Willing to Get Lost in the Great Singapore Sale 2008!!!

Written by Jayvee Fernandez

Equinox Singapore

Wow, Equinox Club (photo). That’s as far as I went to seeing the night life of Singapore last year. This year it’s going to be different! Realized that I’ve been so burned out from a lot of things going on with work, so I asked a favor if I could extend a business trip on my expense. Nokia Connect 2008 is happening on the 16th and 17th in Singapore and knowing how that goes, the party is going to be a blast. The funny thing was that I almost got double booked — LG scheduled me to go for Communicasia but I had said yes to Nokia already. With that, the famous and ever reliable proprietor of TechnograPH is going to Communicasia 2008 to cover the latest phones and services! 🙂

But June 2008 is also the month of the Great Singapore Sale and yes, I’m going to get lost in this great sale, as well as get lost in the huge shopping list of my beauty blogger partner as well as her friends. 🙂

In terms of what I’m looking to get, well nothing fancy. I’m on the lookout for camera accessories such as a semi-ball tripod which allegedly sells for only P2,500.00 and a Nikkor remote for only P600.00. In terms of brands I’m curious to check out the Giordano store as I’ve noticed that Giordano Singapore has one of the best – if not the best selection in Asia, in the same way that Zara’s selection in the Philippines is a hundred times better than Malaysia, Indonesia or Singapore.

I supposedly booked myself at a little place in Little India but Mia came to my rescue and offered my nephew’s bed as the kids are back to school in Manila. Mia, you’re a lifesaver, and you can have all the Pure Foods hotdogs and corned beef I can carry!

So Calvin wrote about the sale, a head on collision with the first few days. Well, I’m going to be there right smack ready for the PC Show (I missed Toy Universe! and seeing Kung Fu Panda in person) and Calvin’s post was very helpful. Between shopping at Orchard Road to Sim Lin Square, I’m also trying to make time to meet up with some of my dad’s former classmates from AIM, and do a whole day Zoo and Night Safari tour…

… But the most important itinerary is to EAT AT PEPPER LUNCH SINGAPORE. 😀

  • wow! lots of plans! hope you have a grand time there. I didn’t know kung fu panda at that time so I just shrugged the event and went pass by it. hehehe.

  • I was just there last weekend. We hardly noticed the time. Great sale at Giordano. Aussino offers huge discounts too. Line up early if you want to get into Gucci, LV. And if you use your Mastercard, you can get taxi vouchers worth S$25 for every 300 purchase. With cash, you can get S$20 worth of taxi vouchers.

    I just got back but I’d like to go back. Great sale talaga! Pack light so you have a lot of room in your bag for shopping!

  • i already did! in fact i tried the sukiyaki beef pepper lunch 2 days ago in suntec mall beside the fountain! i swear, the quality is so controlled – it tastes the same as the Philippines!

  • See You at Communic Asia 2008…

    I Just arrived in beautiful Singapore last night. So, yes I’m starting this blog from outside the Philippines.
    I know that there is The Great Singapore Sale 2008. But I’m not here in Singapore for that.
    With the invitation of Microsoft MVP …
