    Bee Cheng Hiang Franchise: Buying Singapore Brand Meat Floss

    by SLLiew Written Oct 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Singapore barnd of Bee Cheng Hiang franchise is famous in Malaysia and even in Shanghai.

    You can taste the different dried meat in floss or preserved barbecued cut pieces of different flavors. Pork and chicken are most popular. Hence this is not halal for Muslims.

    Excellent gift from Singapore. At least you can say it was bought in Singapore.

    Velocity (Novena): Shopping Hub in the City

    by Strikinsmile Updated May 10, 2007

    It's not as huge as City Hall's Raffles City or Orchard's Takashimaya. In fact, I find it quite small for a mall. It's just a long shopping mall with almost the same offerings as the aforementioned department stores. The good thing about it is, if you live or stay along Novena, then and you don't feel like going to crowded Orchard Road, Velocity is a better choice. Popular shops and restaurants can be found here and you can buy just about anything here.

    What to buy: Women shoppers may find Velocity appealing because it's got small shops selling affordable shoes, bags and clothings. Chanced upon a shop that sells Hello Kitty cuties! There's lingerie shop, too! Lifestyle! It covers beauty and wellness, sports, fashion, furnishing and household, watches and jewellery.

    What to pay: Just prepare the usual budget when you shop. Even necessities can be bought here.

    StarHub: Mobile SIM

    by cjg1 Updated Mar 11, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You should seriously consider picking up a local SIM for your unlocked GSM mobile. The one I used is from StarHub called a Green prepaid SIM. It goes for SG$18 and provides cheap local calls and SMS as well as many promos. For example they have free IDD to 14 countries which includes the US. Free 10 SMS after sending 5 in a day locally or internationally. It is possible to get both free, international and local each day.

    by UKDaisy Updated Feb 25, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you've seen the 100 Yen shops in Japan, you'll know that it's a place where you can find a whole range of good value Japanese goods. One of these shops is called Daiso, and this chain can be found in several countries. In Singapore, you can find Daiso at Plaza Singapura Mall, next to Dhoby Ghaut MRT. Here you can find goods such as cosmetics, toiletries, hair accessories, stationery and homewares charged at only (Singaporean) $2 per item! Bargain!!!

    Autobacs: Car accessories at Autobacs

    by Skylink Updated Oct 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a picture of Autobacs. It’s one of the largest car accessories shop in Singapore. The 852 bus from Bukit Batok MRT passes the store. From the MRT station, the store is on the left when you are riding the bus. It is next to the Shell station. Shell has recently (2006) entered into a marketing agreement with 7-11 so the sign may change to “Shell / 7-11”.

    Another place recommended by a local for auto accessories is Stamford Tyre in Jurong. My guess is that Stamford Tyre is hard to get to by bus (I rode in a car), unlike Autobacs. If you don’t want to leave the tourist areas, Carrefour in Suntec City (MRT City Hall then walk underground through the City Link Mall) has some car accessories. I am not particularly interested in cars but I had just bought a new car and needed some supplies which is why I went to Autobacs. If you are from the U.S., Autobacs is not much different from Autozone or Pep Boys except that it has more Japanese made interior accessories.

    What to buy: car accessories

    The Shell station is to the right.

    After some search, found following great places to buy stamps.

    1) On Sunday 9am to 1pm, there is a stamp market where more 10 dealers set up tables to sell their stamps at the Kreta Air Community Center, 2nd Floor. Located next to Chinatown Plaza, New Bridge.

    2) Stamp shops located in Chinatown Plaza, New Bridge

    3) Stamp shops at Peninsula Shopping Center, Coleman Street

    4) Stamp shops located at basement floor in Golden Mile Tower (next door to Golden Mile Complex)

    Enjoy checking out and buying stamps. More expensive than Malaysia because of currency but there are more choice and variety.

    Saga of the shoe horn

    by robertgaz Updated Sep 6, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Distraught and forlorn,
    From a broken shoe horn,
    A gift from old Singapore.

    Glueing won’t do,
    Cuz it’s broken in two,
    And I can’t get my foot in the shoe!

    In my haste to get out the front door one night so I wouldn’t miss the opening scene of a comedy production “It’s A Dad’s Thing”, my fat behind launched my right foot onto an unsuspecting shoe horn and broke it in two.

    "So what is so special about this particular shoe horn" you ask? I had a particular look and feel in mind when shopping for one in Singapore last year. Imagine the confused shop assistants when upon asking me “what I was looking for” I replied “a shoe horn”, and they would produce the same only to be informed “it’s not the one I’m looking for”.

    Then I stumbled across a small shop not too far on the right from the NE4 exit in Chinatown where they had these lovely polished red wood shoe horns with mother of pearl inlays and I knew this was the one I had been looking for.

    A very considerate imstress took it upon herself to find a replacement and pounded the pavement in torrential rain to ease my pain. A new one was found and I am again in the possession of an exquisite piece of personal paraphernalia.

    The exquisite replacement It doubles as a back scratcher too

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find some genuine bargains by shopping with the locals at the open air markets which are called Pasam Malam.

    These markets do move around Singapore's suburbs so do check with the locals if they know where they will be held next.

    What to buy: Clothing, household items, jewellery, CD's & DVD's.

    What to pay: Less than the average.

    by purplegal Written Sep 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pleasantly surprised to see a concept store for Table Tennis equipment which includes blades, rubber, glue, shoes, shirts etc. Located at the extreme end of Singapore, Choa Chu Kang, this cute shop adds some color to your shopping stay in Singapore. If you are looking for brands like Joola, Butterfly, Nittaku, TSP, Dr Neubauer, you are right to visit this store. What's more, do ask them about table tennis play as they could arrange for you to play at their club during their stay here. Only for table tennis enthusiasts!!!

    What to buy: Table Tennis equipment

    What to pay: $6-$200

    Jamal Kazura Aromatics: Smells good to me!

    by SPW Updated Jun 25, 2006

    This small shop is wonderful. The proprietor blends perfumes which he sells, as well as various lovely perfume bottles. He is a delightful man, and his prices are very reasonable.

    What to pay: Prices depend on ingredients, and the size of bottles, but are very competitive with "name" perfumes.

    The Proprietor Difficult choices!

    Jurong Point Shopping Centre: A convenient stop on the way to/from Bird Park

    by Ausviet Updated May 16, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you don't want to spend the whole day at Jurong Bird Park, you can stop at Jurong Point Shopping Centre which is located between Boon Lay MRT Station and Boon Lay Bus Interchange. It is a very good suburban shopping mall in Singapore. The best thing about it is the food !. You can find any kind of food you like here. We came here at about lunch time and we saw a Moss Burger Store ( A Japanese fast food chain). We had never seen it before in Australia so we tried it. The fish and rice burgers were very good. I thought it was so good that the McDonald store next door had to sell some similar burgers !. On the top floor is an excellent Asian Food Court that you must eat something here although you are already full !
