After our cuppa along Tanjong Katong Road, we took a short stroll and chanced upon a huge group of people crowded outside a restaurant. I had an inkling what it might be and I was right. These people were standing outside Tadka Indian Kitchen, and there was a flatscreen TV showing the Cricket World Cup Finals in there.
My father just couldn’t resist it and had to take a photo. The cricket fans were all game for a photo too and some of them even waved and clapped for the photo! I just love it the way sports fans are willing to rough it out just to catch their favourite game on TV. It’s definitely much more atmospheric watching sports in a group. Some might say that standing out here is more fun than watching it cooped up at home alone!
There’s kind of like a rich poor divide going on here. Those who can afford it sit inside the air-conditioned restaurant, while those who can’t, buy a beer from the 7-11 next door. Actually, I think nobody was drinking beer at all. Unlike the rowdy scenes along One Fullerton, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay for the Football World Cup, everyone here really was pretty orderly!
