Tropicana at Jalan Lee Kwee Foh

This former single storey building has now become two after the extensive renovation.  I thought it was going to be an eatery but it turned out to be a koi retail shop!  Fishes not for eating. 

Well designed and renovated with high insulated metal roof decks. 

The high side cladding allows light into the fish ponds and advert boards to be displayed. 

Good ventilation and lighting.  This place is very clean without any water collection on the floor.  There is even a balcony on the first floor.  The owner will probably admire the koi fish from high above, and from this vantage view is exactly how koi fish should be appreciated. 

The retail store has water pumps and lots of fish food for sale.

Koi fish everywhere.  Small, medium, large and very large!

There are seats for koi enthusiasts to sit whole day just to admire the fish swimming

The very large koi pond behind.  Will dream of this being my lap pool at home!

Just keep on dreaming.  Splash, splash ........


Entre at Jalan Lee Kwee Foh

Have always wanted to visit this cafe located at Jalan Lee Kwee Foh, Canning Garden.  It is usually full of people. I am one of the first to arrive at 11.30 this morning after church service at CGMC.  It has been in operation for the last 3 years.

A peep from the bay window where I sat.  Pretty good view of the continuous traffic flow.  The grass is artificial and this is why it is always green even during this hot season. 

The cash counter.  Order the pastry and beverage, pay and get a number where one would get the food delivered.  Simple decor with white walls all around.  

A selfie before the food arrived. 

Espresso.  Delightful cutlery.  Bronze?

Ham and cheese croissant.  Delicious.  

Sugar served in style!  Needed it to reduce the bitter coffee.  

The first bite.  Too delicious to describe any further.  Will now concentrate on the food!!
