I managed to visit Plain Vanilla bakery at Yong Siak Street (which comes right after Chay Yan Street). They are supposed to be famous for their cupcakes and one cost $3.90. Lots of tourist and locals but still managed to find a seat inside a room called "the Workshop". I guess the locals have sort of vacated this area in search of the latest "in-thing" so it was much quieter than I expected even though it was a Sunday afternoon.
When I was walking back to the car, I managed to catch this lovely shot.

Apparently, Chay Yan Street is named after a rubber plantation owner.
