    Lifebaby Boutique: Black and White Clothes for Kids

    by nomadig Written Feb 24, 2005

    All garments for kids are always available only in very bright, vivid or pastel colours. The only shop that sells pure white and black garments is LIFEbaby in Singapore.

    The garments are refreshingly different from the mass; how about a black baby t-shirt with image of Mao Zedong? Their signature pieces promote made-in-Asia, designed-by-Asians attitude, and provide a real choice for parents that care about stylish clothes for their little people.

    Don't get me wrong, the clothes are also cute, but in a different way. Check out by yourself. The garments are exporeted to several countries in the world. Enquire from the store.

    Best Denki: Appliances, Appliances, and More Appliances

    by nomadig Written Feb 9, 2005

    If you're looking for some appliance that is not available on your home country, Best Denki is a good place to hunt it down. The store seems to stock much of everything imaginable for household and personal use. The prices are set here, so need / opportunity to haggle.

    Some of the sales clerks know the stuff and others don't. The latter ones may happily read the specs from the combined price tag and specsheet, and think that they have served you well. Ask to see the manual, as they'll usually open a box for browsing the manual.

    Just remember the weight limitations for checked baggage, as the transportation fees for, say, a stove might become a tad too high.

    Bukit Timah Skopping Centre & Beauty World: Bukit Timah Area

    by redhotwax Updated Jan 14, 2005

    I know most tourists will probably never look further than Orchard Rd, which is okay if you don't mind paying too much.

    My tip is, take a cab away from the city, and visit the Bukit Timah area! If you're looking for electronics, this is the place to go. I'm quite sure you will get much, much lower prices than downtown, and it'll be an experience on its own to visit this shopping centre. I used to live nearby this place, and when I needed something, I always went to either one of these two shopping centres.

    There's also a 'wet market' nearby, visit that to complete your 'local' experience! You can buy just about anything there, from snakes to fresh fish. Trust me, just browsing around is fun!

    What to buy: Pretty much anything is available at these places, but clothes and electronics are the most common goods.

    What to pay: ALOT less than downtown! Haggle with the storekeepers, you can get really good deals.

    What to buy: JEWELLERY: You can buy gold in singapore for a really good price and it is all 22ct + so it looks really good and they have great designs. I would recommend you going to PO HENG in parkway shopping centre. You can also trade in some gold if you already have some from there. For stirling silver go to PERLINIS SILVER they are everywhere in all the shopping centres and it is so cheap and if you have some of their jewellery already they will clean it for you.

    ELECTRONICS: singapore is a great place to buy electronics. it is really good quality so it wont break down on you when you get back home! you are better off getting electronics in shopping centres preferebly in department stores. just check around for prices and it wont hurt if they can give you a better price. if it is the last one they should definetly give you a better price.

    MUSIC: cds are also really cheap compared to australia as an average album in australia will be about $30-$40(AUS). in singapore it is about $15-$20 (SING) there are heaps of places you can get cds again if you want to make sure just go to a decent looking place

    Most places: Dodgy gear

    by phil_uk_net Updated Aug 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perhaps this should have been a Warnings or Dangers tip?
    I often feel that Singaporeans are caught in the middle of an Asian/Western identity crisis. On the one hand there are lots of Chinese who naturally want to do a deal, however dodgy it may be. On the other hand, living in a Nanny State like Singapore, everything is highly regulated and official.
    The result is that a lot of the dodgy dealing goes on 'under the counter' so to speak. Often I would be walking along the street and I'd hear a "Pssst, hey you!". This would invariably be a Chinese guy trying to sell me some questionable contraband. These people only pick on Europeans it seems and leave the locals alone. At Newton Hawker Centre the guy in the picture, seeing that we were obviously a couple of 'white boys', came across to reveal several pairs of fake sunglasses secreted about his person. My brother is modelling a pair of false Oakleys and humouring him while I took the pic. He reminded us of the Chinese character that Benny Hill used to play years ago.

    This is the place to shop

    by Lozza_9 Written Apr 14, 2003

    If you love shopping this is the place to come. Even though I didn't want to travel all the way to Signapore to go shopping, I couldn't help but have a look at some of the lovely shopping malls they have.

    Anywhere: Why don't they have this where I come from?

    by knerten Written Aug 12, 2005

    Very strange taste, but worth a try...extremely minty and not very Pepsi-ish, but I guess Singaporeans like it this way.

    In a lot of places you can buy a dress, that is very similar to the oryginal Singapore dresses, but much cheaper.
