Orchard Road.. shopping mecca.. and now, ION Orchard:)
The first shop ever on Orchard Road was TANGS founded in 1934 and established on Orchard Road in the 1950s.
Orchard Road is flanked by pedestrian malls. The latest addition, ION Orchard has the distinction of also being a future residential area and has a fantastic, modern facade.
I really like this place – it looks sleek, cool and calculated. A true Ice Maiden.
All the my favourite shops under one roof, i.e. over 300 retail, F&B and entertainment stores, which includes luxury brands, international brands and popular high street fashion and lifestyle stores all housed in funky, innovative retailing concept stores. Paradise!
Anyway, the most appealing thing to me on the menu was the fact that this place offers lunch specials such as raw oysters + a glass of prosecco at only SD45. What a steal.
However, since my stomach was tender and empty, I went for the Oceanic Platter instead. Oh, and also, a glass of prosecco, of course.

Custo Barcelona was created by two brothers, Custo (surprise, surprise..) & David Dalmu.
The outfits look good, wear comfortably and most importantly, do not cost an arm and a leg.
I hope Custo comes to KL soon;)
Finally, I checked out SINS – Singapore’s multi-award winning chocolatiers. Apparently SINS is famous for coming up with new ideas in creating unusual tastes in chocolates.
I tried their dark chocolate cookies for a quick snack, in case I got hungry later at the hotel. Crunchy when eaten fresh, and with a rich ambrosial flavour – this later made the perfect midnight snack with milk.
(Oh dear, how will I stay slim on this trip I wonder.. :P)
