DestinAsian - - THE GUIDE SINGAPORE -

I love brows­ing the shops along Chip Bee Gar­dens in Hol­land Vil­lage. My fa­vorite lo­cal de­signer Ong Shun­mugam ( ong­shun­mugam .com), who makes ex­quis­ite dresses, has a bou­tique there, as does Bynd Ar­ti­san ( byn­dar­ti­san.com), which is a leather com­pany that makes these won­der­ful cus­tom­ized books that are per­fect for spe­cial gifts. You can put them to­gether your­self, in­clud­ing choos­ing your own color com­bi­na­tions and adding per­son­al­ized mes­sages. They also con­duct in­ter­est­ing leather work­shops where crafts­men walk you through some of their old-school tech­niques. I al­ways tell peo­ple to check out Bou­tique Fairs Sin­ga­pore ( bou­tiq­ue­fairs .com.sg), which is held twice an­nu­ally. I could spend an en­tire day shop­ping the amaz­ing col­lec­tion of house­wares, de­signer fash­ions, and gor­geous ac­ces­sories. And one of my fa­vorite restau­rants is Blu Kouz­ina ( bluk­ouz­ina.com) in Dempsey Hill. They serve the best Greek food in Sin­ga­pore; it re­minds me of the meals my hus­band and I en­joyed on our Greece hon­ey­moon.
