shopping in singapore

the last time i had a day off was.. last wednesday?
dad said, 'tell starbucks you don't need no break, you can work 24/7'
and i felt a bit guilty for taking leave to go shopping in singapore so i did just that =.=
now it's almost 10am and i can still hardly open my slit eyes.

can't complain, was up late last night having a kick-a** dinner/supper

boiled/raw veg w bagna cauda dip [not pictured]

i'm addicted to pudding camera!!

the most delicious okonomiyaki ever!

it's even better than the one i had in au, and it tastes equally yummy hot or cooled.
PERFECT BENTO FOOD [hint until cannot hint already liao]

butter pan-fried abalone

;;;;; singapore 战利品 jang jang jang jang;;;;;

am not stepping on my bag

26-seater double decker complete with personal entertainment system and massage functions on the reclining seat.
complimentary bottle of water!
best bus i'd ever been on!!

garrett popcorn shop at resort world

i hate popcorns that aren't properly coated with caramel.
or butter-and-salt popcorns.
or not-popped corns.

but every. single. popcorn from garrett is miraculously coated in rich caramel [or cheese/macadamia/cashew]
and popped til it's big and crispy.
the downside is that it's too salty, especially when consumed hot.
i prefer refrigerated popcorn.

garrett belongs to hershey's.
go there for free reese's samples.
but a lot of attractions are still in construction, so i don't suggest holidaying at resort world just yet.

an actually-quite-big Small serve for s$8

xmas deco at resort world

i'd wanted to go to haji lane and other uniquely singaporean places but my shopping mates prefer air con and high street fashion so 99% of my 战利品 are brands available in kl.

pull & bear, s$9.90

i'd been seeking high and low for a top like this for layering purposes.
bf's mum is super-duper-uber conservative.

couldn't find suitable ones in kl-- my fave haunt topshop's tanks are semi-transparent.
why why why?!

my neurotic mum hates me lugging around a hundred shopping bags.
she starts losing her temper in public and forcing me to put everything in the biggest bag.
but i love walking around like a christmas tree with bags of goodies dangling off me.
makes me feel like.. carrie bradshaw or something.

yuzu candies, s$7.50

ever since visiting muji in hk a few months ago, i'd been craving for their yuzu and lemon candies.
there weren't any available in muji singapore, but we came across nippon-ya.
nippon-ya is just beside muji and specializes in japanese snacks.
there were cheesecake drops and other weird food, but i decided to play it safe this time.


did quite a bit of food shopping.

ginger & brown sugar cookies, s$3.30

red bean daifuku, s$3.30

chocolate strawberry marshmallows, s$1.90

tao recommended this at muji hk but i only bought it now.
all quite good, muji's food quite berkualiti.

knit cap, s$59

i look ugly in caps/hats [hence the umbrella]
but muji caps rock!
everything is gorgeous!
quite risky buying this as not sure if i can go abroad next year.. but can wear in hk soon also!

;;;;; VS!! ;;;;;

this deserves it's own heading!!

i fought with parents throughout the trip so one night i just took off with some money to let off steam at the luxury boutiques near the casino.

this was when i saw the only victoria's secret in asia!!
with a huge nude shot of miranda kerr at the entrance!!

i didn't buy anything the first night because i'm not a shopaholic like my mum.
but i couldn't get vs out of my mind so after breakfast the next morning i ran back to vs.

 s$30, i need some basics lah


the packaging is ugly and looks grandmotherly but the scent!!
i can't open it [them] because i'm not finished with my current miracle oil but i take out the bottles and sniff them sometimes because they smell so good!!




they all smell like heaven.
