My preceding post about Bukit Bintang might have led you to think that I did a lot of shopping. However, that scenario/possibility remained just like that. The recent trip to Singapore and Malaysia was actually meant to just enjoying the place, though I was open to spending a little on shopping. Maybe I have successfully reversed psyched myself that I did not buy much and if there were few, most were not even for myself. Yehey, my “the-stuff-that-I-really-need-are-free” and “the best-souvenirs-will-be-my-photos-and-memories-beyond-forever” pysche helped. Haha. Anyway, here are some of the things that I was not able to resist:
(a) Beryl’s Chocolates
If you are regular to this blog, you probably know by now that I am a big fan of ANY chocolate. And you can just imagine how happy I was when we went in this chocolate kingdom. Beryl’s Chocolate is like UAE’s Patchi and Philippines’ Choc Nut. Not to be missed.
They offer taste tests inside for the many selections. I brought home the durian (with real durian fruit as filling), tiramisu and almond – all dark chocolates (the choco milk version is available).
(b) Cloud 9. Yes, “our” yummy chocolate is also available in Malaysia. But theirs is more delicious than Philippines’. I “hoarded” several packs. I bought from 168 Store, that’s beside the popular massage and spa center Reborn.
(c) Nips. It follows that it is also there! I missed this, I can trade M & M’s for this. If only Flat Tops were also available, that could have been a complete package. Luckily, when I returned to Abu Dhabi from this trip, 300 pieces of Flat Tops (and other stuff) were waiting for me. My family sent it through a kababayan who vacationed.
From our Putrajaya visit, we dropped by in this grand batik shop wherein we got the chance to observe the batik process. I got a really nice blue-themed rectangular multi-purpose scarf.
(I had to discreetly take photos of my favorite. Speaking of, Petronas Towers will be on next post.)
