacks convenience stores and looks like data plans right there as well so very nice and it seems like coming down this way we've got more clothes some various types of jewelry down there always could go for another ring here but I don't want to be too unoriginal because I always buy some herbal good smell of oils and things like that and I think that is pretty much it on this side. All right so looks like we're getting into some more stuff over here I figured like there was no way that little market we just walked through was all of it but I can smell some good food here you can see we've got uh you know I'd say this is similar architecture to what you'd see in India and oh yeah here's where we get the food guys so we're gonna have to find something delicious around here to eat the markets seem like they're getting much much larger over here so let's go ahead and see what we're going to find here I could go for a little biryani right now to be honest with you but I'm not sure which options we're going to find yet we've got quite a few things cold drinks handmade carrot cake still nothing that's specifically calling me out with like some Indian food here but we're gonna keep searching around until we find something red bean soups that seems like a lot of the places are actually closed though it is a saturday so maybe it's a bit quieter because it is not the weekend or sorry it is the weekend it's not the weekdays a lot of people over here on this side all right what we got going on over here oh we've got Indian food right there so that could be delicious Sri Lankan food down there always a good time I wonder if they've got the uh the chicken biryanis over here looks like they've got some good stuff oh yeah what do we got up oh yeah we do have biryani that is a good sign guys I knew I was going to find some and that's exactly why I came over to little India right now that is what my taste buds are thinking about at the and if you moment in here we've got all different types of uh chickens various uh types of sauces in there I recognize a lot of these so it's good to uh good to be back with what I know sure the chicken is good yeah oh very good I might have to try the chicken biryani you get that with a little beer on in there that is perfect yeah I was just in India for a month so I was craving some Indian food. Hello, how are you can I please have a chicken biryani please a "bohot acha [Very Good]" one yeah daniabad [Thank you] oh yeah so we've got some fresh stuff and it looks like a biryani here is about 650 guys so since we have 27.27 Singapore dollars to spend that'll get us through the first uh almost
seven that we'll be spending on the biryani so oh yeah we're even getting served on the uh I forgot what types of uh leaves those are called oh yeah that looks fantastic very good so that is a fresh looking biryani and we'll also get a water to wash it down and then uh do you have a bottle of water water. Water no. You buy yourself. Thank you very much. Dhainyabad Bhaisahab [Thank you brother] all right so this is what we've got right here guys a delicious biryani ready to be chowed on made here right in Singapore oh yeah that's a lot of food I don't know if I'm gonna be able to finish all that but we'll do our best and then it looks like we're gonna have to get ourselves a little beverage right over here I'm thinking will just go for a typical water ah hello hello just one water please oh yeah thank you grab a fork here thank you very much so guys with the water and the biryani that brings us down to a remaining looks like 18 singapore dollar suspense we'll get a fresh good meal in us and then we'll do a little shopping with the remaining cash we've got oh actually oh 19 19 we got remaining so we're going to go ahead and uh try this out here i need to grab myself a uh a knife cool so one more look at it guys what we've got on here we've got the chicken we've got the egg we've got the rice right there we've got it looks almost like i forgot the name of it but it looks almost like coleslaw and then a little bit of dipping sauce right there so it's going to be delicious let me tell you that oh all right where did we even start i'm going to dump a little bit of this with that rice already honestly the biryani portions are massive I could eat this with like two or three other people all right I should be using my hands but uh I haven't been able to wash them so uh we're gonna first of all get a little bit of that egg broken off in there try out some of that biryani let's get it going oh oh we already lost some on the uh on the shirt that didn't take long and oh it's sliding right off oh yeah guys honestly it's like I'm teleported back to India where I just spent some time in delicious delicious we've got a nice I'd say um relatively mild sauce on it you really gotta douse it up to be quite honest here load it up in there and get a good proper bite that is good, tasty and I will say like once I put a little bit more of the sauce on it that gave it a nice more like enjoyable taste it was a bit maybe dry with the rice at first without it fantastic guys now we got to go straight into the chicken here so let's give it a bite that is juicy chicken uh you know it's made the local way when you can taste all the flavours you got that spice honestly I almost forgot how spicy some of the food is here in India they're not here in India but in India, Indian type food let me tell you it is hitting the spot I'm literally so glad that I actually was looking so closely at the metro sign because I was actually going to be heading back to my hotel and then I saw a little India I was like oh I need to stop there and see what happens see what we can find that is the one thing I forgot to get napkins guys so my hands are going to be a little soaked by the end of this meal but it definitely is tasty you guys remember my biryani valley back in India's because I was eating so many of these and let me just tell you that biryani it's been a while good to be back oh yeah now we're mixing it actually with a little bit of the um the sauce from here a bit of the spice from the chicken that'll be the ultimate spoonful right there and then chase it down with one more bite of that chicken baby let's go that's exactly what I was looking for tasty, delicious give my mouth a nice little fiery, sizzle there gonna need some water to wash it down now let me tell you that guys oh literally bringing down the internal body temperature like 50 degrees let me tell you if any of you guys were here and I would have known I would have invited you to split this biryani meal with me because I'm gonna be so full after this I'm gonna need to walk like another 10 000 steps and if you saw yesterday's