This is Kinda First time I went Shopping alone in Singapore as it was a Saturday and Hubby was busy working on a weekend :O

Also Since I have been to "Arab street" before I blogged HERE.

So, I kinda knew I can make it without much pain, I love My Phone HERE, INTERNET, GPS and IRIS they both are my best friends on a Foreign land, easy to find the routes :)

I saw This Cobbler first time ever " I have seen those bag and shoe repair shops in the mall " in US and in Singapore both, and there are lot of other Great things in Singapore that I some times Compare or ralate to the USA.

Well To my surprise I saw a typical Cobbler sitting on road side doing his job, (this is so common in India) But finding him here was SURPRISE and fun.

  • First because I now know where to go for my Shoe repair (In case I need in future)
  • Second It's a Old way of shoe repair and this guys still doing it, I found it great (It's so sunny and hot out in Singapore afternoons ) this guy definitely deserves some kudos for his work .

And Now here are some Pictures of the Arab street for you guys :-

"A picture does speak a Thousand words"

This is the Most Famous Masjid Sultan Singapore , I feel it looks much beautiful at Night HERE

Seeing all these Dresses (so many beautiful dresses) made me miss India, for sure .

OMG I saw this shop the other day from Bus, and I so wanted to go in , this is the "costumes for event" supplier in Singapore .You can rent the clothing from here, I had so many ideas in Mind, and when I passed by this shop, It was Close .
DAMN they open late !! ( I came to know from their neighbor store)

This random Snake between the beautiful Flowers gave me a Milli second "heart attack" lol... So I clicked him too :/
I mean why they keep all scary stuff in between flowers ?? 

I found these Ostrich Feathers , I also talked about them in my MALAYSIA trip Video HERE, so good to see them they were SGD 60 EACH ( TOO EXPENSIVE)
But they colored them Pink , I was to tempted to look at them.

And here comes the best part , these beautiful cages, They were not too expensive, very affordable, I had the idea that I can use them to store some Jewelery too.

I already liked/ choosed the smallest one from here, if you can see on the second row the first one from right.

But I will buy it later, once I re do my makeup place, as I will throw away or giveaway some stuff make some place for the new stuff. But I Like it so much shall get it soon.

These are the left overs from the clothe roll .So anysize any peice $2.

I Love "pudhina" / "Mint" This was outside one "Punjabi uncles shop " on "Arab street".
You can see the small red roses in between. ( Reminded me of my Mom's kitchen garden back home)

And then....  My weekness the Henna/ Mehendi cone, I asked the girl in the shop if they do henna , she said "Only sell henna cone"

By the way I notices I found only one shop in the whole Arab street that sold henna cones, I was expecting more henna selling and henna artists shops there, I mean this is such a important part of their tradition . Anyways the henna cones looked so beautiful.

This is how Chinese in Singapore Pray, I am not too familiar with all the things they use, but I can see a lot of similarities with the Indian "Pooja "/ praying way.
Most of the shops (outside the shops) you will find this Pooja/ praying decoration done in morning and evenings.
We Asians are similar in many ways....and somewhere our culture too....
Checkout and find out the similarities yourself....

I hope you enjoyed Traveling with me in Arab street Singapore :)

When was the last time you traveled alone and enjoyed the culture and places ??

  3. Hi again Super Princess Jo,
    Would you happen to remember the name of the shop (or approximate street) where you found the bird cages? I noticed the nearest address would be 43 Arab street from the fabric store, so I'll take a look around there. But it would be awesome if you did remember where that shop was :)

    Also the pink ostrich feathers were BEAUTIFUL. I agree with you on the price, though! Haha.


love and Hugs, have a Blessed day ahead :)
