Starry-eyed in Singapore (II)

So far we have bought:

1. 2 pairs of black kitten-heeled shoes for work
2. 2 pairs of Converse sneakers
3. 1 pair of white trainers
4. 7 anime DVD boxsets
5. 1 gem-studded pendant
6. 3 new books (2 by Neil Gaiman!)
7. 2 bottles of cologne
8. 3 tee-shirts (1 of which says 'I like Singapore lah!')
9. 2 sundresses
10. 1 Playstation 2 game

I must say that we are being very restrained with our shopping. I haven't bought any bags or strappy sandals yet!

We have also accomplished the following:
1. Met up with 35 friends
2. Eaten 37 out of 40 items on our 'Must Eat' list
3. Been fashionably late for a wedding dinner
4. Blogged from the airport (I'm awaiting a flight to Phuket)
5. Been to the Singapore Zoo

Will hopefully update with pictures soon!

Your shopping list leaves me with many questions, such as:
1) Aren't books cheaper in the UK?
2) Anime boxsets! But I thought cheaper to buy online? (Sorry, very Singaporean I know, keep talking about cheap, cheap)
3) Is the Playstation 2 game real or fake? :) Ha ha, no need to answer, just teasing you.

Congratulations on the extremely productive vacation. 35 friends in such a short time is impressive indeed! Or maybe you cheated by using the wedding dinner, hmm?

A belated word of caution: if you've bought anime boxsets here that are made in Hong Kong or Taiwan, you've probably got yourself a pirated copy of the anime, albeit a government-sanctioned one. You'll find that the English subtitles will very likely stink (to put it mildly), and this will be exacerbated if you have even a modicum of understanding of the Japanese language.

If you've got an Odex one (although I understand that Odex only produces VCDs now) then it's not pirated, but the subtitles will still stink.

Thirty-seven out of forty on your food list !! Colour me impressed. And a little peckish. :-)

I have 10 days in Singaping starting next Tuesday. We will see how I go. I don't know that I have a food wish list yet, but maybe I will just need to make it up as I go along. Crystal Jade porridge? Mmm. Carrot cake, black style? Ya. Yong tau fu? OH YA. Kaya toast? YES PLEASE.

Oh, also, I am a little bummed that you are heading back out here again, because I had briefly entertained thoughts of the comic hijinks that would ensue were we to pick each other out of the crowd at, like, Taka or something.

1. Books are generally cheaper in the UK unless they are selling 3 for 2 at Borders!

2. Anime boxsets are very difficult to get online in the UK unless one is happy to pay enormous shipping costs.

3. It is real! Then I realised that the game can only be played on US-compatible platforms! Argh! I had to give it away.

4. If I cheated by using the wedding dinner, I would have had to say that I met up with 235 friends!

ketsugi: Your words of wisdom fall on deaf ears! Hahaha! The anime boxsets have been purchased from HMV, government stickers and all.

D W: I will post pictures up as soon as I've got my act together. :)

stellou: 10 days? 10 days? I found that 10 days was only long enough to make me wish I had more time off.
