On the way back from Australia, Manbacon and I had a quick 2-day stopover in Singapore, just to break up the journey a little. We arrived in Singapore around 9.30 at night, and met up with my delightful and insanely energetic cousin Sabrina about an hour later for a trip to Mustafa Centre. Yes, that's right, we went shopping at 11 at night!
No, there wasn't some late-night shopping extravaganza going on. In fact, it is possible every night, thanks to the fact that Mustafa Centre is a veritable temple to consumerism that is open 24 hours a day, every day. Seriously, if you're ever in Singapore and find yourself suffering from insomnia, that's the place to go. Have a look at some of the wonderful items we found.
