Okay, so shopping on Orchard Road in Singapore had to be one of my favourite activities in Sinapore ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I come from Perth “city” where the shopping experiences are okay, full of franchises, and very repetitive – you will generally see the same stores all throughout the metro area. Orchard Road in Singapore was full of variety, and the malls were big, dry,ย and airconditioned. Now I can manage the heat in Singapore (I experience much hotter in summer in Perth), but I cannot cope with the humidity – dizziness and headaches even while gulping down water. Thank goodness for the aircon. The shops also kept us dry from all the torrential thunderstorms that happened almost every day of our stay (I enjoy thunderstorms so that was quite fun!).

Books, clothes, accessories, fun stuff, computer and console games (kept the partner happy ;))…Ahhh it was great fun ๐Ÿ˜€

My partner lived on these in Singapore! The icecreams cost $1 Singapore and you get a thick rectangular chunk of yummy icecream wedged in between two wafers (or rainbow bread…but I eat so slowly I imagine it would go soggy for me :P). They had all kinds of flavours, from the traditional chocolate, raspberry swirl, mocha chip, to Durian, Honeydew, Red Bean and the Sweet Yam in the above photo (yes, it is purple, and yes, it is actually really nice!).

Mr Icecream Man...the photo is blurry because it was dark and I had no tripod (longer exposure = more shake :P) but I wanted to show it anyway ๐Ÿ˜€

You buy the icecream from street vendors like in the photo above. We found several vendors along Orchard Road, and there are often about 3-4 on Clarke Quay near the Swissotel Merchant Court (where we stayed). To get to the part of Clarke Quay I am talking about you can just get the MRT (mass rapid transit = underground train) to the Clarke Quay stop, then follow the signs that will take you to the Clarke Quay exit.

If you go to Singapore, make sure you get some of these cheap yummy treats. You will definitely feel like it with their hot weather!
