I'm Irma the Sewcraft Explorer - Singapore #part 1

I am backkkk again .. Spending little time to share my journey to find sewing and craft store all over the world. Its became my routine when i go to holiday i will find local sewing and craft store of the country. And now im gonna share about my last holiday to Singapore  .. i've been couple times to Singapore because it doesnt take a long time (only 2 hours by plane from jakarta) and i think Singapore is a complete package ! the food , the store , the city , the amusement park , the people , anything you name it you'll find out in Singapore. 

 Last week on 3rd January 2013 i went to singapore with my husband and my daughter . Actually we had plan to celebrate new years in there but we didn't get the flight ticket its full booked. After 2 hours flew finnaly we were safety arrived in singapore :). Out of changi airport , got maxi cab and straight to the hotel ( we booked hotel on scotts road near orchard road).

The next morning we went to Sentosa island to had some fun ,, we took cable car the perfect ride to see all sentosa island . We saw 4D pirates .. took so much picture of ourselves .. but one word for that day  HOT ! really really hot , sweat all over our body and so damn thirsty. And after enjoyed sentosa island before go back to hotel . I was asked my husband to go to CHINATOWN ,,, yes this is the first place where my explorer begun in Singapore.

When I go to Singapore CHINATOWN always be my favorite one ,, because there’s a lot of sewing and craft store. We took MRT to CHINATOWN and after arrived we were straight to PEOPLE’S PARK building (PEOPLE'S PARK HAWKER CENTRE) , the first floor is like food court there’s so many food stall and I always like the second floor becauuuseee yeayy 2nd floor is full off sewing and craft stores !! ooyesss im dying and so excited :)
