Singapore & KL Trip 2010 aka Annual Pre-CNY Shopping Trip

It is unavoidable - LS and I have once again go on a shopping trip. This is time we have included Singapore into the itinerary and also a new travel companion to Singapore - let's call her D.We three stayed at this Aqueen Hotel at Balestier Road. It is still quite new and clean. The room is really small but we sort of expected that already. The shower toilet room is just a partition of glass... kind of see through... haha.. thank goodness, we are all girls. D's Singapore (not Singaporean) friend, SH, brought us around and taught us how to get to the nearest MRT - Tao the HDB Hub. Coincidentally HBD Hub is celebrating its 50th anniversary and they have this really cool tiles thingy on the wall..and everytime we passed there, there are people looking at it..analysing the tiles...
Our first shopping place is Ion and to be honest, I cant afford to shop there. Can only window shopping. SH brought us to window shop at LV, Burberry, Gucci etc... Right now..not possible. I hope it is possible to really shop there in the future. :p
Lunch is... Nothing special lo. The next day, instead of shopping at Orchard Road - we did some shopping at Orchard Road the night before, we went to Woodlands and Boon Lay to shop. The items on sale actually look more affordable but... I didn't went all crazy la. Btw, we had Mos Burger for brunch. I think it is safe to say that we shopped till we drop at Boon Lay. My hands actually hurt from carrying all the shopping bags. SH treated us dinner at Ding Tai Fung - which I remember that last time I went to Singapore, I sampled its xiao long baos and chicken soup. Refer here. This time, I got to sample more dishes. Hehe... Erm... The final day, we went to Orchard Road again to see if we can shop for more stuff. Our flight is at night so... no hurry. We even arrived at the airport earlier than expected so we went to have dinner at Sakae Teppanyaki. Not bad... I think I had my first taste of foie gras. :p The chawa mushi is cooked in big onion skin... kind of cool. :p

KL part of the shopping trip - coming soon.
