Mustafa Shopping centre / Serangoon plaza

We reached our hotel by around 6:30 in the evening and after an hours rest we planned to go shopping at Mustafa as this was the only option we had in hand as it was already late evening. We took a cab and headed straight there ( my first thought was cab charges are not all the expensive in Singapore, but later on I fell for their MRT and buses)

Mustafa Shopping centre also known as Serangoon plaza is this HUGE HUGE shopping place in Singapore and the only one that is opened 24*7 . So almost all the nights in Singapore we spent shopping here :) . This shoppers paradise is of two blocks, the first block is closed by 11pm whereas only the 2nd block is open 24 hrs. So, when you plan your night shopping see to it your in the right block. Unlike what I ended up in.


Both these blocks contain all the stuffs you could name *literally* from bags, clothes, jewellery, food, books, artefacts, furniture, electronics, consumer products and jus everything.. guess the only thing they don' sell is husing and automobiles. Me at Mustafa Shopping Centre

Some Indian Savouries
I was there at Mustafa almost 4 or 5 nights of my total 7 nights in Singapore, spent around 20 hours shopping there and believe me I was still not able to see the entire shopping centre, so huge it was :). On the way to Mustafa shopping centre we stopped at one of the Indian restaurants at Little India to savour some Indian delicacies atleast one meal everyday, so that we don' miss home food .Dosa (rice pan cake) with Chutney and Sambar from an Indian Restaurant

@Bharat

Thank you so much!:) Yeah, compared to other places things are a little less expensive here. I was out there shopping for 5 nights and I did buy a lot of stuffs :)

another thing that they don sell there is liquor, cos in Singapore Muslims are not permitted to have liquor license.
it is not discrimination but the muslin community has requested it.

yes i agree with vasanthan on the liquor notion...though i rarely frequent there, its advisable not to go on sunday evenings coz its so crowded. i was flabbergasted by the time i left mustafa... did u go to Orchard? if u are comin to Sg next time, u could visit Paragon, Wheelock or Centre Point... Nice clothes for ladies at reasonable prices...

@Vasanthan

That is news to me, I didn't know that. Thank you so much! :)

@wither leaves

Oh, good we didn't visit the place on Sunday eve. We opted for the night safari:) . Ya, I did go to Orchard road. Loved every bit of it!! . The next time I come there will check out the places you've suggested me. Thank you so much! :)
