I’m not that fond of coming to Queensway Shopping Centre unless there is a purpose or unless I get to have curry chicken. The curry chicken here is out of this world and requires a whole other post.
Queensway as we call it, is B’s favourite sports clothing haunt, not mine. It’s just opposite from Ikea (which is where I’d rather be browsing). But I have to admit it’s a pretty cool place and I would miss it if it were gone. It’s a good place to get custom made T shirts done too. The top floor has a whole load of photocopying and photo printing stores. Once I recall I even came here to get trophies for the office karaoke competition. It’s also the place for deals on things like track shoes and tennis rackets. But you need to bargain and ask for a discount. We always say “But we always buy so much from you…” if the discount is not forthcoming. (I can’t helping laughing inside as I’m typing this)
Guess I’m just put off by the crowds. Mostly soccer fans here looking for the latest jersey. I overhead some funny conversations at the soccer jersey store. A guy commented that the latest Manchester United Jersey “Looks like a tablecloth, but when my brother comes down here, he sure confirm buy”. I was giggling on the inside because I was not impressed by the jersey either. Another guy came by and said that “they have run out of ideas.” Think they all thought the red checkered design was ugly, but ardent fans would still buy it. I hardly watch any soccer (made an exception for the world cup) so I just don’t get it. The complete opposite of B, who is a fan.
Actually we were trying to find an alternative place for clothing alteration. Mainly a cheap place where you can shorten the length of your pants for instance. But Meng Meng at Queensway still seems to be the cheapest and fastest option. I think it was
about S$6 (B says S$4) per item and took just half an hour. The lady tailors are very jovial too.
