The only real Swiss Butchery in Singapore is now called "Huber's" and is headed by the former Managing Director of Swiss Butchery (a Swiss) and his two sons.


I think the Swiss Butchery is now found in Coronation Plaza.



That's an ALSO AT, not instead of..... and there is another in Tanglin so totally three. Huber's are in Dempsey now, as well as their one in the "Goh & Goh" on Upp. Bkt. Timah.

First time to exit the Orchard MRT since Ion opened and I needed to go to Tang's...took me a while to get there. The signs were confusing (I just came out of Ion and I saw a sign that said "ION" pointing away from where I came from) and the layout is crazy...

...I knew I should have made that left in Albuquerque...

Heard of an invention called the "lift"?

:lol:



My problem with "lifts" is they are too full of people fit enough to "walk" that there is no space left for pushchairs.


Actually, for some strange reasons, nobody ever seems to take the lifts in Ion. Maybe its in a secluded area. Being a super lazy person and knowing exactly which shops I want, I always head straight to the lift in Ion. :oops:

Oh, the toilet in Ion seems pretty fancy too! Its kinda like a hotel toilet, with a serving lady inside.


huh are u sure???why I went inside the toliet no serving lady ?

But I have spotted the cleaning ladies a few times wiping the floor right next to me while I was standing there doing my business. She didn't seem to be bothered, so neither was I.

The lifts are totally secluded so when we go with a stroller, we have to literally look for it behind every wall!!! The escalators are annoying too how it skips floors and sad that they didn't integrate the more high street stores with the really nice ones above ground. We love ThreeSixty Market from Hong Kong, but the prices are absolutely outrageous. Why can't we get a normal priced market here!!!! It's amazing the premium you pay here for just an organic piece of fruit or a product from the UK.

Supply and demand. You're not in the UK and most Singaporeans do not want UK products, so those few who do need to pay all the freight costs. If you want "normal" prices, eat what the locals do and shop where they do... and did you know that even NTUC FairPrice has an organic section these days?
