    Flower garlands

    Flowers play an important role in the Indian way of life as they are a symbol of prosperity. Watch the garland-makers weave their red, yellow and white flower creations from roses, marigolds, and the fragrant, jasmine.
    You will see the sold on the streets or in a shophouse.

    All gold jewellery shops: Alphabet Rings & other Gold accesseries

    by Rachelynn Updated Dec 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gold for you?

    Little India is a good place to shop for these intricate gold alpabet rings. It's very interesting as it's not widely available in Singapore major jewellery shops (e.g. Lee Hwa, Tian Poh or Goldhear).

    The alphabets itself comes in a variety of design and shapes, curved or straight, slim or bold and is set on the ring. But they come mainly in gold. Prices ranges from $50SGD to $200 SGD depending for lady or man and how heavy is the gold.

    I only get to know about such rings when my mum brought me to chose some for my wedding. But i couldn't made up my mind now and i really wanted my the rings to be in silver rather than gold.

    Well as i have admitted being a fickle-minded woman on my homepage, =P i haven't make up my mind yet! =)

    Besides alphabet rings, it's also a good chance to feast yr eyes upon the different designs wore by Indian ladies, some are complicated patterns with flower motifs while some are just simple gold chains.

    Purple & yellow!

    Trust me, before you even see the stalls, the smell of the flowers would have reached your nostrils by then. =)

    Prices ranges from $1 onwards, depending on what designs you are looking for.

    It's available near Tekka market, where there a handful of trolleys by the side of the shops. They can keep up til 4 5 days or even longer, according to the merchants.

    Mustafa Centre: How about shopping at 3am?

    by Rachelynn Updated Dec 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mustafa at 11pm.

    Yes!! This is a 24 hr shopping departmental store in Singapore. You can buy anything and everything in Mustafa! From jewellery to electrical appliances to shampoo to medicines to clothes and food...anything...you name it and you can find it in Mustafa!

    I really enjoy shopping here after midnight, it's more for the experience rather than the actual 'shopping' itself. Esp when i can't sleep or after a full supper of roti prata.

    Things are slighly cheaper here and esp so if you buy in bulk.

    Of course you will need to catch a cab back, unless you are driving or staying at the nearby hotels. =)

    Mustafa shopping centre, Serangoon, Singapore

    Mustafa Shopping Centre is a very famous 24 hours shopping area in Little India of Singapore, where you can find almost everything ranging from department stall, supermarket, jeweleries, pharmacy, eateries, VCDs, electronics, computers, Singapore souvenirs, hotel etc etc (see website below for more information).

    The items in Mustafa are relatively cheap and you cannot find some of them elsewhere in Singapore. Best part is that it is 24 hours and be careful because it is very crowded during the weekends.

    I think a visit to Singapore is not complete without experiencing the Little India area in Serangoon, including a visit to Mustafa Shopping Centre. For more information and history of Mustafa, you can visit their official website below.

    Beauty Shops: Bindi

    by Rachelynn Written Dec 17, 2004
    You can find different designs of bindi

    Have you ever wondered what was worn btween the beautiful think black eyebrows of Indian ladies? It's called a Bindi.

    According to my Indian friend, Bindi brings good luck , wisdom and is considered a symbol of Goddess Parvati.

    In the olden days, the ladies wore it as a symbol of their marital status.Nowadays Bindi has become ornamental, single ladies wear them with much pride as well.

    Bindis comes in a wide array of designs and colours. They are made of coloured felt with gum at the back and are usually decorated with gold glitter for the extra touch.

    You can find packets of bindi selling at Little India. It's pretty common to find in beauty shops.
