Good afternoon

After sending SK for Chinese tuition, I decided to give myself a little treat. I ended up at my favourite place - Holland Village of course!

Why do I love this place so much? Dubbed the “bohemian enclave” of Singapore, Holland V is an eclectic mix of old and new, where traditional coffee shops jostle for space aside ritzy wine bars and fine dining restaurants. Heh, I'm a boho-chick.

I parked next to the old swimming pool. I love how retro everything is about this place... from the grilles to the colours...

This old tree has a huge fern growing on it! If you look closely, you may see some bikini babes lounging by the pool.

This is a typical 'void deck' of a public housing block. I hid behind the pillar to capture the old man eating noodles.

What's a windmill doing here? Well, it's Holland Village afterall, so no surprise there.

I love Holland V for its interesting shop mix. This is a lifestyle shop that sells artifacts and furniture. It's nestled amongst a row of popular restaurants. Lots of expatriate families were out having brunch at the fancy restaurants, I felt like I was in a foreign country.
Holland V is also one of my favourite haunts for shopping, especially for ethnic clothes and unique labels. I was so happy to see new designs from my favourite 'doggie' label. So I ended up buying...

Not one....

Not two...

Not three...

But four pieces from the same shop! I'm in love with the cute doggie mascot!

What else did I buy? Some costume jewelry, a linen blouse and a crinkly skirt.

I'm such a black and white person, I know.
Good thing I had to go pick SK up or I'll end up burning a big hole in my pocket.
