SINGAPORE FROM MEMORY
Yes, I have been absent a while. Blame it on jet lag but, of course, no lag lasts this long.
On the last Saturday in Singapore, we went downtown to the spectacular Marina Bay Sands whose brochure touts: SEE WHAT THE WORLD IS TALKING ABOUT.
It is, in fact, really something to talk about and I will do my bit.
Our all too brief visit started in the shopping mall ( although mall is, by association, the worst word to use to describe the massive area of elegant shops (sorry, shoppes!) and swanky restaurants.
As we started out the day this huge photo touting the arrival soon of our favorite Chinese dumping place caught my eye. Seemed a gimme to plunk wee M. in the middle of it. Sort of gives you an idea of scope.
The brochure brags:
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is home to a mounth-watering selection of exclusive designer boutiques like Alfred Dunhill, BALLY, Bottega Venata, Burberry, Cartier, CHANEL, Dior, ESCADA, FENDI, Gucci, Hermes, MUI MUI, PRADA, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo, Stefano Ricci, Yves Saint Laurent and many more. With an unmatched mix of renowned luxury brands, new store concepts and emerging labels not found anywhere else in Singapore, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is truly a fashionista's paradise.
Not being a fashionista by any definition I can only say the place, in it's opulence, quite astounding to this resident of a state where the cows outnumber the people by a significant margin.
