Yes, you heard me right. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are in Singapore. Well, sort of. They are among the first global A-list celebrity waxwork figures to arrive in Singapore ahead of the opening of Madame Tussauds Singapore. Madame Tussauds Singapore is set to open at Imbiah Lookout at Sentosa on 25 October 2014. Do pop by to check them out if you are in Singapore.
Yesterday I went to Plaza Singapura to check out their Red Dot Sale – hoping to get some good deals on craft materials. I even signed up for their free membership to enjoy the discounts 🙂 Stepping into the store is like entering a crafter’s paradise. There is so much to see and explore there – even if you aren’t looking for anything specific to buy. As I look through aisles of craft items, I try my best to control myself – especially at the yarn section. There is so many varieties that you really wish you could take home all of them (ok, maybe some). After a thorough combing of the area, I realised the yarn I wanted to get is no more on the shelves (I guess because it was a great deal) and they only have plastic darning needles available. As heartbroken as I was, I decided to proceed to Daiso next door and see what I could find there.
Daiso is a Japanese chain store that sells everything in SGD 2.00 They have a great variety of items – from household, gardening to even crafts. They have many stores all over the island. It’s one of the great places to shop in Singapore.
Ok, I guess I am digressing – back to my hunt for craft supplies. Once I entered the shop, I proceeded straight to the Handicraft section. Then the stuff I was looking for soon caught my eyes along with other fascinating stuff. They had updated the needle felting packs with new design and crochet pack (amigurumi, I think). I didn’t buy any of these, as I didn’t want to blow my budget for what I needed. But one thing’s for sure – I will be back to check out Daiso again.
*** Stay tuned for the next post to find what amazing stuff I have bought from Daiso 🙂
