I'm a Singapore event photographer; specializing in corporate events, weddings and birthday parties.


Ananas Cafe, Singapore

  • Nikon D7000, 35mm f1.8
  • At f2, 1/250 seconds, ISO 100 (should have gone for f4 at ISO 400, never mind)
  • Auto white balance, center weighted metering, aperture-priority, auto ISO
This is like a mini food court, with only three stalls. When I saw "cafe" I was expecting one seller and was confused that I had to order drinks from another stall. Conventional wisdom says that drinks are the most profitable, so the owner won't let other stalls sell drinks. Owner of the drinks stall is usually the owner or main tenant of the place, and he or a relative will be manning the cash register.

There are three stalls: drinks, chicken rice, and mixed noodles. Mixed noodles means it's like a rice stall: with canteen-style scoop-from-a-large-dish meat and veg dishes, only served with dry noodles instead of rice.

It's located in the Aljunied MRT building.
