Come Take a Trip With Me

Yesterday I finally got to visit Haji Lane! It nearly happen as I looked out the window and it was pouring cats and dogs! Fortunately, by the time I got to Bugis, the rain had stopped. Thus Ezra and I made our way to Haji with precarious footsteps on slippery pathways.

Before I get on and on about my little excursion trip. Let me rave about my new sailor skirt. I had finally finished sewing it after procrastinating for 2 weeks... and am very happy with the results! The skirt has an elastic band which makes it uber comfy and the white stripes are strips of white velvet sewn on. If anyone is interested in getting one custom made for herself, it's 50SGD. You can choose the colour of the fabric as well as your preferred length! More photos will be provided if needed. So drop me an email if you would like one too!

Back to Haji Lane... there are quite a few number of very beautifully furnished boutiques along this small street. But Ezra only took me to the ones that he knew that I would like, which were still quite a few of them... =D I didn't manage to take a pictures of all the boutiques, but here are a few must visits recommended by yours truly.

Pluck has a yummy range of ice cream, my favourite being butterscotch&pecan.

So far, one of the best decorated boutiques, besides Collage which has a fish tank made out of an old bath tub. Too bad I couldn't take a picture of that, but that place is another must visit! Oh by the way, I bought a very pretty skirt which will be in my next entry =) Bet yer all will love it too!

White Room does have apparel for women but it was more of the menswear that I thought was appealing.

Salad has this gorgeous mirror for 106SGD. I really want it but I'm totally skint this month! Bah!


So that's it for my little trip to Haji Lane. Hopefully I'm gonna get to go Books Actually on Ann Siang Road. Lately they have been getting alot of magazine coverage and I want to find out why.

Happy mid week
