You can try the made-in-singapore glass jewelery by SimonT at the gd floor of Centerpoint. Isn't Chongqing one of the areas affected by the earthquake?

agree with taxico - I bring back bak kwa usually, it's a hit back home for most, even though for myself, in the words of Ice Cube, "I don't eat pig" anymore

outside of that though I struggle for other souvenier ideas

taxico wrote:there aren't much "made in singapore" stuff other than most food... how about local barbequed dried pork? (aka "bak kwa")

i like the one from bee hock guan - one store at chinatown (new bridge road) and one at ang mo kio central (behind the bus interchange).

mmm... dried pork.

What about Merlion chocolate? It is a Singapore icon.

Hope this helps.

The coffee table book "OVER SINGAPORE" nice shots from a helicopter covering the whole island.

You can collect books of all the places you have visited,

Over Hong Kong, Over London etc.

Though the books are probably printed in China :roll:
