📷#MarketFriday Stuck in the rain after lunch | 午餐后被雨困😎(by @ace108)

 
Working from home on a Friday again. The rain in the morning stopped and I decided to go out for lunch. I saw people were still at the market as I waited for the elevator to the food centre at Lorong 1 Toa Payoh.
星期五再次在家工作。 早上下的雨停了,我决定出去吃午餐。 当我在大巴窑1巷等电梯去熟食中心时,我看到人们还在菜市。

🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particularly the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.
🎶让大家继续读的时候,欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首,名为“春天”。

I tried my luck with the noodle stall hoping to get $3 cashback using my PayLah app.
我去面条摊上碰了碰运气,希望使用我的 PayLah app支付能获得 3 元的现金回扣。

I got my noodle which tasted OK for $4 but no cashback.
我买了一碗面给了4 元。味道不错,但没有现金回扣啦。

So, I went to the bean curd stall once again.
于是,我又去了一次豆腐花摊。

Just bought one bowl of dessert at $2.80 to take home. Less than $3 but I got full price cash back. Yah.
只买了一碗 $2.80 美元的豆花带回家。 不到 3 美,但我得到了全价现金回扣呀。爽。

Not so yay. I rained and I decided to eat my dessert there hoping to sit out the rained.
喔,下雨了。不爽。就只好决定在那里吃我的甜点,希望能坐一下雨会停。

It got heavier and didn't stop.
没停反而下得更大。

The food centre was getting crowded. I went to a coffeeshop and tried to sit out the rain again.
熟食中心越来越多人。 我去了一家咖啡店,坐下来喝杯咖啡避雨。

After a while it did get ligher and I got home mostly dry. 😎
过了一会儿,天确实变小了,我回到家时几乎没怎么淋到雨。😎

Why didn't you get the cashback on the noodles? Wasn't there a deal on that one? Glad you got the dessert for free! Yay!

It has been raining here today - just like that, kind of heavy, kind of not. Hi, Ace! @ace108 Thanks for taking us along!

#MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through their markets, especially local markets and farmers' markets, and eventually branched out and evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, and even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact that these things are normal for us. There are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I have learned so much about all of you and it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world.

Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday

I cannot figure out. It supposed to be that app payment at the food centre that matters but seems like maybe some stalls are not part of the scheme. Thanks for coming by.
