The weirdest thing about me is that I’m not really into shopping (unless it’s exclusively for gadgets, glasses, or watches). Singapore, however, happened to be a shopping capital, so I decided to check out the dozens of malls along Orchard Rd. for the architecture…and to goof around. I still preferred the Night Safari, nonetheless (which! btw, was totally worth the ticket price).My favorite mall-chitecture along the entire shopping strip was Ion, not for the designer boutiques that I couldn’t afford, but for the curved facade, crisscrossing escalators, and digital fish swimming on the undulating ceilings.
Before I knew it, I was off to Bangkok…with the Singaporean sunset engraved in my memory.
