Living in... Singapore, Shopping, Uncategorized SHOPPING IN SG 23 December 2006

I have around 100 photos from the past few days of internet-AWOL-ness.. and most are foodie pics 😉 So for now I’ll just post some random ones!


Diane Von Furstenberg – I LOVE her dresses, even though they’re
more flattering on curvier girls. This dress was my fave.

Depressingly, it looked nicer on the model than on me 🙁

Really liked this one too!

Dad liked this one, it’ll be nice for work

Almost got this silk skirt, but it made my bum look really big 🙁

A photo of me taking a photo, haha! I was actually taking
a photo of mum as she was trying on clothes too.

Pretty Christmas tree at Raffles Town Club

We had dinner, then Goreng Pisang for dessert at Raffles Town Club. Yum!

Awesome Royce chocolates from a family friend. Who wants
ol’ Godiva when you can have Royce?! Sooooooooo good :)~

BBQ stingray. Yummy!

Someone kindly explain why these “Australian avocados” are SG$2 (vs SG$2.50 in Australia)
and look better/bigger? Why are Aussie farmers selling their avocados out of the country
for cheaper than what Aussie consumers would pay in the shops?! UGH!!

    Such cute dresses! I’m trying to wear dresses more, they’re way more fun than wearing pants all of the time

    I LOVE the first dress. Do they have a huge variety of dresses at the Taka corner? How much is the first dress?

      I adore it too, love how it’s so unique and also the geometric design. There’s quite a large variety of dresses and some of them (not the very nice ones though!) are on 30% now. The 3 I tried on were about SG$890 I think? (no sale!)

        For something I don’t wear to work, $890 is so overpriced. But I’m still tempted. :p

    The second and third dresses look great on you!

    And how could anything make your bum look big? haha ♥

      That skirt did, or at least it didn’t look as ‘slinky’ as the dresses! It was sooo nice though, I nearly got it 😛

            do it via V-Post! it’s pretty cheap, although it’ll only ship to Singapore…have your parents then remail it to you!

  • jesuisariel posted on December 23, 2006 at 2:00 pm

    I like you in the second and third dresses. Are you getting them?

    • beverly posted on December 23, 2006 at 3:46 pm

      I would if they would go on sale! At SG$890 or so each, I can’t justify them yet.. but I’m tempted 😉

        Get a vPost account or comgateway acccount (as rec’d by K) and get your DVF fix online!

          They’re quite $$ aren’t they? 🙁 I may consider if I really can’t handle the insane prices charged in SG/AU for nice clothes though!

    Love all the DVF dresses that you tried on, especially the second one. At Holt Renfrew we have the blue one but in a wrap version. The dessert looks good, and you have so much chocolate. Anyhow BBQ stingray sounds so exotic.

      You’re so lucky that the prices there are reasonable.. next time I’m in Canada or the States, I’ll have to go on a shopping binge!
