    Borders at Wheelock Plaza is a good bookshop with an extensive fiction section (but, sadly, no obvious Asian literature section). It opens late as well.

    Kinokuniya - at several locations - is a bookshop that extremely annoyingly shrinkwraps everything which means that it is impossible to browse. The staff said that I could open anything, but it is just not user-friendly. I noticed that Kinokuniya is largely empty, compared to the hordes at Borders and Times. Perhaps there's a message there somewhere.

    I understand that Select Books is the best source for Asian books in Singapore. I aven't had time to get to it, which is no bad thing given that I am already five kilos over the weight limit for my plane home.

    Wheelock Place houses Marks and Spencer, Borders Books Music and Café and Nokia Care Centre.

    Hungry from all the shopping? You will be swarmed by the wide choice of cuisines served by Borders Bistro and café, Sakae Sushi, Nooch Noodle Bar, Olio Dome and NYDC

    Wheelock Center: lots of shops and restaurants.

    Lots of shops and restaurants

    The Wheelock Center, located on Orchard Road is most known for it's conical roof design. Inside, there are a lot of great shops and restaurants. One highlight is Borders books.

    For restaurants, there is dome, borders bistro(quite good) nooch, nydc and a few others.

    Squeezed Apples

    by nomadig Written Feb 21, 2005

    Apple has a branded outlet in Wheelock Place mall. You can buy some Apple merchandise, such as iPODs, from any bigger vendor in generic IT malls, but this store has the whole repertoure from Apple.

    The store is surprisingly small, busy and loudy. All the stuff is crammed into a miniscule space that is filled with people trying out the toys. Unlike in Apple flagship stores, there are no experts available and software selection is limited.

    Singapore uses US keyboard and Apple refuses to provide any other keyboards. This is a bummer, as all the computers are much cheaper than in Europe.
