Geylang Serai - Selamat Hari Raya

跟家人到 Geylang Serai 去逛逛,顺便吃晚餐。 那整条街都布置得好美。

As it was taken in the day, there are no lights yet.

The shiny shiny dome of the mosque-like decoration shimmers under the sunlight.

Such foodstalls are a common sight along the street.

100 years ago, who would have thought that Temasek, the then-fishing village would evolve into this big Cosmpolitan city?

Yes, if you noticed, the decoration used Selamat Hari Raya as greeting instead of Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. In that case, have the organiser have made a mistake? Well, I checked the Wikis, while Hari Raya Aidilfitri is the official greeting, Selamat Hari Raya is more commonly used by Malaysia and Singapore's Muslim, so technically they are not wrong either... Maybe there is no wrong or right, it is a matter of preference...
