I was finishing the filling up my first ever balikbayan box, I went to Suntec to scour RSH for Ipanema slippers (Note: Prices go as low as $5 for an Ipanema, especially on their last day of sale but I wasn\’t able to come. I\’m not even sure if they lowered it down to $5). Unfortuantely, my relatives\’ feet sizes are small from the available sizes (9 and 10). I stuck to the plan of going to Bugis if I come out empty handed. I decided to walk since it was just a few meters away.
I\’m familiar with the place because my wedding venue is within the vicinity. I decided to stop by Subway for a quick bite. I was surprised that Subway is conjoined with a coffee shop. So far, its the biggest subway joint that I have ever been to.
|The place inside is very spacious.|
|I\’m not adventurous to try coffee on that day. Though the siphoned coffee sounds interesting. I\’m not sure if its connected to Oromo Coffee Company with a very good cause for making coffee.|
My usual $5 dollar combo: Cold Cut Trio
|Why the face bebeh?!|
After my meal, off I go to Bugis passing through Hotel Intercontinental. I noticed there\’s a newly opened store (I think?!) that sells asymmetrical designed clothes (meaning: weird and unique looking but looks awesome when I wear it hehehe). I wasn\’t able to get the shop\’s exact name. All I see is the Japanese character in the hangers.
I will definitely go back and check out their while merchandise. They also sell accessories and handbags.
I go to Bugis Street for the chocolates. I buy them at this store behind Bugis Street beside the durian stand. The store is somewhat like Valu$ in Toa Payoh. The products are mostly cheap especially if you\’re going to compare it with Choc-Spot in Lucky Plaza. But be very careful to check the expiration date of the food. I haven\’t encountered anything expired. I have been buying my pasalubong there ever since.
As of this writing, my box is on it\’s way to PHL. I just hope and pray that nothing bad happens to it.
