Day and Night Out

The last few days have been an absolute blast, and yesterday was a whole new adventure of it's own. We decided to sleep in a bit because we new that that night we wanted to go that night to Zouk- a local hot spot. So after have a bit of a sleep in we started our day off at Haji Lane.

After shopping at the Suntec Mall the other day, we heard that we must also check out one of the best shopping sections in Singapore. It is located in the Muslim quarter and it is any "fashionista's" dream come true! I fell in LOVE with this store called PLUCK. I couldn't get over their selection of unique items of clothing and furniture and really enjoyed trying on their dresses. At the end of my browsing, I decided to purchase a dress even though it was on the expensive side of things, but I really loved it and I knew it would be a good souvenir and I could wear for at least a couple years to come. It was $78.00, which I thought was justifiable compared to the other dresses that were $200.00+. There were several other amazing stores, and I would recommend anyone who loves to shop to check it out. Unfortunately we are not made out of money, so we mostly did a lot of window shopping, but the culture and the experience was still worth the time to go check it out.

After we we finished off at the Haji Lane, we walked back to the Suntec Mall to check out some electronics. I have been deliberating whether or not I should purchase a new camera because I really do appreciate a quality picture and currently I own a standard camera and it does take sub-par photos. They had killer deals and I took a while to decide, but I ended up getting a great deal on a Canon EOS 60D Camera w/ Canon 18-55mm IS Lens. This in North America would be upwards to $2,000.00 and I got an outrageous deal for $970.00. I know that seems like a lot, but if you know anything about photography, it is an expensive hobby, and so I felt it was worth the money. Oh and it came with a cleaning kit too which is also a bonus! Here is a picture of my new baby and I got to take some awesome photos at our next stop the Singapore Flyer!

Well, now that I have my new toy I was extremely excited to crack it open and put it to good use. Within walking distance of the Suntec Mall is the Singapore Flyer which is a gorgeous Ferris Wheel that gave us an other incredible view of Singapore. The Flyer is the world largest observation wheel and you can even book to have a full butler service and dinner inside the cabins which would be amazing, but of course we couldn't afford it.(If you click on the name Singapore Flyer, it will take you to the page where you are able to see a little more of what they offer). We just purchased the standing cabin that cost us $30 dollars each. I went photo crazy and was was really impressed with some of the results. Also, we all agreed on how romantic it would be if we got the chance to go on a date and have one of those private meal cabins! Ah that would be spectacular!

So after the Singapore Flyer, we headed back to the hostel to have a rest and relax before setting out on our night life adventure! We heard that the most hip happening place is the night club Zouk- and well it really was. I didn't get several pictures of the club itself, although I found a link to photos of the club so you can get an idea of how interesting the decoration was in there. We ended up having the time of our lives and meeting some awesome people! We may have drank a little too much, but it all worth a good story in the end.
