Singapore ShoppingDecember 30, 2011
It was just a yesterday night plan when I decided to join my aunt's family to Singapore! My uncle is going to Singapore for work so I thought I can just follow to go shopping! Not to visit places in Singapore but to visit the malls :P
IT'S MY FIRST TIME TO SINGAPORE! Even though Singapore is my neighbour country lol.
We started our journey around 7.30am and only had less than 5 hours of sleep. It's hard to get sleep in the car too!
It was really a long ride. My uncle was so sleepy that we had lots of stop. By the way, those went went were my aunt, my uncle and my four younger cousins.
We reached Singapore around 1+pm. We are gonna stay in Raffles Town Club for 3 days 2 night :)
Edmund was so nice to reached the club just a short while after we check-in. He has got to wait for a little while too for me to get shower and get extra bed for our studio room as there is not enough bed for 7 of us in 2 rooms.
I feel so lucky to have friend in Singapore and took me and my aunt to shopping! Edmund took me and my aunt to go shopping at ION Orchard. It's awesome to have Edmund with me as I just tell him which store I wanna go and he'll bring me there. Save lots of time looking for the shops because the shopping mall is really huge!
It was then my aunt said she has to meet up with her husband's friend for a dinner and we left ION. We only managed to shop for 4 hours or so and I didn't bought anything in the first day.
After dinner, we went back to hotel early to get some sleep. It's really a long and tiring day for all of us :)
On the second day in Singapore, my aunt and I decided to just shop for the whole day. I managed to buy a boots for myself only. Can't really buy a lot of things because you need time to choose and compare and think. Haiz...girls shopping is really troublesome XD
Anyway, we headed back to hotel around 5+ because my uncle said he wanna take us out for dinner in a famous restaurant in Singapore! But too bad, the restaurant was closed so we only dined in at a restaurant recommended by the taxi guy.
I wonder if the chef at the restaurant attended culinary schools in Ohio or another place to know how to cook food that good.
Went back hotel to rest and watch tv :) Talked to my aunt and cousins too.
For the last day in Singapore, we only had half day because we had to check out the hotel at 12pm. So my aunt and I woke up early in the morning to shower and pack before we head out for shopping again! This time we just got some Singapore souvenirs like keychains and fridge magnet at Lucky Plaza, then went to Takashimaya for branded stuff.
Branded stuff in Singapore is cheaper than Malaysia really. Even their public transport service is so convenient and efficient. I would go to Singapore again someday for shopping and also the next time, to visit places in Singapore. Thanks to my aunt and her family for taking care of me in these 3 days :) Thanks for a great ending of a holiday to Singapore in 2011.
