post #41091 of 55224
My day yesterday was ok until around 3.03 pm.

Then my horse in the sweep got shot.

Today I had to argue that he came last and that despite being now dead he was alive when race finished.

So I collected $2.

Then last night a front tooth broke off.

Hi Gents,

Singapore on business next week. Assuming I get any time to do so, any suggestions other than Uniqlo (and possibly Vanda) to check out?

Thanks!

Seems to work for everything, they've got shirts marked down to $16.70 and then you get the discount on top. Can anyone recommend an OCBD from them? Was going to get the 'Supima Hyde Park Oxford Dress Shirt'.

 

i remember one of journeyman's posts warning about one of the lines they sell.... the OCBD's had small collars. make sure you don't get those ones.

Aside from Vanda and Uniqlo, Muji comes to mind. Ed Et Al for shoes, J Myers for leather accessories. If you have a chance, check out the book section at Louis Vuitton at Marina Bay.

You could check out The Long Bar at The Raffles Hotel but it's very touristy. If you can, do the Night Safari at the zoo and The Underwater World at Sentosa Island.

I'm sure Journeyman and Nabil will jump in with some great ideas.

You got away with one there fxh. Verema did not finish last, because it did not finish at all. I collected $2 for the only genuine last-placer - Ruscello. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Sorry to hear about your tooth; hope you are not in pain.

I forgot to mention. Insult to injury and all that. The Ms. in her sweep got first place.

Tooth now has been plugged back temporarily ok - until big repairs.

Yes that in the tailored fit used to be the go.
However about 12 months ago they shortened the collar peaks/tips by around .5 of an inch from 3" to 2.5" - 2.6". Mucks then up for roll a bit. Still better than most around. I havent got any of the new ones.

The Men's Regular Washed Original Oxford Shirt is a good old standby - collar roll is slightly better than it appears. Even if peaks aren't as long as "original" Hyde Park. Material look and feel is great. Somewhere between slim and traditional. Not for wearing with a tie - thats the Hyde Park.

Careful you aren't buying the "canvas" line - its usually trendy - stingy collar etc.

Ouch - that's a bummer. Your sweep winnings will at least pay for a very small amount of your dentist's fees!

That's the LE "Canvas" line - the Canvas shorts and chino pants are nice but their collared shirts are (in my experience) flimsy and the collars are too small.

All good suggestions from Gerry.

It's been a while since I've been in Singapore, but the relatively new "Gardens by the Bay" are great and are well worth a look.

Getting some Hainan chicken rice from a hole-in-the-wall restaurant with formica tables and white-tiled walls is a must. I don't know if it's still there, but there used to be a great one pretty much around the corner from Raffles in Seah or Purvis Streets as you're heading away from Beach Rd towards Bugis Junction.

Another great thing to do is to grab some hawker food, possibly from the big hawker centre like Lau Pa Sat (also known as Telok Ayer), which is in the central business area in a rather ornate, open-sided building made of cast iron with a clocktower on top, that resembles a Victorian-era bandstand.

If you haven't tried it before, look for some martabak/murtabak to have as one of your dinner dishes, and have some ais kacang for dessert (although the latter might be an acquired taste).

Apart from Gerry's suggestions and the above food suggestions, a few things that I enjoyed doing while I was there were:

- Walking along Beach Road past Raffles towards the Singapore River past City Hall and the Padang (the old cricket ground/sports ground, where a lot of the white populace were held when the Japanese first invaded Singapore), over the old bridge towards the Merlion and then turning right and walking up towards Clark Quay along beside the river. The area around Clark Quay has a lot of upmarket clubs and restaurants that are popular with bankers/businessmen/expats and various hangers-on, including ladyboys, but there are some nice old buildings around there, too.
- Taking a walk up the Fort Canning hill and having a look around.
- Going to the National Museum of Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum (when I was there, they had a fantastic surrealist exhibition so with any luck they might have an interesting exhibition whilst you're there) and the Peranakan (Straits Chinese) Museum.
