for the normal ezlink card hindi yata pero they got this singapore tourist pass that i never tried before (check here: http://www.thesingaporetouristpass.com.sg/), pag may relative kasi ako n ppunta yung normal na adult ezlink lang binibili ko for them.

BTW so named brands like Adidas, Nike etc..are cheaper in SG? and you can find everything in Funan?
sports goods are very easy to find in sg, nagkalat mga yan. may place where you can find them cheaper and its called queensway mall in queenstown (west side to ng sg), dun madami at mura- parang cash & carry sa makati or cartimar nung araw. pero i suggest get in official retailers n lang din.

as for sim lim square, yes its true hindi ka maloloko kung alam ko kung san ka titingin, specifically iwasan mo yung 1st to 3rd floor stores pero since tourist kayo, im sure you wouldnt be able to tell din. And just like what i said, dahil kulang oras nyo, sa funan pa lang solve na kayo.

wag n rin kayo mag atubili mamili ng tsokolate sa sg, mas mura pa mga chocolates sa mga sm.

thanks for the tip, I looked at the SG Tourist pass, it's $30 for 3 days, unlimited bus/mrt, is this better?

yup, its definitely better than the normal ezlink lalo na kung may nakahanda na kayong itinerary ng papasyalan. kasi when you buy the normal ezlink its S$15 na tapos may laman n sya S$7 yata. Eh ang charges ng lahat ng transpo sa sg depende sa distansya, pag mas malayo mas magastos.

normally buses are cheaper pero most of the time malamang baka mag taxi or mrt n lang kayo. Honestly, if you got enough budget naman at konti lang papasyalan nyo mag taxi n lang kayo to get around, mabilis pa byahe since maliit lang ang sg at tipid pa oras nyo - hindi pa nagtataga ang mga drayber dun. :grin:

if you really wanna go around sightseeing the famous locations in sg ng isang byahe lang, this might help: http://www.ducktours.com.sg/sp.php -- nasubukan namin to once and ok naman so far. :2thumbs:

Meron at live telecast na parang PPV shown over local channel via starhub. If I remember correctly, CH.02 yun kasi yun yung sports channel ng provider na yun. And yes, it's free without any commercial break. :2thumbs: By the time the fight starts sa pinas, tapos na ang laban dun sa napapanood namin dati sa SG.

Ewan ko lang kung libre pa rin this time around kasi sobra ang hype na dala ng upcoming bout. :lol:

last time i was there wala akong alam na specific video stores sa mga malls along orchard. But for sure meron yan lalo pa't madami nang nagbubukasan na malls sa orchard. If she got the time pwede nya isa-isahin yung mga malls dun tapos tanong na lang sa customer service desk to show her the way - engkaso yung pinapahanap mong video ang walang kasiguraduhan kung merong stock. :sweat: If it's any consolation, nandun sa orchard mismo yung pinaka-cheap na game retail store sa buong SG na alam ko - check this site: qisahn.com. Don't worry legit yan, i used to buy my games with them alot before.

BTW, tell your mom to avoid shopping in lucky plaza for gadgets at all cost. Pwede dun for small souvenirs lang pero wag na wag sya bibili ng mga mamahaling gamit dun.

Thanks. Pero marami na daw siyang napuntahan na stores pero wala daw yung hinahanap kung starwars complete.

Ttry ko nalang yung kay blu ray manila. Pero mahal kasi and hindi ako sure kung counterfeit ba yun.

Hi guys! just a question, saan kaya sa SG may magandang hobby/collectible toy stores? I mainly collect 1/12 figures from S.H. Figuarts, Figma etc..
I will be in SG from July 19 to 20 then lipat naman ng Malaysia after. Any answer would be greatly appreciated. :)
