singapore - general discussion

Em, you want to go so you can try on their sizes and not buy?

Bet you will be a hit there.

Prices aint exactly cheaper. HK during final call was not even 50% off for DH boutiques and heard Joyce dont do 50% for DH stuff no more.

dress shoes ill prolly buy on the spot. but i'm not gonna buy the lumiere shoes and other stuff at the same time. sorry if im poor and cant buy everything in a lump at retail price. i didnt mean to offend you or anything of that sort.

Hey no offence. I am just saying no shop will like it if you are there to try the sizes in order to get it cheaper from another place.

what is going down my S town friends and foes,

hope all is well.

What's the weather like this week? Weather.com says daily thunder storms. Is raining throughout the day? Should one pack a really light weight water resistant jacket?

Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks to the original thread starter.. I'm going to be visiting SG for the first time in a couple weeks and I'll probably be checking out a bunch of those spots.

Any recommendations for what to do/where to go over there?

I loved New 7th Storey Hotel. It's a hostel, but it's not bad at all. I stayed there for 2 nights. It was like $20 a night. Perfect location too.

ah, yeah. the singapore crew told me about that. it's being demolished, but I didn't know it was already over. I guess I'm part of the last of an era.

Sorry man.

There are a lot of other choices. Just DONTstay in "Service World Hostel"

--- ghettoest shit I've ever done in my fucking life.

When exactly? Where to go depends on your interests, how long will you be staying?

You missed the members' preview earlier this month for the bazaar sale. 50-80% off on Yohji, Sander, Dries, CDG etc... it's like a threesome with brazilian supermodels.

But Club 21's retail price is often expensive.

Also, any tailors to recommend for alteration of pants? I know CYC, Raffles, Maharaja etc but I'm not sure if their reputation is legit.

does anyone know where to get Obey t-shirts in Singapore?

thanks in advance!

You can get em from almost all the Left Foot outlets. There's one at Far East Plaza, and another at Orchard Cineleisure.

As for shopping, most of the places at the start of the thread are still valid. For up to date information about sales and where to find certain brands etc, visit www.plussixfive.com.

seriously club21 is for people who doesnt do internet shopping......ridiculously overpriced. Their sale items are the retail price in other places, I understand they need to earn some profits but come on............
