Following on my guides to Stockholm, Hong Kong and Kowloon, I thought I should do one for Singapore, with a few touristy shots thrown in.
One of the members of Stashbusting Sewalong 2014, Belinda, lives in Singapore and she sent me a couple of pages of very explicit instructions about where to go for fabrics and notions. Belinda had suggested a visit to the People’s Park Complex in Chinatown and I have to say that this was well worth the trip. We walked from our hotel, but Bugis is the nearest MRT.
Belinda offered to spend an afternoon shopping; I didn’t need to think twice about that generous offer. I know I have shown a similar photo previously, but we look so darned delighted with ourselves in this one that I thought I needed to share.

Absolutely agree about Singapore. We had 10 days there and everyone said “what will you do?”. There’s still a list we didn’t get to, and not just sewing related! I did get to Arab Street, amazing, but not to some of the others you found so they go on the list for next time. Gardens by the Bay is wonderful, I could have taken up residence on Cloud Mountain.
We only had 5 days and it wasn’t enough (even though we go often), so we’re going back next year for another “hit”. Cloud Mountain was a bit chilly but very beautiful.
Hey Sue. Thanks for this post. I’ll be heading to a few of these places when we visit Singers later this month.
Ooh, I hope to see lots of photos of you in exotic locales!
