I casually mentioned that I haven't been to Singapore in a long time then dad spontaneously agreed to bring us to Haji Lane yesterday. Super happy cos I've been wanting to check out this place!
Haji Lane is a street that sells designer clothes and one-of-a-kind pieces. Damn hipster can. You can't NOT want to go in and have a look though. All the different coloured shops and deco make the street look so pretty!
I've heard a lot about the cheap clothes over here so I was pretty excited to get some SGD5-10 clothes. Bad luck for me though, I couldn't find any :( My sister got 2 dresses for SGD10. Got a bottle of nail polish for free some more. CHEAP OR WHAT.
Piedra Negra, a Mexican restaurant. They have an outlet in JB
too (not sure if it's still in operation though). Most pubs and restaurants have Happy Hour around 4-8pm if you're looking for something to drink.
Arab Street was just next to Haji Lane so we went there too. Very Morrocan/ Turkish feel! There's also a Children's Toy Museum.
We had some snacks at Istanbul Grill's and Bar. First time trying Turkish food. To our surprise, its delicious! We were told the chef is Chinese, but the food is authentic. Don't convert and it's actually quite affordable lah... XD
Meza Dip Platter. SGD14.90, comes with 5-6 kinds of dips and Balloon Bread. The sauces are made of chickpeas, eggplant, yoghurt, totally no meat. The traditional bread, baked in a charcoal oven, is so fluffy yet crisp!
Chicken Shish Kebab, SGD16.90. DAMN YUMMY. Even Turkish rice tastes better than normal rice.
Hot Apple Turkish Tea, SGD5.50 a pot. Sour, but I like it. Sis finds it disgusting though.
While waiting for dinner, we played with Bubble Balloons. Anyone remembers this from their childhood??
Three-way top & checkered shorts from Berjaya Times Square. The shorts were only RM10 XD
Sis's polka dot bag from China
Charles & Keith gladiator sandals
After dinner, we went to CHIJMES (I still have no idea what that stands for). You'd think it's a normal church from the outside, but there's actually a lot of cool bars and fine dining restaurants! The interior reminds me of my high school, heh (Convent JB FTW). Someone hosted their wedding in the church, so pretty and dreamy *_*
Feels great to spend time w my family again after so long. :) Appreciate what you have and have NO MONDAY BLUES tomorrow!
