Here are some of the decorations at China Town, Singapore in my last visit during the year end.
The decoration wasn't that grand compare to my last stay at Singapore. I am not sure if I'm too early on viewing the decorations.
Cow decorations among the road sides.
This is way too beautiful compare to Malaysia. We have only have red lanterns along the road sides.

I was shopping yesterday at Berjaya Time Square, KL. I did visit some of these toys shops to have a look on those blythe and the price. There are 3 shops that sell blythe.
1. Xl-shop - 3rd floor. I think is the cheapest among the other shops ranging from RM320++
2. Time Machine - 7th floor. Not much blythe dolls available. Price all is RM480
3. graffiti toys-4th floor. Got more selection on blythe dolls, including those CWC limited dolls. I saw among one model is RM1.5k... Gosh~~
Why are those dolls so expensive? Really 不舍得 to pay around RM500 for a doll.

Remember my new Christmas toy-wooden soldier that I brought, I finally know it is call nutcrackers. I saw them at this shop, selling fine, cute, detail wooden toys. There are just so adorable and cute. There sell something similar to these German Christmas Pyramids too. So dam cute. They doesn't allow us to take photos, but I manage to search some pictures at here and here. Wish I have buy to buy them. But the price are quite high.

I hate to climb over head bridge. The escalator is forever not working. It is actually quite dangerous to cross the road as there is a blind point that you cannot see the cars that are coming by.
Last few days, when I wanted to climb up the bridge, the lady infront me stop and was looking at the stairs. I saw something on the stairs, just a glance, my first impression, should be a dog. And I was thinking, "just a dog only, why she looks shock". I went forward to have clearer look. Oh my god~! Monkey~! Why is there a monkey on the stairs?
Both of us look at each other speachless for a few seconds. We mumble to each other why there is monkey at there?And we decided just to cross the road.
Another lady on our back was having the same expression too. Walk until reach down the stairs. Have a few steps to see clearer and was shock, and just cross the road. I think the rest of the people also have the same expression too.
Actually there is an escalator beside the stairs, but who dare to climb the escalator oh~~ not scare the monkey jump to the escalator are?

Here are the things I brought at Lai Guan. I control myself and didn't buy too much this time. Actually the things there are quite expensive, but some are unique and irresistable.

Mushroom, dragon fly, shoe charm and hair pin accesories (I am finding it for ages.)
I couldn't find Golden Dragon on my last visit, found it this time. It is at a desserted area. Somewhere not easy to find. This shop sell lots of products from Clover.

Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐 is a Taiwan restoran famous for dumpling aka Xiaolongbao (小笼包). We had that at Paragon, Orchard Road. It was a long queue outside the restoran and we need to take numbers to queue for my seats.
We didn't wait long for our seats. Here are the small table me and my sister is sitting at.
Sifu is wrapping those Xiaolongbao.
Both of us are boring and we took each others photos in the restoran.
To my surprise that I thought XiaoLongBao is a those normal Bao we eat, but it is soft and watery inside. It need to be eat with ginger and vinegar.
Some tibits that I brought from Singapore. The red pack was a caramel corn snacks I brought from Daiso. I remember seing them at KL before. Melty Kiss for Meiji- SGD3.30 per pack (quite small pack). I highly recommend this one if you like dark chocolate and rum and raisin. It taste so good. And it melts in your mouth. Anyone know where to find Melty Kiss at KL, let me know,ya.
Macarons! Found them at Tangs (Lower ground food area - near the entrance from the mrt). It was colorful and looking good. Too bad the seller doesn't allow me to take photo, so I just brought one and take a photo on it. I tried rasberry and it taste good. The biscuit is crispy on top.It is SGD $1.50 per small macaron.
The more I write this post, the more I feel hungry ~~

It was 40 minutes train to IMM at Jurong East. Here is a picture I took from the train station. It is quite a large building. But I need to walk around 15 minutes to reach the mall.
This is the bus stop beside the train station. From the train station, you can see the path to walk to IMM mall.
The Jurong East Station itself is already very big and spaceious because it is an interchange.
