After a day of sightseeing and Universal Studios, you would think that there wouldn't be any time for any retail therapy, would you? Vivocity was a nice detour back to the hotel. Rather than taking the free shuttle from Sentosa, we decided to catch the free train to Vivocity, and the MTR back to Orchard Road.
Vivocity - jam packed full of people since the favourite Singaporean past time appears to be shopping, and shopping centres are the best way to escape the searingly humid weather too. I didn't buy much in Singapore, as the prices are quite expensive compared to the shopping in Hong Kong.
Food was definitely on the agenda though - and my mum and I loved exploring Food Republic, a neat hawker style food court, with heaps of food stalls and ladies pushing around drink carts
I think it's a really cool idea, and wish we had a food court like this in Australia! Loved exploring what all the different stalls had to offer - noodles, satay, desserts, basically anything you can think of...
Slices of fruit, and various other goodies for sale, along with my favourite drink in Singapore, young coconut!
Fresh fruit juices
One of the many stalls - some had crazy long lines (which can only mean they are good!)
Toast box - selling coffee and kaya toast
Cool 'old school' decor
Combination plate of various fish cakes and tofu
Doesn't look that great, but was pretty tasty! Loved the silky smooth fish balls
And of course had to wash it down with yummy young coconut - so sweet and awesome, I could drink a few of these with a meal
In search of some dessert
Some hot dessert offerings
That's my order in the making, I'm sure you can all guess what it is!
Ice Kachang of course! A monstrous colourful tower
