The Adelphi: High End Electronics Shopping
The Adelphi describes itself as a lifestyle mall. It's packed with electronic shops selling high end audio/video gadgets and equipment that carry brands such as Krell, Rotel and Harman Kardon, among others.
What to buy: For audiophiles and home entertainment enthusiasts, this is the place to be. I will not be surprised if you spend half a day here checking out equipment and asking for advice from the very knowledgeable sales staff.
I also saw a shop that sells high end camera equipment, such as Hassleblads and Leicas.
What to pay: For a Rotel RCD1072 (an HDCD player), I spent SGD800. It retails about US$699 (SGD1,100) online and in the Philippines.Related to:

There are also shops selling men's and women's street clothing. Lots of designs of men's t-shirts starting from US$7 each. Women's clothes here tend to be slightly more expensive than at Far East Plaza but the designs are different so it's not really fair to compare.
Quite a few shops selling mobile phones and mobile phone accessories. Also a good place to make spectacles.
Far East Plaza: If You Love Street Fashion...
I LOVE shopping... but I would rather not spend a bomb on trendy items, seeing how they don't stay in fashion for very long. That's why I shop a lot at Far East Plaza... here you can find very cute, trendy shoes for just US$10 or less! Lots of small shops selling women's clothing, men's clothing, accessories, shoes, bags... The latest peasant skirts can be found at many shops at Far East Plaza for US$10. Besides the basement, there are also more shops in the other floors of the building. Don't forget to go to "This Fashion" located near the taxi stand -some of the clothes do look kind of cheap, but if you look hard enough, there are some pretty good buys here.

FF Kids & FF Baby: Inexpensive Clothes for Kids
Buying clothes for a child can be a costy and frustrating experience. FF Kids and FF Baby stores come to rescue, as the clothes both look good and don't cost a fortune. The range is from the newborn to the early teens.
The quality of the clothes is good, and there is a lot of variety in styles and colours. Most of the clothes are, however, strongly coloured with the plumbing of the kid. There are a few unisex garments, but these are really an exception.
no names over each stand: vegetable market at Larkin Terminal in Johor
It's crowded. Prices seem reasonable. However, tourists usually have no need to buy fresh vegetables. If you want to see Johor city, you should get off the SBS 170 bus at the Malaysian checkpoint upon entering Malaysia. When you return, it is difficult to get from the Malaysian checkpoint to Johor city. So visit the city first then go to Larkin Terminal to get the SBS bus.
What to buy: vegetables, newspapers, McDonald's, some cheap clothes.
