DAY 2 - ORCHARD RD

Second day in Singapore and what else is there to do but...shopping! Grandpa is out and about with us. The plan is to do a bit of shopping at ION and then walk down Orchard Rd at night to see the christmas lights (and meet up with Grandma).

Uncle Andy gave us a lift to the metro, reminds me of Grandpa Simpson.

ION SHOPPING CENTRE

I believe this is a relatively new shopping centre on Orchard Rd. 

ION Orchard brings together the world’s best-loved brands in flagship, concept and lifestyle stores over eight levels of intelligently designed shopping space. Have a unique shopping experience at over 330 retail, F&B and lifestyle stores...In addition to a coveted stable of brands, an extensive food hall offers visitors a myriad of food choices ranging from local favourites to international cuisines...ION Orchard offers more than 110 dining concepts over eight floors...

Trip Advisor

My first meal (above) Wonton with pork.

 

My second meal, Pho. Not too bad...didn't have high hopes :p

 

Daiso. $2 items

 

Walked past a few Subways now, always empty.

 

Not a real Apple store. The staff look like Apple Geniues, except with red t-shirts.

 

 

ORCHARD RD

If you only had a few hours in Singapore, i'd take a walk down Orchard Rd. The atmosphere is amazing. Avoid if you don't like crowds.

Spanning almost 2.2 km, Orchard Road is a swanky, tree-lined one-way boulevard flanked by distinctive shopping malls and hotels.The shopping belt comprises nearly 800,000 sq m of shops and restaurants and promises to please any taste or budget with its iconic malls which boast the full works - from opulent brands to high street fashion, and from exclusive restaurants to fast food joints.It is a Great Street to shop, dine, stay, play, work, and live.

Orchard Rd Christmas lights. These extend down the whole road.

 

When the timer reachers 0, run.

 

Dinner time! Stopped at a random place just off Orchard Rd. (above Chicken Rice, below Congee)

It's official, tastes exactly the same as Australia.
