Shopping on Orchard Road, Singapore

Our last full day in Singapore was spent doing – what else – shopping!

Wheelock Place, Orchard Rd

Singapore is a Mecca for shopping. But on this past trip to Singapore, most of our time was spent with family and friends. Whether it was eating at Annie’s Aunt’s place, going to Noble House for dim sum, Imperial Treasure for Peking duck, or Rider’s Cafe for Western food, we didn’t really have time to ourselves to just shop.

So for our final full day in S’pore, we left the kids with Grandma and took a cab down to Orchard Road. Here, block after block of the glitziest malls are lined up for your shopping pleasure. We started at the newest and glitziest of them all, Ion Orchard.

Annie’s mum is from Singapore, and we haven’t seen the Singapore side of the family in over 4 years. With the long weekend created by the Wesak Day and Gawai holidays in Sarawak, we had a great excuse to book a trip over to see the relatives. On the first day we arrived, Annie’s aunt invited all the cousins over to her house for some popiah and other good food.

We had a good time hanging out at Aunty’s house and catching up with all the relatives. In the late afternoon, we had to catch a taxi to our next destination. Here’s Esther and Daniel’s reactions to what they saw:
