Singapore equals shopping for a lot of people.
Budget, multiple toddlers and a general lack of interest meant I didn't really hit the high street on our holiday. But I did have one lovely morning with my sister in Tiong Bahru where, after our requisite coffee and pastry at the Tiong Bahru Bakery, we went in search of a bookshop I wanted to check out, and chanced upon a beautiful design/interiors shop as well. It was called Strangelets - its tag line "Militant Craftsmanship." I asked if I could take some pictures, and the woman behind the counter said, "It's too pretty not to."
I wasn't polite enough to ask next door in BooksActually. I just snapped away. Oh, how I love a beautiful, eclectic, overstuffed bookstore.
I think I'd find myself in this little corner of the city quite regularly if I ever lived in Singapore.