video I put on about 10 000 sharing with you my first impressions of Singapore and guys I was able to locate the napkins that's the one thing that I never forget when I mean the biryanis holy crap do they get messy get all over my face and everything so sorry about talking to the last like five minutes and I'm just wearing half of it that's what happens when it's been a while since you had a biryani I'm gonna finish this off guys and then we're gonna take you with us to head over to more places here in little India all right guys we have finished off the biryani now it's time to cruise around more of this market see how we're going to spend our last 19 Singapore dollars or what is that maybe 15 left it looks like we've got textiles and dresses up on the next floor so I'd say we cruise up there maybe we'll take you guys for a little walk through this area as well it looks like we've got a lot of fruits fresh produce vegetable market some delicious juices over there so can't go wrong it seems like the prices over here are quite good in terms of what they've got to offer we've got fresh meats over on this side of the market there oh yeah oh yeah oh holy crap you can smell the meats there it's uh it's a little strong guys one day one day on YouTube I'm gonna be able to figure out how one day it's gonna evolve to where you can smell what I'm smelling and you'll be like oh I know what he's talking about now no just because they were the butcher shop so and now we're walking into the fish market here so that's where you get some of the stronger smells but holy crap look at some of these these are like mini sharks right there this is like a full on massive market so that seems like that's how they have the design layout of this whole place we've got produce we've got meat we've got all types of butcher shops over here and then up on the second floor is where where we're going to locate all of the textiles and I haven't I have a feeling that's hello how are you my friend okay Keise ho Bhaisahab [How are you, Brother]. Probably "Bohot acha [very good"] very good oh that's I will tell you one thing and then I loved filming in India because people just love being on camera and you know some of the other countries I've been to people uh a fair amount of countries I have been to people love being on camera but there's also been some where you know people are a little shy and it's totally cool but like you know it's more fun when you get others on camera you get to meet them talk with them so uh yeah I'd say actually looking out here we've got some markets down there all along this area wow so I'm thinking we might uh cross the street here and see what's down this road over here. I'm seeing some clothing options here, so I think this video has turned into a little market hunt with those remaining 19 Singapore dollars we're going to be spending here guys so let's check out what we've got over here and see what there is.
Well some shoes over there some textiles oh yeah we've got some fresh looking black shoes right here these could be a good move. I'm not gonna sure those are gonna fit though probably probably this size right there some "Suprees" never heard of this brand "Suprees" all right but I do kind of like these ones as well they've got a good look to them so we can pay what's the price on those they're gonna be paying 12 all right that's doable and I think those are going to fit. Hello, can I uh purchase this? Okay. size yeah 41 yeah who you are I think I'm 41 yeah you know or 43. 43 maybe yeah 43 I think is the one I'm gonna need well yeah 42 is good actually yeah that's perfect uh oh they're 18. yeah oh can you do 12? No, sorry. I don't think I can get it then I'm limited on my budget so thank you. Guys bad news I read the wrong wrong side I didn't want to pay 18 because
then we pretty much have burned through all of the remaining cash. So hey you know you live and you learn they're not as negotiable in this area yeah we've got a lot of these uh really beautiful flowers here that I saw I mean I did see them all over India when I was there. I remember like distinctively and when I was in Jaipur that's when uh I saw a lot of different markets like this which was uh a lot of a lot of like really good smells and sights to be able to see like such beautifully designed uh uh flowers there so yeah let's see what's over here I could go for maybe a new piece of clothing if we find the right one it's pretty cool though to be here um and in various parts of the city you're going to see obviously depending on what the population mainly is you're going to see different languages on the signs you know over in over in some of the other areas we showed you in the first impressions video guys signs were only in English and let me tell you this not the case over here. I think you guys uh if you've seen my india series we'll recognize some of the uh some of the uh figures of the letters but yeah we're gonna head back over kind of near the mall area seems like this is more of the pawn shop gold area a cool area to walk around though the one thing I'll say is like there's not too many people that are asking you to buy stuff like not really much pushiness it's more of just uh you stroll through scroll in and out and if you find something you like then uh then you buy it there so what do we got going on over here all right well we're walking back through the place where we first started out i'm going to figure out if we can get up to the second floor guys because the second floor is where I saw a bunch of like other textile shops and over here oh they've even got a jungle gym an actual gym over there and so a little bit of everything and what's going on guys because it is so hot here in Singapore I lost you there for a few minutes I didn't realize it but I was just walking around I didn't actually buy anything yet but we're gonna go back and try and go up on the second floor and we'll see what we can get. All right. Oh! we got some pigeons.
Hello, there Sire. Down boy. Wow it's crazy they're so used to being around humans you can come that close to them and they don't run away but here we are all right we've got a lot of clothing up here seems like this all over here is women's clothing we'll see if we can find any men's clothing as we walk through this area let's see oh we've got some very nice a tire over here. Oh yeah look at this beautiful clothing really beautiful here we go we might have found some nice dress over here I do like this gray one I think it'll fit too sixteen ninety so that'll use up a fair amount of it and let's see what are the dress we've got I want to try this one I think this one's calling my name but we'll check over here as well oh these are 22. it's
