Out and About......Holiday Post #4 - Singapore #4
It is interesting, as I write these posts about our holiday I realise that we did so much. Here I am only on Day 3 of our 4 day Singapore stay and I can still see several posts to come! lol!
On this day, in the morning I went to the Gardens by the Bay (that will be next post) and in the afternoon I was out and about around the Marina Bay shopping mall and the famous Orchard Road.
Now, in Singapore they seem to be mad about macarons and tea!
This is the entrance to a macaron shop - gorgeous, isn't it?
Everywhere you went there was this teahouse chain called TWG. Can you see the huge menus they had? There were literally hundreds of tea blends to choose from and you could pay as much as $170 for a cup of tea!
Needless to say, I was a bit more modest in my tea drinking! The tea was served in these gorgeous pots and my new friend, Julie, and I had to try some macarons.
We resisted the gorgeous array of other cakes, though.
I also seemed to spend a lot of time wandering around the Marina Bay Sands shopping mall. It was three levels of up market shops. On the lowest level there were canals and you could actually take a gondola ride!
Yet another TWG teahouse.
Toast box seemed to be very popular with the locals. One morning I saw dozens of people lined up to just to get breakfast.
I took this photo of a poster at the Fossil Store for one of my young girlfriends at work!
..... and the Swarovski store was so pretty!
There were so many other upmarket stores - Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, you name it - they were there.
Well, going to have some breakfast, a little stitching and then water aerobics (it is only 7.30 am here on Sunday morning). Then later a little baking and lots more stitching!
Have a lovely Sunday everyone,
