I’m not a mall person but we had fun anyway. This mall is 12km from Perth city centre and is the largest shopping centre in the whole of Western Australia. Only trouble was there was difficulty getting a taxi back … Continue reading
My cousin was so sweet to accompany us on a boring shopping trip and she made so much effort to help us find what we needed. We easily walked 10,000 steps that day, but that means more room for dessert. … Continue reading
My storage solutions are usually from Daiso or IKEA but it’s nice to have another option. Previously the stuff here was just too expensive so I’m glad they have come to their senses. Competition from Daiso must have nudged them … Continue reading
This is a self indulgent post (that I need to keep updating) as I’m tired of always searching for parking rates and want to find it all in one place for malls I frequent and more of them located in … Continue reading
In Singapore malls are needed to escape the intense heat. And it’s nice to find a new place to hang out, that’s not too crowded. I think it’s because it doesn’t have a Uniqlo. I noticed that any mall with … Continue reading
Just love this chain of stores from Japan because it’s affordable where each item is S$2. Some items at Daiso are worth much more (good quality toys, shopping bags or files) and some much less (a single hair clip, unless … Continue reading
Retail therapy is great. Been doing more online shopping where you can often get better prices, but it’s nice to get out of the house to a quiet mall and just browse. It’s relaxing to just gaze at pretty things. … Continue reading
Capitol Theatre after the renovation now has a fancy name, Capitol Piazza, and it’s filled with fancy shops. I can’t even recall what the old place looks like even though I’ve been there countless number of times for movies. A … Continue reading
You can get colours that you normally can’t find at other stores. But the place is super crammed and it’s hard to try on a pair of shoes. I also would feel obligated to buy, so I’d rather go to … Continue reading
It’s fun to look at trinkets that tourists might buy. I thought that the souvenirs sold at the Chinatown tourist office (next to the Chinatown Complex/Market/hawker centre) were pretty neat.
I do like this new mall which is near the Hillview estate in Upper Bukit Timah, as it’s spacious, isolated (not near an MRT which means less chance of crowds) and more a food place than a shopping place which … Continue reading
Komtar is open in Johor Bahru (JB). This new mall has many of the upmarket stores that Singapore has in Orchard Road. But I find the prices here higher and the selection smaller. I wish we had a sit down … Continue reading
Fab India is at Paragon and Vivo City (pictured here) and I find it has a lovely selection of kurtas and Indian style blouses that cost much less than British India.
I found the huge art installation out front eye catching but very weird looking. Just like at Changi Airport, the mall has a bouncy castle for Christmas.
Tanglin Mall is another place that looks charming at Christmas. I saw kids lining up to take a photo to Santa as well.
But back then the back of the couch was fine. There sure are some amazing playhouses in Singapore but they do come with a hefty price tag. Playtents are cheaper (Ikea) but I was attracted to this sturdier pretty one … Continue reading
Bedok Mall is open way earlier than expected. I like that it’s connected to the Bedok MRT but other than Wingstop (chicken wing chain from USA that hasn’t crossed my radar) nothing else seemed that exciting. For food I would … Continue reading
When B first told me about how Robinsons has taken over at The Heeren and is now almost like a Harrods (taken over the whole building apart from the Costa Cafe) I thought he might have read exaggerated reports, but … Continue reading
If you’re searching for a mall that’s new or revamped you would have checked out Suntec City like I did. The place used to look dated and dingy so the change is good. There’s a huge Uniqlo and right across, … Continue reading
I used to be very reluctant to go to IMM as I found the place rather dingy. The only reason I had to come here was when Singapore had only one Daiso outlet. IMM has since transformed, with their new … Continue reading
The kids clothes are cute at both these places but a lot more affordable at H&M. For adult clothes I much prefer Gap for the styling. The H&M clothing seems flimsy but much cheaper I guess? This place is still … Continue reading
