The day tours (we chose English as it was likely to be less crowded and it sure was) do include shopping stops b...

Re: [Fun Poll] Holidays 2018 - Where You'll be Going

China during the June holidays. End of year, going to UK. Planning on UK end of the year as well. But won't it be too cold in the winter? Cold or not I feel it's subjective. The bad thing about winter time is the day is so short. 4pm onwards is like night time. It would be cold but just wear sensib...

Re: Prologue ION Orchard 30% off and our bookstores

Saw that some commented that bookstores can't really sustain in Singapore. I think one important aspect is that the books in Singapore are just generally too expensive.
