Singapore River Walk, waffles ice cream, Singapore

Get out from Raffles Place MRT and continue walking along the Singapore River till you reach the Cavenagh Bridge. Cavenagh Bridge, a Singapore River crossing, located in Central Region. Named after Sir Lieutenant General William Orfeur Cavenagh, the last Governor of the Straits Settlements (1859 - 1867) under British India control. It was built in 1868 and is today the oldest bridge across the Singapore River. It was the last major work of the Indian convicts based in Singapore. Now it serves as a foot-bridge for pedestrian traffic only. 

Weather in Singapore was very hot so we were very lucky to find a traditionally ice cream cart  run by a elderly couple. We quickly grab a sandwich ice cream.

We ordered rainbow ice cream. It tasted so good. We wanted bread with ice cream but they ran out of bread. There were many flavours like chocolate, vanilla, mint or chocolate chip, ....

A thick block of ice cream sandwiched between two waffles.

Go for a walk during the later part of the day, to see the area from day to dusk, as the Singapore River and its surrounding architecture lights up beautifully as evening approaches. Watch the ferries and boats go about below the bridge as you enjoy a walk on the bridge.
