Places for men to shop in Singapore

Post by Wellman » Mon, 30 Nov 2009 11:30 am

Hi,
I'm a man and I'm not going to lie, I hate shopping. However it's coming up to Christmas and it needs to be done as I have a big family to shop for before going home to Ireland. Is there anywhere in Sing where I can get:

-presents for all ages
-relatively cheap (eg a DFO?)
-no big crowds
-even fakes at low prices
-etc....

Thanking You.

Mustapha looks interesting. What kind of things do they sell there?

Everything. Literally.

Want Rambutans, can.

Want Rolex? can.

Perfumes? can.

Want Gold jewelry, also can. (real gold) Perfumes

Levi's, Wranglers, Appliances, electronic goods of all types.

You want it? They probably got it.

But it's a rabbits warren of floors, aisles and throngs of people.

Worth a trip in any case.

Easy choice this: City Square Mall (next to Farrer Park MRT).

No crowds at all, very pleasant (and spacious :) ) experience.

Actually, if you head down to Orchard on Sat morning (i.e. 10am - 12noon), its fairly quiet and most of the shops are opened! Its probably one of the few moments when you forget that you are in Orchard! After lunch time, you can forget it! Some parts of Orchard is still fairly quiet on Sunday morning but they get crowded very quickly because its the "off-day" for filipino maids, if I am not wrong.

Of course, the obvious choice is to shop during weekdays morning and between 2-4pm.

Nothing beats a Sunday afternoon disco packed with the ladies. :)

Discothèque aka dance club.

Go to a place like Naughty Girl in Orchard Towers on Sunday around lunchtime and you'll see what I mean.
