Mustafa Center – Toko Serba Ada

mustafaHeard of Mustafa Center in Singapore? It’s a 24 hours shopping center located on Syed Alwi Road in Little India. I call it “Toko Serba Ada” in Bahasa Indonesia, means everything you want to find is there! Ya not exactly everything lah but I can say that everything that’s inside a supermarket is also here! Plus, they also sell books, DVDs, watches, electronic goods, footwear, clothing, and also jewelry and household appliances. Around the area you can also easily find money changers and some places to eat.

It has 6 floors and two buildings. You can find a lot of entry and exit doors. You might need few hours to explore this place if you are really a shopaholic. Not to mention that things here are cheap! (I mean it’s cheap for Singaporeans :p) but I found that some things are also cheaper than Indonesia! I bought Pepero before which cost S$1 only when in Indonesia I need to pay for Rp.15.000 (S$1.5) haha.. So yeah, this is one of the place that you need to go when you come to Singapore. I suggest you to come early in the morning or maybe around late night cos’ maybe it won’t be so crowded. Maybe.

So, there are some points on why I like this place:

  1. Perfect place to buy whatever things you want, especially your daily needs.
  2. Open 24 hours.
  3. Things are cheap.

Why I don’t like this place:

  1. Sometimes it’s too crowded that you don’t even have enough space to walk.
  2. I don’t suggest you to buy mobile phones here. Maybe they sell for low price but we cannot guarantee. I have read some bad reviews about buying mobile phones here so I don’t recommend.

How go get here : Stop at Farrer Park MRT station (North East Line) and follow the signboard to reach Mustafa Center. It’s so easy to find.

The Iconic Merlion Park

Location : One Fullerton, Singapore

Rate : 10/10

Merlion is a landmark of Singapore – Singapore’s national icon, and the major tourist attaction located near the Central Business District. It’s a half-fish and half-lion statue – the head of a lion and the body of a fish, situated at the mouth of Singapore River. This is one of the most favorite spot for everyone especially tourists to pose and snap pictures.

I have been to this place for a few times and still find it beautiful. It’s beautiful at daytime or nightime. If you come on peak season, sure you will squeeze with lots of tourists.

So, what can you do here?

  1. Snap pictures – Oh, this is a MUST. Snap as many pictures as you can with lots of creative poses.
  2. Enjoy the View – Everything around here is worth to see. Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade theatre, Waterfront Promenade, or the Merlion itself. It will be nicer at nighttime if you want to feel the vibe.
  3. Eat at nearby restaurant – There’re quite lots of restaurant around the Merlion Park. You can sit there, enjoy your dine and at the same time you can enjoy the viber around Merlion too. It’s fabulous!

Been here before? What things do you like to do when you visit this place?
