I have never been to a city that is as crazy as Singapore when it comes to shopping. When I was there, they have the Great Singapore Sale and everything was going cheap. Really, really cheap.
Some of those boutiques which used to be very glamorous have their slashdown on prices and people queue up awfully long just to get in to browse. Of course, I didn't join the madness because I would rather pay more and shop in peace than to jostle with people. I was looking for some Merrell shoes and found them online where I can buy in peace without the pressures of the crowd.
