11.05a.m - This time I was in China town and was waiting for a friend for brunch. While waiting I walked around and saw this interesting windows with the items of their menu written on it. This restaurant is situated along Trengganu Street. So it seems that customers should make their choice before going upstairs. Here is a translation for the benefit of our TE friends. Incidentally, we did not patronize this shop.
From left to right:
1. 5 spices yam cake.
2. BBQ meat steamed rice pancake roll
3. 3 flavours crispy tart
4. Chicken glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf
5. BBQ pork dumpling
6. Paper wrapped chicken
7. Steamed rice pancake roll in bag
8. Crystal prawn dumpling
9. Crispy hot plate meat
10. Beijing fried dumpling

You maybe could have cut the "neken" ad off, but the purpose of your composition is really intresting and original.
Thanks for the sharing.

Hi Aloysius, I wish I were there. It is a very good advertisement idea. I don't think I could temptation. Thanks for make yourself clean, or I would ask you own the restaurant. You have done a good job. I'd like to visit there if I get chance to Singapore again.
A nice and clear image. You have done a good translation job.

What a dynamic and colourful shot you have rendered here. The colours are amazing and the detail so clear. I love the symmetry too of the shutters, both upper and lower. The colours all seem to blend together to create a festive mood. A most enjoyable shot, well rendered. Well done.

Hi Aloysius. That sounds good! I think there is a Food category which you could put this in. But all of those repeating signs make for a great photo subject. The light was good too. Well seen Aloysius.

What a brilliant way to advertise for their menu.
A very common shot but a very interesting and tempting one.
Well done, Aloysius.

Many thanks for the translation, I had a lot of problem with and could not choose the menu :))
This is a very nice subject and the occasion of a very good perrspective;

Original and interesting menu perspective, I don't remember having seen anything like this anywhere, so it's a clever idea from the restaurant's owner, lunch's ahead in Europe as I write so I'll go for the "9. Crispy hot plate meat", how much extra is DHL delivery ?
Well seen ;-)
Have a nice day,
