singapore – a great shopping destination 0

Posted on August 23, 2008 by dorisch

Singapore has always been one of my favourite destination for food and shopping. Though I am born and bred here, I’m not saying this out of biasness. After shopping in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan and Shanghai, Singapore still remains my favourite shopping stop since all the retail stores and concept shops are located close to each other.

Branded concept stores have sprung up everywhere in Orchard road and the town area. Whether you are shopping for a Prada handbag, La Mer skin care, the latest iPhone 3G or weight loss pill for your waistline, Singapore is a great place where you can shop and compare. Being a multi racial society, it is easy to converse with the locals and receive any shopping help or tips if you need any guidance. What’s cool about shopping in Singapore is that the retail stores have long opening hours from 10am – 10pm (most shops) and it’s safe to be shopping late too!

trip back to Singapore 0

This weekend, I’m off to Singapore for a short break with my family. My son is more excited than us since he gets to visit his favourite play centre and ride in the coach.

Traveling with a toddler has been a common affair for our household. To ease the travel itinerary and to avoid any frustration, I prefer to pack early with my son’s personal belongings as top priority. As a mom, you pack not only for yourself but your child and everyone else in the home. Other than my digital SLR battery charger, phone charger and personal toiletries, my acne cream and health supplements stay top of the list. All our travel documents will be safely placed in my bag the night before our coach trip.

Coming back to my hometown brings alot of comfort to my soul. Though I still face the stresses of family matters, it feels nice to step out of a foreign country and be back to where I used to belong.
