Nam’s brews my cup of green milk tea!

Away from the main thoroughfare of Chinatown, I wandered looking for Amoy Street. As a milk tea enthusiast, I was adamant to locate what some Singaporeans have called a ‘hidden gem’.

Besiege: Engineering Ingenuity

Having equipped my machine with all sorts of weaponry, I lower its arms and send it into battle.
