Le Grenier a Pain, its brochure said that it is the first authentic French bakery in Singapore. I bought some mini bread to try and it was quite nice.
Aston Specialities, selling western food and heard from my brother that they are famous for their steaks and has another branch in East Coast.
Esprit Outlet, sells past season clothes and other items at cheaper prices. My mum bought a nice bag for only $59.90, the original price was $130+
Daiso Japan is my favourite store and everything in the store are selling for only $2!!! I have been hoping that they would have a branch nearby and my wish has really come true :> My mum and hubby also like their products and we bought alot of interesting and useful stuff home yesterday. Now i don't have to go to the Daiso branches at IMM, Plaza Singapura or Vivocity which are so far from my place. I could not resist taking some pictures of its products to share with everyone:
Nice boxes, i really like the black box with yellow flower design and ended up buying it ;>
I also bought this cute pink and red color strips box to store my cds
Kopitiam foodcourt, i really like the food at the Korean food stall and had bbq chicken set (choice of spicy or non-spicy) for lunch and chicken soup for dinner!!!
Chicken soup (non-spicy)
MOF Japanese Sweets & Coffee, we went for desserts after dinner and it was a great dinning experience! There are no service charge and you have to order and pay at the cashier and during their soft launch, there is a 10% discount but i'm not sure when the promotion would end.
I'm tempted to try the sandwich which looks delicious and would do it on my next visit
